VDX Blog
I hear a lot of VDI talk out there from a lot of different people in a lot of different roles.  That's great.  I talk with customers about VDI a lot, it's great technology and should be considered by just about everyone.  To further that conversation, I want to talk about VDI and why it deserves some thought - not just "I want VDI" thought, but real thought about what it is, what it does, what it doesn't do, and how to do it the right way. Some people talk about VDI because they want to sell VDI...
