Virtual desktop infrastructure holds tons of promise for IT organisations, but many organisations were less than satisfied with early solutions’ performance and user experience. But that’s changing — fast. The combination of new VDI software platforms and modernised hyper-converged infrastructure appliances are rewriting the rules of the game for IT.
Two fast-growing technologies – hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) — are transforming how IT supports critical business initiatives. Individually, each represents a big leap forward in achieving the cost efficiency, scalability and agility demanded by organisations. Global HCI sales are expected to skyrocket by more than 43% annually by 2022, with total revenues exceeding $12.6 billion. And VDI revenues will experience a compound annual growth rate of more than 27% between 2016 and 2022. By deploying HCI and VDI in concert, however, many enterprises are looking for synergistic operational improvements created by combining modernised infrastructure with a scalable, reliable and efficient VDI software platform.Download the white paper
