Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Use Cases

CIO Review Europe | Tuesday, June 29, 2021

Companies employ published applications or VDI technology like Citrix CVAD or VMware Horizon to strip away everything but the necessities, such as screen pixels, keyboard, and mouse clicks, to give the best possible experience over a wide area network or the internet.

FREMONT, CA: COVID-19 compelled the majority of individuals all around the world to work from home practically immediately. Everyone had to figure out what Work from Home was all about. Still, the desktop and application virtualization technology that provides the best user experience today was first introduced in 1989, more than 30 years ago.

However, why do businesses opt for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops or VMware Horizon? What are some convincing reasons and applications that make this technology more appealing than a regular PC? VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) has a future as the technology is anticipated to generate 7.6 billion dollars in revenue in 2020 and between 15 and 30 billion dollars in value by 2026, depending on the provider. Work from Home or Anywhere It Makes Sense to Do Business is a popular use case, but VDI can also be used for the following scenarios:

To Homogenize the Endpoint

Write a single application for a single platform and distribute it to a variety of endpoints. Companies do not wish to develop apps for Mac, iOS, PC, Android, Linux, and other platforms. They write it for both Windows and Linux and can distribute it to any target.

Improve the Speed and End User Experience When Delivering A Heavy Legacy Application

Legacy applications are ‘heavy’ in terms of resource usage, and the farther the end-user is from the data center, the slower they become. Companies employ published applications or VDI technology like Citrix CVAD or VMware Horizon to strip away everything but the necessities, such as screen pixels, keyboard, and mouse clicks, to give the best possible experience over a wide area network or the internet.

Comply with Data-Protection Regulations

Every Windows or Mac machine that has data on its hard disk poses a data security risk. Encryption is beneficial, but it is ineffective if it is unlocked or broken. The need to protect all firm physical PCs is substantially decreased now that all critical data is stored in the data center.

Implement A Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) Policy

Provide a stipend and allow users to use whatever computer they wish; they bear the support load. The corporation provides the software and computing power, while the employee is responsible for providing the computer. Employees have more choice in the tools they use, and the firm saves money on support because hardware faults are now the user's responsibility.
