VDI Frequently Asked Questions
VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) is used to create a virtualized desktop environment on a remote server setup. VDI segments the servers into various virtual desktops which the employees can access remotely through their devices.
VDI is a form of cloud computing where the client/server protocol used is the virtual device interface that mirrors the graphical user interface. Therefore, VDI can be considered a DaaS application of the cloud, and in time, VDI and cloud computing will converge further.
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is defined as the hosting of desktop environments on a centralized server. It is a form of desktop virtualization, as the desktop run within virtual machines (VMs) and are delivered to end user or employees in the network
The primary purpose of VDI is that you get the benefits of desktop lets take an example of how VDI can be used in a pandemic situation like coronavirus, All your employees get a centralized data strorage from their homes, using VDI solution you can monitor your employees activity this helps your organization to keep up the productivity and also gives freedom to work from home.
Features of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
Each virtual machine operates on the same server as an individual machine, and even if one of the VM fails in the operations it does not affect the working of other VMs. Different research and sequencing on improving the efficiency of VMs can be carried out without impacting the function of different workstations.
All the VMs over the virtualized infrastructure use a hardware base image to process various requests and to handle different drivers. This saves the extra expense of creating each hardware device for each workstation; instead, centralized hardware will accommodate all the workstations.
Real OS Experience
A virtual desktop responds in a similar way to an actual operating system. The program functions and provides a similar experience for the users and also improvements in the system registry level can be performed at specified locations, such as the DLL replacements.
