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.
