Users today need to access applications and data from their home computers and mobile devices just as much as they need to from their office computers. The desktop has evolved into an end-user environment that needs to be accessible around the clock and from any place. The challenge for IT administrators lies in fulfilling these requirements without compromising control and security.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) effectively meets these needs while offering compelling benefits compared to traditional desktops. VDI enables storing and running of desktop workloads including operating systems, applications, and data in a server-based virtual machine that resides in a data center. The user gets a standard, complete, and entirely customizable desktop computing environment through the Remote Desktop Protocol. Our podcast for this week explores VDI in detail and throws light on
