Our industry’s trend towards virtualization quickly evolved from a buzz phrase to a storm. Server virtualization has been a great fit for a vast majority of companies, but can the same be said for desktop virtualization?
There is no doubt that desktop virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) are emerging industry trends, but are they right for your exact business goals? That is the question this guide intends to answer.
Although building VDI is a goal of many IT organizations, does the excitement surrounding VDI technology obfuscate the business problems it intends to resolve? This book will serve as a guidepost toward effectively determining the best alignment between technology and business need.
That guidepost can serve as both a directional marker and a warning—and the intention is to accomplish both. The aim is to help the IT architect determine what business requirements drive the move toward desktop virtualization as well as choose the right path in desktop virtualization.
