A virtual desktop (vDT) does not prevent laptop malware infection – at least not if local browsing is permitted, but it does leave a user’s corporate desktop unimpaired. Not withstanding this example of the type of security benefits vDTs can provide, a debate continues as to whether or not virtual desktops are on a whole more secure than their physical counterparts
Madden dismisses VXI as a “reference architecture”, but this would be comparable to calling the VCE Vblock simply a reference architechture for a private cloud infrastructure. Virtual Experience Infrastructure (VXI) is a solution initiated by Cisco, but it cleverly redefines the VDI category to include not only virtual desktops, but also voice, phone, video, Telepresence and collaboration. It incorporates contributions from ecopartners such as EMC, Wyse, VMware and Citrix.
