How does a VDI work?

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a virtualization technology that segregates desktop operating system, applications, and data from the hardware, and offers a robust, secure, flexible yet affordable desktop solution. The virtualization software creates desktop images and enables access to end-users over a network.

Functionality of VDI

In the VDI environment, virtual desktops are provisioned based upon user-group profiling, ensuring that end-users have uninterrupted access to role-specific applications and data via a customized interface. Since data and applications reside on a central server, management becomes simple. All bug fixes, policy, and software upgrades are applied only on the centrally stored golden images ensuring security and compliance adherence. The ability to provide consistently high application availability anywhere, anytime, and across any device improves end-user experience and productivity.
