Enterprises are eager to implement virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to address BYOD, disaster recovery, mobility, security, EOL for Windows XP and more. But the high cost and complexity of building their own on-premises solution have been huge barriers to VDI adoption.
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, VMware Sr. Director Danny Allan (the former CTO of Desktone till its recent acquisition by VMware) will discuss how enterprises are using cloud-hosted desktops and apps to quickly get all the promised benefits of VDI, without VDI's upfront investment and ongoing infrastructure requirements. Businesses routinely reduce VDI costs by 30%-40%, while eliminating vendor lock-in and delivering much better user experience over on-site VDI.
