There's a real battle in the virtualization market as VMware positions itself as cloud computing's operating system.

Suppliers have long suggested that enterprises use VDI to simplify administration, improve security, and reduce costs, using an older PC or a thin client as the endpoint. Samsung's new NX-N2 is designed to address that need while eliminating the need for software updates and device administration.
VDI offers the promise of simplifying the lives of IT administrators while still addressing the needs of users of Windows desktops, though it hasn't always lived up to that promise. VMware just launched Horizon 6.0 to simplify the use of VDI.
