About Khoury Lab VDI


What is VDI?

VDI stands for virtual desktop infrastructure and it is a virtualization technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server in a data center. VDI is a variation on the client-server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing. The term was coined by VMware.
