Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a virtual machine (VM) running on a centralized server. VDI is a variation on the client/server computing model, sometimes referred to as server-based computing.

The term was coined by VMware for its VMware server and Virtual Desktop Manager (VDM).
