Gain a Clear Picture of What Your VDI Project Will Entail

Amanda White

While virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) may not provide the same user experience as a real desktop, our Arthur Cole points out that both mobile technology and cloud computing have transformed VDI from a niche application into a more interactive data environment that more and more CIOs are on board with implementing.

However, IT organizations are never going to be able to successfully implement VDI without the support of end users, who see desktop virtualization as a loss of control over their workspace.

If you’re interested in bringing VDI into your business, it’s important to have a clear picture of what you’re getting into, in terms of cost and project scope. After all, just because the technology exists doesn't mean it's right for your business.

To help you in your VDI endeavors, we’ve compiled a list of tools to help guide you along the way, including a TCO calculator to decide which is a better investment: a fleet of PCs or virtual desktops. You'll also find a tool to determine if you have sufficient infrastructure in place for an optimum desktop virtualization experience.
