Our company is a managed services hosted solutions provider, where we predominantly use Hyper V to provide virtual terminal servers to all of our clients.
I will be looking to put to the test VDI shortly to see what we can do with it & what use it will be to us if any. I will also be trialing a product called V workspace shortly as well (http://www.quest.com/vworkspace/ ).
But before I through myself headlong into days of testing & reading, can anyone tell me of their experience with VDI & why you use it instead of TS? I would be particularly interested in hearing from anyone who mainly uses TS, instead of client server & if you have incorporated VDI into your model & why?
Personaly, on the surface of things. I can’t see the advantage of VDI Vs TS or Citrix for example. As you are still providing a virtual environment either way. You still have to allocate disk space, memory etc on the host server . Non mobile users can use thin client with either model, but for mobile users, I cant see any benefit with VDI at all. If the argument is to provide a locked down desktop in VDI, then this has been done for years through madatory profiles or loopback policies. If the argument is economic, how does VDI liscensing compare to TS?
