The technology we reviewed with Workspot fits squarely into the “Why didn’t someone think of that before?” category. Put simply, Workspot simplifies and streamlines VDI deployment and management by putting the control plane in the cloud. Everyone who has tried it can say with certainty that, “VDI is hard.”

In what they’ve dubbed “VDI 2.0,” Workspot is aiming to make it a whole lot easier by putting a number of the challenging parts of VDI behind a SaaS-based management interface that handles many difficult aspects of “doing” VDI, especially at scale. Figure 6¬†illustrates which components of a traditional “VDI 1.0” deployment can be abstracted by putting Workspot in their place.

We expect that the main players like VMware and Citrix will look to go this route eventually as well, but due to sheer inertia, it’s going to be a while. When combined with hyperconverged infrastructure, Workspot can help you deploy radically simple VDI environments in less than a day.
