Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has been around for
years, but the high cost of deployment and issues of scale and performance have
traditionally kept most small and mid-size enterprises from adopting the

VDI technology a final solution or just a means to the end for workers wanting
to achieve a more seamless and productive experience?
