REAL WORDS OR BUZZWORDS VDI – VIRTUAL DESKTOP INFRASTRUCTURE
This is the 46th article in the “Real Words or Buzzwords?” series from SecurityInfoWatch.com contributor Ray Bernard about how real words can become empty words and stifle technology progress. Once again, this is a topic that will be familiar to IT folks but not so much for physical security industry folks. I’m writing about this because of the increase in attention companies are giving to establishing or upgrading a physical security operations center (SOC). First, we’ll look at what VDI is, and then how it applies to a SOC deployment. VDI is an alternative to the traditional desktop computer:  one computer per desk or workspace, typically running Microsoft Windows and its Office applications, as well as other applications. Instead, the operating system and desktop applications are run in a server virtual environment, usually in a data center. All applications and data used remain on the server with only display, keyboard, and mouse information communicated with the local client device, which may be low-end PC, a laptop, a thin client device, or nowadays a tablet or a smartphone. Special software on the user’s device displays the desktop screen and handles the keyboard/mouse interaction, converting as necessary for touch-screen devices. RAY BERNARD, PSP, CHS-III READ MORE
