Research and Markets: The Global Cloud-Based VDI Market to Grow At A CAGR Of 30.6 Percent over the Period 2012-2016

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4nv66f/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Cloud-based VDI Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing need to reduce desktop infrastructure costs. The Global Cloud-based VDI market has also been witnessing the increasing use of handheld devices. However, the need for high initial capital investment could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space include Citrix Systems Inc., Desktone Inc., MokaFive Inc., and VMware Inc.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are SecureOnlineDesktop, RedHat Inc., WorldDesk Ltd., SCC, and Netelligent Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: 'One of the major trends in the market is the increasing use of handheld devices. Several enterprises are adopting the ''bring your own device' (BYOD) policy for their employees, which increases the accessibility of cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) services through mobile devices. Thus, overall, the Global Cloud-based VDI market is expected to grow consistently and expand across various business sectors over the forecast period, supported to a considerable extent by several positive trends that are emerging in the market.'

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the growing need to reduce desktop infrastructure costs. The procurement of hardware infrastructure and the related maintenance costs increase the capital expenditure of enterprises. Cloud-based VDI reduces the capital and operational expenditure of enterprises by reducing powering and cooling expenditure and also by using fewer desktops to meet end-user needs.

Further, the report discusses that one of the major challenges in this market is the high initial capital investment required during the adoption of the technology.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
