The need to reevaluate desktop strategies is driving many companies to consider VDI. VDI solves many traditional challenges of physical desktops. With VDI, desktops are centralized onto virtual machines that run in corporate data centers. Cloud-hosted virtual desktops take that one step further. They make day-to-day tasks, such as deploying new desktops and applications and supporting distributed workers, easier and less labor-intensive. Users access their virtual desktops via remoting technology, making it possible for IT to finely control the movement of data into and out of the data center. If a laptop or mobile device is stolen or lost, your enterprise is at less risk because data is not stored on the local device.
