Optimizing storage for virtual desktops

With increased security and compliance requirements coupled with accelerating Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trends in workplace, desktop virtualization, also commonly known as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), is one of the top technologies for streamlining client device management. VDI initiatives essentially decouple client operating environments that comprise of Operating System (OS), applications and user data, from the physical client devices. These client operating environments are hosted in a centralized virtualized data center in the form of desktop virtual machines (VM). Centralizing these operating environments can facilitate simpler and more effective security and compliance adherence, simplify management and protection of these environments, and enable secure access to user data irrespective of the device and location.
