  • Unveiling the mystery behind VDI implementation costs

    Answer - Your VDI implementation can get costly -- fast. With servers, licenses, storage and tools to buy, the Capex for VDI can skyrocket, but remember that over the long term, Opex is less with VDI than with traditional PCs.
  • Top tools for user profile management

    Tip - You can manage profiles with Active Directory or the tools built into your VDI software, but third-party options from AppSense, RES software and Liquidware Labs offer more features and can reduce storage needs.
  • How advances in networking improve VDI sessions

    Tip - For VDI sessions to work well, the network has to be fast. Advancements in WAN links, Wi-Fi and 4G, plus the continued spread of reliable networks over the world, are making it easier for workers to access VDI anywhere -- but things aren't perfect yet.
  • Hybrid storage systems can help meet IOPS demands

    Tip - To deal with boot storms and other times of peak demand, your first instinct might be to over-provision resources, but there's a better way. A hybrid storage system is often cheaper and gives better performance.
  • Why nonpersistent VDI hasn't taken off

    Opinion - Nonpersistent VDI sounds great in theory, but beneath the surface lay management and application compatibility nightmares. For these reasons, many shops look to persistent VDI, but new tools could make shared images easier to implement and manage.
