The Oracle data sheet on Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure describes the three-tiered solution (client, session and virtual desktop), which prevents the end user from connecting directly to the corporate data center. Users can deploy the Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure on multiple servers linked together into a failover group whose purpose is to protect against outages. The Oracle VDI offers a broad range of devices, operating systems, and virtualization platforms and enables centralized management of desktop services. Existing PCs can be leveraged as clients, reducing the requirement to upgrade hardware and maximizing the lifespan of PCs, according to Oracle.
