A new, somewhat independent, survey report is released by VIBriefing today. The survey is sponsored by Virsto Software, who makes storage and VDI solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V (not yet supporting Citrix, but this is announced that they will).

According to the survey, 65% of respondents use VMware as their hypervisor for their VDI projects, versus 12% using Citrix and 8% using Hyper-V. That seems like a huge lead for VMware, which somewhat surprises me as Citrix originally was/is the leader in the Desktop space.

According to the survey, 46% of VDI projects are stalled due to cost and performance issues. I guess after so many years of VDI software development, no solution on the market offers an easy answer :-(
