Welcome to the Huntzinger Tech Blog. Our goal is to provide some insights and perspectives on various technical topics that CTOs, IT directors, and other healthcare IT professionals deal with from a technical infrastructure perspective.
This month we will be covering virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) – a very broad topic that can mean a lot of different things depending on the environment and use cases involved. Software from VMware, Citrix, Microsoft, and others have allowed IT departments to explore different ways to present a virtual desktop environment. VDI can mean everything from Windows OS running a full desktop environment served to a zero client, to an auto-logon PC that uses a local OS but launches directly into a Citrix XenDesktop environment. As the options for VDI or desktop virtualization have expanded, the way you can choose to implement these technologies is as limitless as your potential use cases. So how do you know where to start?
