VMBlog talks to VDIworks about the future of virtualization

VMBlog is one of the oldest, and one of our most favourite online virtualization publications. We’ve been fans for a while and have enjoyed their broad coverage of companies and technologies in the VDI space. Recently, VMBlog sat down to talk with Amir Husain, our President and CEO, about his views on the future of virtualization generally, and VDI specifically. The discussion was pretty interesting! Here’s an extract, followed by a link the VMBlog piece: “One idea whose time I believe has finally arrived, is Desktops-as-a-Service. Under this model, the device will no longer primarily be an OS/application execution endpoint, but rather a visualization layer – a window into a virtual computer with unlimited capacity, growing and shrinking in an elastic fashion at some highly secure remote datacenter. Of course, end point devices will provide ever richer means of interaction via multi-touch gestures, visual cues ala Kinect, voice recognition ala Siri and numerous other methods. This means that processing at the endpoint will still occur, it will just be of a different nature. […]

Are cloud-based Web desktops the future of computing?

If you’ve been involved with VDI (Virtual desktop infrastructure) for more than the blink of an eye you will probably be wondering what┬ágood VDI does in an age when applications are all running in the cloud. After all, if applications are being designed to be cloud aware – and hence, multi-user and network resource aware – then what value could a Hypervisor possibly bring? Isn’t a Hypervisor just a short term stop gap until all applications migrate to the cloud and the notion of separating┬áthe OS and the application’s execution environment from the hardware ceases to be of relevance? Come to think of it, if everything’s running in the cloud, does the local operating system installed on the client really resemble today’s OS? This happens to be a set of particularly important questions. There are multiple points of view that exist in the industry today concerning these, but at the end of the day, the shape of behemoth software and hardware companies will be influenced – nay, will be determined – by who is right and who is wrong on this subject. Now, the really large (and somewhat smart) companies will try to bet on multiple possible outcomes but the real winners will be those who get it right and who have developed their strategic roadmaps and direction not by hedging bets, but simply by being correct.
