The Marine Corps has issued a request for information for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

The Marines are looking for industry input on the cost and challenges of installing VDI at Marine Corps garrison classified networks. A VDI enables remote access to a server-hosted desktop operating environment.

The specifications, issued by the product manager, Marine Corps Network and Infrastructure Services at Marine Corps Systems Command, calls for a system that can interoperate with the existing USMC defense in depth architecture, as well as accept existing authentication methods such as Common Access Card and DoD Secure Token.

The Marines also want software that can load in less than 10 seconds, and that can support 500 to 2,000 users at each regional site. There will be four regional sites as well as two labs, one for development and one for certification.
