The paper has the following goals:

  • Provide an application and desktop delivery solutions overview
  • Explain the different desktop virtualization concepts
  • Explain the pros and cons of desktop virtualization
  • Highlight why application virtualization and VDI are a perfect fit
  • Describe the different desktop virtualization vendors and solutions
  • Compare the features of the various desktop virtualization solutions

Conclusion:

Which Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution is THE best?

It’s impossible to give an accurate answer to the question without a better understanding of the

requirements..

In essence it depends on various areas as mentioned in paragraph 4.5, ‘VDI Strategy’.

It’s important to have a Vision and Strategy around Application and Desktop Delivery.

Designing, building, managing and maintaining the Optimized Desktop infrastructure using the

Right Technologies, corresponding vendors and products is an important step.

Success = Vision x Execution x Adoption. “This whitepaper is a useful resource in this journey!”
