Securely Manage Data With Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
What is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)?
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) utilizes virtual machines to provide and manage virtual desktops which may be hosted in the cloud or on hardware in data centers. However, a majority of VDI refresh cycles are moving from on-premises data centers to cloud deployments. VDI hosts desktop environments on a centralized server and deploys them to end-users upon request.
In VDI, users have the ability to access virtual desktops remotely from their devices. Users can access these virtual desktops from any device, from anywhere in the world.
How Does VDI Work?
The desktop runs on virtual machines (VMs) over a hypervisor and is delivered to endpoint devices such as laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Users can then use the endpoint devices to interact with the operating system and its apps.
VDI can be classified as persistent and non-persistent. Persistent VDI is customized for a personal user, and the user can log in to the same desktop each time. Non-persistent VDI consists of desktops that revert to their initial state after the user logs out.
VDI operates by completing the following actions:
- The end-user logs into their virtual desktop.
- The login request is accepted after authentication is completed. The user is then sent to their desktop.
- The server creates multiple VMs on which the virtual desktop is hosted.
- The desktop image the end-user sees is a replica of the original desktop.
What are the Benefits of VDI?
In today’s era of digital transformation, PC desktops have inherent drawbacks with scalability and security that VDI can rectify. VDI offers a number of benefits for organizations that do use it. Some of these benefits include:
The flexibility of endpoint maintenance saves teams time and money. Routine upgrades and installations can be completed without user intervention, without disturbing end users’ productivity. Desktops can easily be virtually created by copying images and files, and then swiftly deployed. End users are not tied to any particular hardware with VDI, so desktop fixes and new desktops can get them up and running in no time.
