FAQ

What is VDI?

A VDI stands for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is a form of desktop virtualization technology that is used to distribute a virtualized desktop environment on a remote server setup. In other words, virtual desktop infrastructure hosts virtualized desktop environments from a centralized infrastructure located in a data center and deploy them to end-clients over a network. These virtual desktop environments are hosted on a virtual environment, known as a virtual machine, that is controlled through VDI management software. In simpler terms, A VDI(Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) runs virtual machines to provide and manage virtual desktops, and it allows organizations or users to access applications and services of their virtual desktop environments by anywhere and anytime on desktops, laptops, or mobile devices.

How does a VDI work?

To understand how VDI works, there are 3 main data center components of a VDI architecture you must know. They are virtualization, hypervisor, and connection broker. First, virtualization is the creation of a virtual version of desktops, operating systems, servers, storage, or applications that behave just like their physical functionality. And virtualization solutions support VDI deployments by dividing a physical system into many different and separated virtual environments, known as virtual machines(VMs). Secondly, this virtualization technology is achieved by using a thin layer of software called a hypervisor. A hypervisor is software that separates the operating system from the underlying hardware by creating a virtualized environment. Thirdly, when implementing a VDI solution, a connection broker is a software program that finds a virtual desktop within the resource pool, and it allows the end-user to connect to a remote virtual desktop through any device or location. V2 Cloud’s BYOD(bring your own devices) model of VDI solution allows users don’t need to actually be in the office at their physical desktop without compromising security.

Is V2 Cloud’s VDI a good solution for my business?

If your business is facing some challenges like you want employees to work from home or you want to get rid of your existing VDI provider for an expensive and slow VDI farm, V2 Cloud’s VDI solution would be definitely a good choice for your business. The following are some most important benefits of virtual desktop infrastructure(VDI) provided by V2 Cloud:

Cost savings. The VDI solution from V2 Cloud is actually cheaper because it does not require any physical hardware resources. The IT organizations are no longer needed to dedicate large areas of space and huge investments in physical resources.

High scalability and accessibility. Cloud computing consumes resources by utilizing a scalable infrastructure when VDI needs it. And V2 Cloud’s VDI applies BYOD(bring your own device) model which allows end-users to use their own devices to access files, applications, or cloud services from any location with a smooth and striking fast cloud experience.

High data security. One significant benefit of V2 Cloud’s VDI solution is its data security. Our VDI solution stores user’s data in a secure cloud. Thus, users still can access their data even though the end device is lost. In addition, all V2 Cloud’s cloud computing technologies include backup and recovery, and it takes a full backup of the user’s virtual machine automatically each day. Our VDI solutions also have lots of security features: all-inclusive UFW firewall for every virtual machine, encrypted connection, antivirus real-time protection, and more.

Is VDI the same as RDS?

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure(VDI) and Remote Desktop Services(RDS) provide very similar functionality. However, they are not exactly the same.

VDI is a form of desktop virtualization technology that is used to deploy a virtualized desktop operating system environment that is managed via a remote server. It creates a different and separate virtual operating system on top of a hypervisor for each individual user. What this really means is that VDI is built around the Windows Client Operating System. VDI solutions provide end-users a windows desktop operating system with exactly the same experience as a physical laptop or computer. VDI only dedicates a virtual machine for each user. This means each user has a dedicated desktop operating system instance that is fully isolated from other users with customization features. Thus, the cost of VDI is actually depending on the number of users.

RDS, formerly known as Terminal Services, enables users to remotely access a virtual machine or an operating system over a network connection and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). With RDS, it builds around the Windows Server Operating System, and multiple users share the operating system, applications, and hardware resources of the host server. RDS has the significant benefit of being more cost-effective and easier to implement, and it is best suited to businesses with multiple users needing the same number of applications.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure(VDI) and Remote Desktop Services(RDS) both are desktop virtualization and remote desktop technologies. Organizations could select one by focusing on their needs. At V2 Cloud, we provide secure, cost-effective, and high-quality desktop virtualization either VDI or RDS.

What is the difference between VDI and VM?

A virtual machine(VM) is a form of software that allows users to run an operating system within another operating system, it is a virtualized instance of a computer that can behave the same functions as a computer to run programs and operating systems. We use a thin layer of software called a hypervisor to create virtual machines. It allows us to divide a physical system into many different and separate virtual machines, and relocate physical hardware’s resources to virtual machines. A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure(VDI) runs virtual machines to provide and manage virtual desktops, and it allows organizations to access applications and services of their virtual desktop environments by anywhere and anytime on desktops, laptops, or mobile devices. Therefore, VM is used for implementing a virtual desktop in VDI. In simpler terms, VM powers VDI.

How do I access VDI on my laptop?

Setting up and accessing virtual desktop infrastructure(VDI) is easy. Here are the following steps:

1- The first step to setting up a VDI is understanding what you need or what is the scope of your project. We offer tailored plans based on the number of users, computing resources, and security level.

2- Next, once you have determined appropriate resources for your need, you can use our V2 Cloud VDI solution and follow its instructions to set up your VDI within 20 minutes.

What is VDI software?

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure(VDI) software is a type of software that allows you to create and run virtual machines to organize and manage virtual desktops within your native desktops which could be any device like laptops, tablets, or mobile devices. It hosts the desktop on a central server and deploys them to end-clients over a network. There are a lot of VDI software providers such as Amazon Workspaces, Microsoft Azure, Citrix Workspace, and V2 Cloud. However, selecting an appropriate software for your business to manage virtualizations is important. Your virtual environment might be ineffective or non-functional if you are not using the right tool. At V2 Cloud, we developed our own virtualization software to focus on speed and simplicity.
