Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) enables organizations to provide virtual desktops to their employees through a secure network with various endpoint devices. Its benefits include enhanced user mobility, simplified IT management, and improved security. A VDI deployment requires careful planning, however, and can seem daunting at first due to its complexity.

Alibaba Cloud allows you to deploy multiple Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances on a dedicated host. You can run desktop images on ECS instances and deliver virtual desktops to end users over a secure network on request.
