Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has been around since the 1980s, and it was used sparingly by organizations who allowed their employees to work remotely from time to time.  

Fast forward to March 2020, and VDI pretty much kept the world economy from completely collapsing as the coronavirus forced businesses to pause onsite operations.  

As we enter Year 2 of the global pandemic, companies are realizing the benefits of remote work with the help of reliable VDI, and this model is set to become the new normal for years to come.  

And what’s not to like about VDI? It’s a risk-free technology for supporting secure remote work, and it can be deployed by small-to-midsized businesses and huge enterprises alike.  

VDI connects users via a web browser into a virtual machine instance running on a server somewhere, be it inside a corporation’s data centers in Citrix or VMware, or provided by a cloud platform like Microsoft Azure.  

In the past, deploying a VDI environment into your existing IT infrastructure was complex and time consuming. There was a lot of time spent evaluating, analyzing and planning how that deployment would look. With the events of the past year, hopefully you are well beyond this stage in your VDI journey.
