With the size of enterprise increasing the scope of its technical and network needs are doing the exact same thing. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine running on a centralized server. VDI is a variation on the client/server computing model and can also be referred to as Session Border Controller (SBC) or Desktop Virtualization. By installing this modern virtualization, network administrators can provide users with access capabilities and at the same time they're heightening data security throughout the organization. The top benefits of VDI are:
•Desktops can be set up in minutes, not hours
•Client PCs are more energy efficient and longer lasting than traditional desktop computers
•IT costs are reduced due to a fewer tech support issues
•Compatibility issues, especially with single-user software, are lessened
•Data security is increased
