Virtual Desktops, VDI, Online hosted Remote desktop – What is it?
VDI, Virtual Desktop, Hosted Desktop, Online Desktop and Remote Desktops would all mean almost the same. Some even call it Virtual Remote Computer, Internet Hosted Computer, Online Computer, Internet Desktop, etc. In some cases there may be a slight technical difference between these terms. Virtual desktops or VDI are hosted in remote data centers so that they are available online using internet 24*7*365 from anywhere. This online virtual desktop is not team viewer or go to meeting but your own virtual workstation hosted on the internet for you to access it anytime from anywhere. Its like a Full screen Windows PC that you can connect to from any supported computer, cell / mobile phone, tab, etc.
