Offering Market Insights

In VDI, the operating system (OS) runs on a virtual machine hosted on a server in a data center. The image of the desktop travels through the network to the end user’s device, wherein the user can interact with the desktop. VDI offers every user with his/her own dedicated virtual machine running its own OS. The OS resources, including drivers, CPUs, and memory, among others, operate from a software layer known as a hypervisor. The hypervisor replicates their output, handles the resource allocation to multiple virtual machines, and enable them to run alongside on the same server. The offering segment of VDI is classified into solution and services.
