If you’re thinking about moving to a virtual desktop infrastructure—you’re not alone. Most people who either have moved to or are considering VDI wan, do so to improve the economics and efficiency in their desktop delivery, ease maintenance and management of their end user computing environment and improve desktop security. VDI certainly can do all this—but despite it being a virtual solution, you also have to think about the hardware behind the scenes.
After all, a key objective of a successful VDI deployment is the end user experience. In many way, it’s the one objective that probably matters the most—since the experience has to match or exceed its physical counterpart. So how can you assure that you’re getting the best experience for your end-users? You don’t want to be the “slow-poke” when it comes to your VDI experience for them. When it comes to delivering a high-performance, low-latency virtual desktop environment, you need to think about both the virtual and the physical infrastructure behind it.
