Corporate desktop usage and management has long been a necessary evil for IT groups. Most employees need full desktops and there are usually multiple types of desktops required for different business units: XP for accounting, Mac for creative design, Vista for sales and people in the field, Linux for technical staff, and so on. This multi-level matrix of who needs what can be a major management headache on its own. When one adds the support of all the different desktop needs on top of that, and supporting some of those desktops remotely on laptops, desktop management can quickly consume most of the IT management budget and time. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solves two of these major management headaches: location and standardization.
