Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/sgbdbg/cloudbased) has announced the addition of the "Cloud-based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure Market in the US 2012-2016" report to their offering.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Cloud-based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 26 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing need to reduce desktop infrastructure costs. The Cloud-based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure market in the US has also been witnessing the reuse of old IT infrastructure.
Key vendors dominating this market include Citrix Systems Inc., Desktone Inc., MokaFive Inc., and VMware Inc.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are SecureOnlineDesktop, RedHat Inc., WorldDesk Ltd., SCC, Dell Inc., and Netelligent Corp.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Center team said: 'One of the major advantages of adopting cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions is the resulting ability to reuse old IT infrastructure. Cloud-based services are delivered to end-users over the internet and therefore, end-user systems do not require high-end configurations to support applications. End-user systems merely need to display transmitted content, allow inputs from end-users, and transmit data to the cloud infrastructure. Further, with virtualization of network infrastructure, the gap between old infrastructure and modern infrastructure is minimized as old infrastructure can provide enhanced computing capabilities post virtualization. Therefore, the ability of cloud-based VDI solutions to support applications on existing infrastructure is driving their adoption among an increasing number of enterprises in the US.'
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the growing need for enterprises to reduce the costs of providing desktop infrastructure. The adoption of cloud-based VDI solutions reduces the costs associated with desktop provisioning. Also, it enables employees to access enterprise content and applications from any remote location by using their own computing devices.
