Obviously, I’m kidding. But, in the last months, I heard, on a daily basis, of new VDI projects (true projects, not PoCs) driven by the enterprise
tablets iPad adoption!
It’s not difficult to find a Manager asking to access his desktop (and relative enterprise applications) while traveling. Many times there are vertical applications (i.e. some ERP clients) available only on Microsoft Windows environments… and they need those applications to do their daily job.
Well, these are small deployments (usually tens of clients): a niche in the niche, with no serious impact on the virtualized infrastructure… but they are growing.
It’s very interesting to look at this trend, and how iPads are starting to impose a lot of choices in the enterprise IT. Indeed, I can’t really say if it’s interesting or worrying!
