Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
Achieve simplicity and velocity across your environment at any scale
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Software
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) software is used by businesses to enable access to remote desktops, laptops, and operating systems that would otherwise be inaccessible. VDI software allows users to create virtual machines to run multiple operating systems on a single computer, create layers of security within a network, and locally and remotely access virtualized desktops. Businesses use VDI software to effectively use existing computer resources without increasing costs, quickly update enterprise software tools, allow employees to run multiple operating systems on the same machine, as well as use their own devices while still maintaining data security. VDI tools allow users to create unique operating systems to launch platform-specific tools. VDI tools are often the key component in infrastructure as service products, in which host servers provide virtual tools (most commonly desktop infrastructures). VDI tools should also integrate with or be able to launch any additional business software a team or company requires.
To qualify for inclusion in the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure category, a product must:
- Have the ability to achieve application and desktop virtualization
- Have administration capabilities for access assignment, control, and delivery
- Provide users with a virtual desktop they can access remotely
