Puneet Chawla, CTO of Workspot and Amitabh Sinha, CEO of Workspot were both interviewed by CloudTech on their VDI journeys since 2005.
There’s been a fundamental shift in the way we work since the year 2000. Over time the desk job became the home office/plane/coffee shop job, over the objections of those nostalgic for the traditional 9-5. Employees wanted access to their work wherever they happened to be and technical staff scrambled to keep up with the demand. Enter virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).
When VMware introduced the first VDI product in 2005, it was a revolutionary technology answering a growing remote work problem. Soon more companies joined the game. Amitabh Sinha and Puneet Chawla, now at Workspot, worked on developing VDI at Citrix and VMware respectively – and their thoughts on VDI’s first decade and where the technology is going will be of interest to anyone in this space.
