One of the greatest challenges facing IT professionals today is the number and variety of desktop virtualization (VDI) solutions from which they can choose. Because of the complexity inherent in virtual desktop infrastructure and the plethora of available applications and solutions, planning a successful proof of concept (PoC) is the critical first step to a successful VDI implementation.

Many virtual desktop infrastructure PoCs fail because companies attempt a one-size-fits-all approach, realizing too late that it's not just about the desktop. The network, desktop protocols, software, desktop images, storage and server sizing are important components to consider when running a PoC.

This white paper examines four major considerations for efficient, effective and successful PoC results:

  • Desktop and application delivery,
  • Application virtualization,
  • Server virtualization
  • Pilot user groups.
