Are you Ready for Virtual Desktops (VDI)?

How much is VDI going to cost?  Will virtual desktop performance be acceptable?  What hardware will we need?  How many desktop images will we have to support?  Can we afford it?

These are just some of the questions we hear from companies as they begin to explore virtual desktops for their organization and Whitehat has developed our Desktop Virtualization Assessment to answer these questions and more before the first dollar is spent of desktop virtualization infrastructure. 

The process of virtualizing desktops is a complex undertaking that involves many disciplines. Desktop Virtualization adoption has been limited by slow planning cycles and manual needs assessment processes that do not do a sufficient job of identifying all of the risks or the overall "mystery" in completing a successful VDI project.

Whitehat’s Virtual Desktop (VDI) Readiness Assessment determines your organizations’ VDI readiness across the 11 different areas that you need to see and understand before you determine your VDI project budget or your VDI project begins.

The Virtual Desktop (VDI) Readiness Assessment addresses these important areas:

  • VDI Capacity Planningvirtual desktops vdi readiness assessment
  • Virtualization Modeling
  • Predictive Analysis
  • Migration Planning
  • Storage throughput
  • Space Planning
  • Power Planning
  • Firewall and Latency Analysis
  • User and Application Behavior Analysis
  • Pooled Desktop/image Planning
  • Application Virtualization Compatibility Analysis


Our interactive assessment involves meetings with stakeholders and end users to review and determine optimal candidates for VDI, and what candidates might be more suited to other forms of desktop and application delivery.

This Virtual Desktop (VDI) Readiness Assessment includes a written report detailing the state of readiness and steps necessary to move forward with a VDI initiative complete with image assessment, host server VM density and hardware requirements.
