VDI Boot Storm

Definition - What does VDI Boot Storm mean?

A VDI boot storm is the degradation of service that occurs when too many end users boot up at the same time. This results in the overwhelming of the network with too many data requests.

Techopedia explains VDI Boot Storm

A VDI boot storm is a straightforward problem. Virtual desktop workloads depend on the working hours of employees. In a typical office environment, workers are logged in between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. each workday. The overall usage is not more than the server can handle. However, a boot storm occurs when a lot of virtual desktops are booted up during short window of time, say between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. This overwhelms the system storage and users end up facing the inability to access the system.
