More about this event
VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) has for several years been the much vaunted future of the desktop. But while most IT professionals have at least considered VDI, many have been put off by the high storage cost. With new diskless storage technologies dramatically altering the cost equation 2013 may finally prove to be ‘the year of VDI’.
BYO (bring, or buy, your own) is creeping into most organisations through executive use of iPads and other personal devices, for work purposes. These new devices are being adopted irrespective of whether they have support from the IT department.
