"Cloud-Based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Market Will be $11.2bn in 2012," Says Latest Report

Virtual desktops have been on the radar of enterprise IT since the 1990s, but only recently has technology reached a point where they can be expedient and cost-effective enough to warrant serious discussion and consideration.

London, United Kingdom, September 21, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) was devised as a replacement for the traditional PC model, its ease of management touted as the major advantage. However, the cost of outlay for server hardware and network equipment was an early entry barrier for many enterprises.

In 2012, much higher network speeds and the leveraging of public clouds are allowing VDI vendors to capitalise on this previously underused technology. Visiongain calculates that just over 50% of US enterprises are undergoing a migration to virtual desktops or contemplating one in the next 12 months.

Although the virtual desktop is but one of numerous desktop virtualisation delivery methods, visiongain believes it is poised to claim significant market share. A number of well-funded incumbents and imaginative startups are ushering innovative, cloud-based VDI technology onto the market, promising to irrevocably change the future of enterprise computing and IT.

With an ever-decreasing total cost of ownership and a broad market trend towards cloud computing, visiongain believes that cloud-based VDI usership will nearly quadruple over the forecast period. As the PC model becomes more widely recognised as rigid and cumbersome, companies across all the world’s markets will turn to novel computing solutions in efforts to maximise their operational efficiency and derive competitive advantage from their software investments.
