Virtual desktop

A virtual desktop, sometimes called a VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure), describes a type of server-based desktop where each user has a dedicated OS instance running in a VM (virtual machine) hosted on a server. Each VM provides a desktop for a single user at a time, and the OS instance running inside the VM is generally a Windows client OS (but could be Windows Server). A variety of different client devices, including tablets and smartphones, can be used to access virtual desktops.
