Double Down On VDI By Providing Excellent End-User Search Experience

The benefits of virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) are clear – enabling secure and efficient BYOD, streamlining IT administration, and reducing operational costs. Key to any VDI deployment is end-user satisfaction and adoption.

Because best practice dictates disabling Windows indexing to ensure optimal resource performance, end-users tend to be frustrated by poor search experiences.

With X1 Search Virtual Edition™, it is possible to provide an excellent end-user search experience while deploying VDI in a way that conserves virtual computing resources. It creates a win-win solution because both IT and end-users are happy. As a result, VDI deployments gain traction and breadth.

That is why Gartner says, “Budget for a product like X1 to provide search capabilities to improve the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) user experience” in the April 2, 2015 report Cool Vendors in Endpoint Computing, 2015.
