Desktop as a Service/Virtual Desktop Infrastructure: The Cloud Comes to the Desktop
Virtualization and cloud services have made major inroads into the enterprise server market over the last few years, and the impact has been significant.

To be sure, there's still quite a bit of room growth even now - while it's true that many organizations have implemented virtualization to some degree, that doesn't mean they've moved more than a small fraction of their environment to the cloud. That said, the enterprise shift to the cloud is clearly underway.
