What is VDI? Virtual Desktop Infrastructure – the PC of the Future

The rise of smart phones and tablet computers like the iPad have increased employees’ desire for anytime, anywhere access to their personal desktops and applications. It doesn’t matter whether the desktop is served from a local PC, or over the network, or over the Internet as long as they’re available, customizable, and provide a smooth experience.

Technologies like VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) and application virtualization eliminate the need to have a powerful desktop at the front-end. With desktop virtualization, all you need is a thin client or a lightweight PC and your desktop environment is served to you over the network or a web browser, so the desktop becomes device independent. Desktop virtualization can help rein in the costs of managing and maintaining PC infrastructures. VDI also ensures that private data on the virtual desktop is kept secure.

Cost has been a barrier for many small and mid-size businesses looking to virtualize their desktops. However, during these challenging economic times small businesses need to take advantage of the cost savings (infrastructure, energy, maintenance, and management) virtualized desktops offer.
Citrix/Kavisa VDI-in-a-box is the ideal solution for small business because it allows SMBs to virtualize desktops for a fraction of the cost typically associated with virtualization and the ROI is proven.

Join Citrix and ACE IT Solutions for a live webinar, where we will demonstrate how VDI-in-a-box, the winner of 11 major virtualization awards, including the 2010 VMworld Gold Award for Desktop Virtualization, and InfoWorld Technology of the Year, can help you do more with less.
