Check out this interview between Virtual Strategy Magazine and Virtual Bridges CEO Jim Curtin as they talk about the VDI market; the difference between Gen1 and Gen2 VDI; integrated online, offline and branch VDI; key drivers for VDI; and what questions attendees of Citrix Synergy should be asking of the VDI vendors at the show.
VSM: You introduced VDI Gen2 late last year. Why do we need a second generation solution and what are the key differences?
Jim Curtin: Like every technology adoption phenomenon, the second generation tends to be where innovation truly takes off. Railroads, personal computers, iPads… and now VDI. First generation VDI solutions established the process and the goals but also revealed some limits and core problems, including cost, complexity and coverage. Gen2 has delivered faster, more nimble, purpose-built advancements - things like integrated online, offline and branch VDI; the ability to transcend on-premises and cloud environments; and the ability to unify endpoint management. With VDI Gen2, the industry is finally starting to deliver the results customers have been looking for.
