Desktops in the Cloud -- It's not Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)!

DescriptionLong

Desktop virtualization has been generating significant buzz with its promise of exponentially improving how we manage our desktops. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) may mean hosted desktops.  But, contrary to conventional wisdom, it doesn’t mean those virtual desktops can be effectively hosted in the cloud. VDI and cloud-hosted desktops are very different animals. In fact, VDI goes against most cloud fundamentals. VDI requires significant upfront CAPEX, is difficult to try, is complex to implement, results in vendor-lock in, and doesn’t scale easily. Conversely, with a true cloud-hosted desktop, companies get up and running quickly with no CAPEX, no installation, and can easily adapt the environment to their changing needs.  Cloud-hosted desktops provides all of the benefits of virtualized desktops without any of the hassles. This presentation will compare the two approaches to desktop virtualization including the total cost of ownership (TCO) and their implications for your business derivuse cases from real customer case studies.
