From a network point of view, most VDI solutions just extend the I/O bus out from the data center to the end user. Good news if you have a network that isn’t 10GB out to the workstations; 100MB connections work fine for VDI as most of the heavy data traffic resides in the data center.

On the virtual end, setting up a smaller number of VDI desktops on existing hardware is easily done in most robust virtual infrastructures. Once the IT pro has successfully proven the business case for VDI, a dedicated front-end (using shared storage) or stand-alone server is usually the best course. For many, spinning up 10 to 30 low-resource desktops (compared to virtualizing high-resource servers) is something that can be done without adding additional hardware.
