VDI Totem

We were talking about our growing Citrix infrastructure and started getting carried away.

“Can I run VMware in my VDI?”

“Yeah — can I host a bunch of virtual machines from one big VDI that I could access from anywhere?”

“And possibly run a whole Citrix cluster on a few dozen virtual machines, all hosted entirely within one VDI?  We could virtualize our Citrix virtualization desktop infrastructure!”

“No.  I don’t think so.  Pretty soon it would get so confusing that you wouldn’t know what was real anymore without having a little spinny-top to check.”

(It’s a shame we dropped it.  I think we were on to something.  If I could only find a way to plant the idea and its feasibility somewhere deep in their subconscious….)
