Delivering VDI 1.0 to Remote Office Branch Office (ROBO) is hard
For many organizations, half of the workforce is remote from the data center. In VDI 1.0 the data and control plane are intertwined, and as a result users must connect through the data center’s VDI frontend components. Unfortunately, the latency between users and the data center impacts the remoting protocol’s performance.
To solve the problem, IT has to reduce the latency by moving the VDI session host closer to the user. However with VDI 1.0, this requires the installation of a complete VDI infrastructure and the hiring of VDI trained staff at each location, which is cost prohibitive and operationally complex.
