What is a Virtual Desktop?
A virtual desktop is a desktop that can be accessed over the internet from practically anywhere and performs in the same way as a physical desktop when using a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. Anyone can log on using a PC, Mac, laptop, iPad, Browser, or smartphone, broadening the range of devices and operating systems they can utilize, as well as where and when they can work. Data is kept in the cloud, so no information is stored locally on users' personal devices. If the device is lost, this is extremely useful because it means there is a low-security risk and no work will be lost. The level of personalization customers will have when they connect to their virtual desktop will depend on whether they utilize persistent VDI or non-persistent VDI.
