VDI Smackdown: Head-to-head analysis of Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft VDI, Quest vWorkspace, and VMware View

Virtualiserade desktopar (VDI) är nått som massor med folk snackar om (på gränsen till förmycket snack ibland), men som få faktiskt har sett eller ens satt upp en PoC (Proof-of-Concept) på...
Nu har Ruben Sprujit och hans kollegor gjort ett enormt arbete och publicerat detta till allas beskådan på internet.

De skriver så här:
In the current market there's an increasing demand for unbiased information about Desktop Virtualization solutions. This white paper is focused on solutions that are anticipated to have an important role in VDI deployments. An overview of available features of Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft VDI, Quest vWorkspace and VMware View is created to better understand each solution's capability. The overall goal of the white paper is share information about:


  • Application- and Desktop Delivery Solutions overview;
  • Explain the different Desktop Virtualization concepts;
  • Explain the pros and cons of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure;
  • Describe the different Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) vendors and solutions;
  • Compare the features of Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft VDI, Quest vWorkspace and VMware View;

Making applications available to the end-user, regardless of the technology being used, is the ultimate strategic objective of an Advanced ICT infrastructure. The Virtual Desktop (vDesktop) is an essential component in the range of Application and Desktop delivery solutions and in essence, provides the following functions:
  • Flexibility: Detach the vDesktop from the endpoint; Several vDesktops next to one another
  • Access: vDesktop works independently of location, endpoint and network; Uniform workstation
  • Security: Server Hosted – VDI; data in the computing center
  • Freedom: Every user has their own desktop with administrator access when needed;
  • Management: Hardware-independent ‘image’
  • Legacy: It is simple to offer legacy applications on a state-of-the-art platform
  • Sustainability: Power Management, handling the necessary resources in an efficient manner.
