When the first wave of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) was implemented, the most frequently deployed applications were lightweight and made minimal demands on CPU. These demands centered on maintaining the client environment and applications individually, protecting data on the device, and enabling access from other locations.
The virtualization of applications and the smaller compute footprint of VDI delivered the added benefits of security, accessibility, flexibility, and manageability for the data center.
Today, you’re faced with major changes in VDI requirements and the challenge of new resource demands for VDI. The demand for higher visual quality of graphics, high performance, and the expansion to virtual workstations means that even lightweight VDI applications are putting pressure on performance.
Business is global and is conducted on a wide range of devices, and workplaces are transforming.
