Virtual Client Computing Segmentation

Solution {Virtual User Sessions (VUS), Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Terminal Services}

The virtual user sessions (VUS) segment in the virtual client computing market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 45% in the coming years owing to the owing to growing adoption of VUS desktops. Session-based desktop software, or Virtual User Session (VUS), operates on servers and generates a virtualized operating system user interface that may be distributed to non-native environments and can stream a single program to almost any device, independent of platform. Moreover, it is a software solution that enables numerous users to view a single program at once and is an advanced server-based computing platform that can accommodate numerous users running the same operating system by creating a shared environment. Organizations typically utilize VUS desktops to provide remote access to applications and data in a regulated and centralized environment and with the use of virtual client computing users can access their system from different locations which provides flexibility.

Additionally, the term virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) refers to a technology that hosts desktop environments on a central server allows users to access their desktops from any location, and offers cloud-based or on-premises virtual desktop hosting.
