A Guide to Building a Windows Virtual Desktop (VDI or Desktop-as-a-Service) Experience Properly

Are you just starting out with VDI or a seasoned VDI engineer that’s been running an environment for years? I’ve found over the year that Windows-based VDI and DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service) can be very complex and has many dependency layers you need to target in order to run a successful environment that your users will love. You will want to focus on user experience and security closely to build something high performing yet extremely secure. The EUC world is constantly changing so what you deployed a few years ago has a whole new set of considerations now.

I’ve written “The How to Build A Windows Virtual Desktop (VDI) Experience Properly Cheat Sheet” here to help share this knowledge with the community:

It is 46 pages at the moment (and growing) with many years of my experience in the field as well as lots of great info from my peers in the community. I will continue to add to it over time as things change in the EUC world. Hope this helps the EUC community!
