Citrix VDI-in-a-Box is a simple all-in-one VDI software appliance that enables Windows® administrators to rapidly deliver centrally-managed virtual desktops to any user, anytime, on any device – for less than the cost of new PCs. VDI-in-a-Box provides built-in high-availability and eliminates 60% of traditional VDI infrastructure by creating a grid of off-the-shelf servers using local storage. Unlike limited low-end solutions, VDI-in-a-Box delivers a rich, personalized user experience.
VDI-in-a-Box eliminates two key hurdles small companies face in adopting desktop virtualization: cost and complexity. The solution is designed to be operated by Windows administrators who typically manage PCs in small IT departments and are not virtualization experts. SMBs can offer increased end-user flexibility and security while eliminating 80% of PC management and replacement costs. Companies that could not afford desktop virtualization can now deploy in phases and grow on demand.
