What is a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure?

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure ("VDI") is a desktop virtualization technology where the operating system runs and is managed in an on-premises or cloud data center.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure "VDI" is a desktop virtualization technology where the operating system, typically Microsoft Windows, runs and is managed in an on-premises or cloud data center. The virtual desktop image is delivered over a network to the user’s device, such as a PC, tablet, or mobile phone, which allows the user to interact with the operating system and its applications as if running them in the office. 

For example, if you are working in your home office, you log into your company’s server remotely, and it’s as if you are in the office. You see the same screen on your device, have access to the same applications, and company data. It allows workers to not be tethered to the office and have the same computing experience, no matter what device they are using.
