Bangalore: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI runs the desktop operating systems and application software in a virtual machine using the hardware of the server.

VDI also simplifies the tasks of management as all the workstations can use the same image of the OS or the application software, using the same image all the desktop systems can be automatically updated.
