  42. 42. Virtual Desktops Many organizations are considering Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) as a replacement for traditional PCs for office workers. The perception is that VDI reduces desktop TCO while delivering a high quality user experience. Our findings indicate that VDI tends to reduce costs in some areas, but increase costs in others. The net result is that VDI is more expensive than a well-managed PC environment for office workers. While VDI proponents evangelize the areas where VDI saves money, they often ignore the new costs introduced into the system. Microsoft Whitepaper
