VDI's Fatal Flaw: V3 Solves the Latency Bottleneck
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), when done correctly, can outperform and provide a better end user experience than a physical desktop or laptop. However, understanding deployment architecture options, network latency, and storage latency are key to a successful VDI deployment. VDI solutions offer organizations many advantages compared to physical PCs including: Lower TCO over three to five years, Decreased total energy consumption and heat output, Easier for IT staff to deploy and manage large numbers of Windows desktops and Increased security. The challenge is, traditional VDI deployments suffer from one systemic problem - network latency inherent within the architecture slows overall throughput causing a performance bottleneck.
