VDI refers to the use of virtual machines to provide and manage virtual desktops. These desktop environments are hosted on a centralized server which directs them to end-users on request. 

In VDI, a high-level supervisor program, called a hypervisor divides central servers into virtual machines that then act as the host for virtual desktops. Users can then access remotely from their devices. Access to these virtual desktops can be from any device or location since all processing is done on the host server. Users connect to their desktop through a software-based gateway that acts as a liaison between the user and the server.
