Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is a technology that allows users to access a virtualized version of their desktop operating system and applications from any device, over a network. VDI provides a number of benefits, including:
VDI requires a server infrastructure to host the virtual desktop environments and a client device to access them. The virtual desktop environments can be accessed using a thin client (a device with minimal hardware and software that relies on the server to perform most functions) or a thick client (a device with more hardware and software capabilities that can perform some functions locally).
VDI can be implemented using a variety of technologies, including virtual machines, containers, and streaming protocols. Some popular VDI solutions include VMware Horizon, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services.
