Consider Long-Term Needs

Make sure the VDI solution can support future scalability needs.

Understandably, many of us tend to focus on immediate needs – there is always something that needs to be fixed now. However, when deploying a VDI solution, fixating on the short term can lead to potentially outgrowing the infrastructure much earlier than planned. To avoid this, it's important to consider long-term needs and projected company growth up front. Today, many hyper-converged appliances have built-in scalability features so it's easier to "right-size" the investment. In other words, not just knowing that it can scale, but precisely how high, and in what increments it can scale. This takes the guesswork out of VDI and ensures that you're not under or over investing for your needs.

The introduction of hyper-converged appliances, enhancements to brokering software and new management solutions have made virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) easier to plan, deploy and run than ever before. The cost per seat has decreased significantly, and there are fewer steps required to get a VDI appliance up and running, making the adoption of desktop virtualization more accessible across a variety of industries. With the threat of security breaches increasing exponentially, and continued BYOD use in several highly regulated industries like health care, VDI continues to grow in relevance and importance as a way to deliver security-by-design. In this slideshow, Jeff McNaught, executive director and chief strategy officer, Dell Cloud Client-Computing, has identified five tips organizations can use to effectively implement a VDI solution.
