VDI‑in‑a‑Box is an easy, affordable, all-in-one desktop virtualization solution that makes the benefits of desktop virtualization available to every business with emphasis on SMB. VDI‑in‑a‑Box provides built-in high-availability and eliminates over 60 percent of traditional VDI infrastructure—including management servers and shared storage (SANs) – by creating a grid of off-the-shelf servers using local storage. The solution enables administrators to rapidly deliver centrally-managed personalized virtual desktops to any user, on any device with the same rich high-definition end-user experience as our enterprise class Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, formerly XenApp and XenDesktop - all for less than the cost of PCs. With VDI‑in‑a‑Box, you can give your workers the freedom to work from anywhere while instantly lowering costs and improving security.

Validated SMB solutions from Citrix emphasize three areas of desktop virtualization:  Easy to adopt and deploy, lower cost per desktop, and lower cost of acquisition.  This allows for scalability through acquiring additional hardware blocks of modest to small size, allowing for simple scalability expansions of 50 to 100 users at a time.

Citrix SMB solutions always contain either Citrix VIB or Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops based technologies, and steers away from complex hardware solutions like Fiber Channel SAN, and often emphasize easy to obtain and configure hardware.
