How To Get Started With Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a desktop delivery model, which allows client desktop workloads (operating system, application, user data) to be hosted and executed on servers in the data center.

Users can communicate with their virtual desktops through a client device that supports remote desktop protocols such as RDP and ICA. You may also be interested in knowing the Benefits Of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

Once you know that you could benefit from desktop virtualization, how to get started with Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).

To take advantage of desktop virtualization, organizations should start by identifying the business problems they are trying to solve and then understanding how different desktop virtualization solutions can address their specific business needs. Microsoft Desktop Virtualization is unique because it understands that one size does not fit all and aims to provide solutions across the entire desktop stack.

For scenarios in which organizations want to provide a personalized Windows experience across any connected or offline corporate PC and IT is looking to simplify management and accelerate deployment of corporate applications to users on demand, organizations should begin by adopting Microsoft App-V and User State Virtualization. Both technologies apply to every desktop as they work across all physical and virtual instances of Windows, running locally or hosted in the datacenter. And throughout the application lifecycle, App-V can save organizations 27 percent in labor, or $82 per PC annually.

Additionally, for scenarios in which enabling flexible access to Windows from multiple devices, centralized desktop management, and security and compliance, Microsoft recommends VDI and RDS Session Virtualization. Organizations can use both technologies for user-device flexibility and enable secure access from unmanaged-devices.

VDI is more beneficial when users need high level of personalization and operating system isolation, like in the case of doctors or financial advisors; whereas RDS session virtualization can provide users access to single or limited centrally hosted LOB applications with more scalability, like in the case of call center agents, insurance agents etc. Therefore, VDI and RDS Session Virtualization are good for every company but not necessarily for every desktop.

Customers can learn more about which of Microsoft’s desktop virtualization solutions would be right for their business on the virtualization site.
