It is obvious that we are in the center of a universal technology shift. With that being said, cloud computing, fueled by the move to 100% virtualized environments, represents an enormous platform change that is altering the current situation of IT. As this continues to gain momentum, IT strategies must be defined, planned against, and implemented in the context of this new world order versus continuing IT paradigms.
Desktop virtualization, or VDI, is a buzz word that has been floating around the IT community for quite a while now. A virtual solution is a cloud application that replaces physical resources with Web-based application interfaces. For example, VDI allows a user to log into their desktop (virtual, of course) via the Web browser or smart-device app and be able to access their files, documents, and whatever else is stored in their cloud-based desktop.
