Abstract: 

As per the generic definition Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, or VDI, refers to the process of running a user desktop inside a virtual machine that lives on a server in the datacenter. VDI offered benefits manageability, performance, and security. Different Hypervisor allowed multiple user desktops to run as separate virtual machines while sharing underlying physical hardware resources such as CPU, memory, networking and storage. But VDI implementation was cumbersome, first you had to design Storage, provision adequate capacity, provision for IOPS .Lots of these required guess work and it was prone to issues when users actually started using VDI’s .In between there happened multiple changes in Data Centre .Enter Flash Storage and Hyper converged Infrastructure .This took a away a lot of complexities out of storage provisioning. And now with private and public cloud getting mainstream ,we can also host VDI on cloud .To avoid regulatory issues the new solution provide option where the Storage is in DC ,while the VDI presentation layer is in cloud.
