VDI or Virtual Desktop Integration is a computing model that separates and virtualizes the desktop operating system and applications from the actual physical client where they originally resided, and placing it on a server. The server then provisions and distributes the OS and applications, handling the bulk of the computing power. This is used to provide centralized management of distributed Virtual Machines to the desktop vs. individually managing...
