The Software Defined Data Center and VDI

The software defined data center promised to run all current and future workloads on commodity hardware. However, VDI currently requires unique hardware to perform at scaleā€”a need met by a set of vendors like Astute Networks, Tintri, Nutanix, Pivot3, and V3. VMware is also addressing the unique requirements of VDI adoption in the VMware View Rapid Desktop Program. Therefore VDI currently constitutes an exception to the every workload promise made by the SDDC.
