The Cloud-Based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Market 2012-2017

NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Cloud-Based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Market 2012-2017
http://www.reportlinker.com/p01027065/The-Cloud-Based-Virtual-Desktop-Infrastructure-VDI-Market-2012-2017.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=IT_Hosting

Report Details

For enterprises, traditional desktop computing is nearly extinct. Most workers now carry laptop computers to and from their desks, and the 21st century trend towards a mobilised workforce means many workers no longer have desks at all. Traditional desktop computing consumes excessive time and resources. 

Virtualised servers and desktops hold the key to more efficient IT management. Although virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has historically been deemed too expensive, the recent surge of cloud computing offers a cost-effective, managed platform for VDI that stands to revolutionise the structure of enterprise IT. Visiongain has determined that the value of the global cloud-based VDI market will reach $11.2 billion in 2012.
