What is the difference between thin client and VDI?

Thin and Zero Clients also have different connection types. Whereas the Thin Client will contain multiple VDI connection types, managed with a central utility, the Zero Client runs with one or two connection types (VMware or Citrix typically) which can be centrally managed (although this isn’t necessary).

Is VDI thin client?

Thin clients occur as components of a broader computing infrastructure, where many clients share their computations with a server or server farm. The server-side infrastructure uses cloud computing software such as application virtualization, hosted shared desktop (HSD) or desktop virtualization (VDI).
