Global Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Market 2017-2021

About Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

A virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution can be considered a platform in which a client server is employed to access a user system virtually. This type of computing model makes use of a centralized storage space, where data and system applications are stored centrally on the server. End-users have to enter their login details to gain remote access to these applications and data from any location. However, establishing such a setup requires an uninterrupted network.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global virtual desktop infrastructure market to grow at a CAGR of 11.31% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global virtual desktop infrastructure market: Citrix, Huawei, Microsoft, and VMware.

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Atlantis Computing, Centerm, Cisco Systems, dinCloud, HP, IGEL Technology, LISTEQ, NComputing, NetApp, Pano Logic, Parallels, Red Hat, Stratodesk, and Verixo Technologies.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of latest trends in the market is cloud-based VDI for SMEs. In terms of cloud-based VDI, SMEs can deploy VDI solutions easily and can also pay for the service on a monthly basis. VMware has identified strong growth prospect in cloud-based VDI solutions. Also, Citrix is partnering with leading CSPs to offers its XenDekstop and XenApp through cloud platforms to increase the adoption of its cloud-based VDI solution among SMEs. VMware charges $35 per month per desktop and AWS partnering with Citrix offers its workspace solution starting at $21 per month per user. This reduction in VDI pricing and the inception of cloud-based VDI will continue to result in the increased adoption of VDI solutions worldwide.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is workplace flexibility and business agility. The VDI environment eliminates the need to manage thousands of individual systems and enables centralized management of resources in enterprise data centers or server rooms. Patches and software updates in VDI can be carried out in a centralized and simplified manner. Other benefits include higher flexibility, simplified backup operations, greater security control and compliance, faster problem resolving capabilities, rapid deployment of virtualized desktop, and application on-demand to any devices.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is infrastructure bottlenecks. VDI involves running virtual images through a server, storage, and network infrastructure stored in an enterprise data center. A modern data center infrastructure supports multiple virtual machines that operate on a single server, where the dependency on high-performance or hyper-converged infrastructure is high. Many enterprises end up adopting infrastructure that is not capable of supporting VDI operations, resulting in increased CAPEX and OPEX. Enterprises also face bottlenecks in running multiple virtual images simultaneously on the IT infrastructure, which leads to lower productivity due to increased latency period and decreased input/output per second (IOPS) throughput.
