Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
The CCSE Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environment is virtualization technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server in our data center. CCSE offers two types of VDI environments: persistent and nonpersistent. Persistent VDI (assigned based on class) provides each user with his or her own desktop image, which can be customized and saved for future use, much like a traditional physical desktop. Nonpersistent VDI (CCSE Standard) provides a pool of uniform desktops that users can access when needed. Nonpersistent desktops revert to their original state each time the user logs out.
