Amsterdam / De Meern, 25 March, 2013 - Project Virtual Reality Check (VRC), an initiative of Login Consultants and PQR, has recently published a new study: State of the VDI and SBC Union 2013. This study reflects the use of Server Based Computing (SBC) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) within 662 organizations worldwide.

Ease of management is the main motive

The aim of this project was and is to analyse developments in the application and desktop virtualization market and objectively presenting the results.

"This research shows that ease of management is the main motive for the deployment of desktop virtualization," says Ruben Spruijt, CTO of PQR and one of the founders of Project VRC. "Administrators don’t need to visit all offices for every patch or upgrade, but can update their virtualized desktops from the datacenter."

Top Three Goals

Most VDI and SBC customers consider ‘improving the management of desktops and applications’ the most important goal they want to achieve with desktop virtualization. VDI clients place 'increasing the agility of the organization' and 'providing a flexible alternative to SBC' in second and third place. SBC-customers set ‘saving costs' and 'supporting branches’ as the second and third goal.

"The research shows that the adoption of desktop virtualization in the organization is determined by the user experience and VDI seems to be the best solution for this," says Jeroen van de Kamp, CTO of Login Consultants and co-founder of Project VRC. "We expect a possible increase in growth for VDI in medium and large companies within the next two to three years.''

Management tools developed in-house

The study also shows that management solutions built by vendors are barely used for the management of virtualized desktops environments. Self-written scripts and Group Policies are the most popular tools to manage VDI and SBC environments.
