VMware Leads In Desktop Virtualization in India

VMware led the market with a share of 62.9 percent in the first half of 2013

VMware has been recognized as a leader in India in the latest IDC Asia/Pacific Centralized Virtual Desktop Market Analysis. According to IDC, VMware led the market with a share of 62.9 percent of the Centralized Virtual Desktop (CVD), or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), market in India during the first half of 2013.

IDC also estimates that the Centralized Virtual Desktop (CVD) market in India will grow at a CAGR of 37.8% to US $32.14 million by 2017[1]. Desktop virtualization enables organizations to adopt a user-centric, flexible approach to computing. By decoupling applications, data and operating systems from endpoints- and by moving these components into the data center, they can be centrally managed. In addition, desktop and application virtualization offers IT a more streamlined and secured way to manage users, and provide agile, on-demand desktop services.

According to the report, while security remains a key driver for the adoption of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) in India, other factors, such as flexibility/mobility, operational cost reduction, management efficiency and longer refresh cycles are other major considerations for customers to deploy VDI in India. Most VDI opportunities occur during refresh cycles and software updates.

T Srinivasan, MD, VMware India & SAARC, said, “Being recognized by IDC as a leader in VDI validates our End-User Computing strategy in India, and signals the ability of VMware to transform workforce mobility.

IDC predicts that the IT-enabled Services (ITeS) and the banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sectors will drive the demand for VDI in India over the next few years. These sectors are good examples where data management, storage and data security are of the utmost importance and where VDI can play a key role in managing data more efficiently and provide flexibility to employees.
