VDI Recommendations

Hello, I am search for a VDI solution so we can "host internally".  I want to avoid replacing all the desktop hardware and I want to support a remote office.  The main application will NOT run over a WAN.

Is HyperV the best solution?

The main application will run on windows server 2016, with MS SQL and integrates to MS Office.

Hyper-V is not really a VDI solution it's a Hypervisor, which could be used to host a VDI solution.

Please consult this whitepaper, which compares and contrasts VDI solutions


It's four years old, but the VDI solutions, like XenDesktop, VMware Horizon View, and RemoteFX still exist.

Agree with Andrew.  And to add, VDI is very expensive.  Depending on the application, you might find Remote Desktop Services (RDS, formerly known as Terminal Services) a MUCH less expensive solution.
