The concept behind server virtualization is a specific example of the same concepts that led to the development of time-sharing and multiprogramming. Generally, client users tend to ask for computer resources in a “bursty” fashion, demanding fast-as-possible response to requests, but then entering long periods of no activity while they examine the results. During these idle periods, the computer’s resources can be used to service requests from other clients. This model makes more efficient use of the computer’s resources, reducing the time the system is idle, regardless of user patterns. It also allows the users to share resources Desktop virtualization. Virtual desktop infrastructure, sometimes referred to as virtual desktop interface (VDI) is the server computing model enabling desktop virtualization, encompassing the hardware and software systems required to support the virtualized environment.

Many enterprise-level implementations of this technology store the resulting “virtualized” desktop on a remote central server, instead of on the local storage of a remote client; thus, when users work from their local machine, all of the programs, applications, processes, and data used are kept on the server and run centrally. This allows users to run an operating system and execute applications from a smart phone or thin client which exceed the user hardware’s ability to run.
