What's Virtual Desktop Infrastructure?
Virtual desktop infrastructure, sometimes also called virtual desktop interface (VDI) is the server computing model enabling desktop virtualization, encompassing the hardware and software systems required to support the virtualized environment. The term was coined by VMware Inc. In the past couple of years, some large organizations have turned to VDI as an alternative to the server-based computing model used by Citrix and Microsoft Terminal Services.
The advantages using VDI – Because the "virtualized" desktop hosted on a remote central server, all of the programs, applications, processes, and data used are kept on the server and run centrally. Users can also switch among different virtual desktops simultaneously to work with different jobs and don't affect each other.
