Cloud Clients and Virtual Clients

Analyst report by 451 Research, published on 12/23/2013

Over the past three years, the technology we used to know as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has had to adapt rapidly to new trends in mobility and cloud computing. IT departments must now deal with multiple device types rather than a company-owned desktop, while the cloud is radically changing application delivery methods, as well as back-end infrastructure deployments. This report covers the latest developments in virtual desktop technology and looks ahead to discuss how the market should evolve over the next 12-18 months.

VDI is now only one of many delivery models for the transforming of workspaces ? a process driven by the consumerization of IT, the proliferation of non-Windows devices, the rise of a mobile workforce, and a fundamental shift toward cloud computing. This report aims to provide a deeper dive into the technology, vendors and use cases of desktop virtualization. It examines the two major new trends that are transforming VDI as we have known it: the need for enterprise IT to incorporate and manage mobile devices and their associated data; and the emerging opportunity of desktop-as-a-service.
