Top 5 VDI Blogs

VDI vendors are in a frenetic race to bite as much as they can from this 50 million users market with potential revenue of $65.7 billion by 2013 according to another Gartner research from 2009.

However, despite the huge numbers I don’t see many bloggers acting on the VDI space. Maybe it’s because VDI is still a recent technology and is yet to be widely adopted, or maybe it’s because of the complexity, involving loads more than just virtualisation knowledge. Have you seen Steve Chamber VDI Iceberg?VDI Iceberg

 

 

The list is my personal preference with the blogs I like the most and therefore are ranked in my Top 5.

I would also recommend accessing vendor’s Community Forums where you will find plenty of discussions and technical information.
