Posted by Nathan Muller on March 16, 2015

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure - VDIMany businesses are ready to make the move to Virtual Desktops and an integrated, virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI). They want to exploit the compelling benefits - both economic and operational - that are driving this popular approach to managing IT. But taking on the transition can be intimidating. That's where CWPS comes in.
