          Lifecycle Solutions: Virtual Desktop

          Making the Move to VDI

          Desktop Management Made Easy

          Virtualization has had a dramatic effect on the way data centers operate. And now you can apply this same cost-cutting technology your employees’ PCs. When reducing operating and capital expenses is a priority, there is never been a better to time to discover how Virtual Desktop technology can drive down the costs of managing and maintaining your desktop infrastructure.

          VDI begins by separating users from their PCs’ data. While that may seem frightening, VDI also allows a business to provision new PCs instantly, nearly eliminate desk-side visits, and work towards a zero downtime goal. Virtualization allows us to put the user, rather than the hardware, at the center of the IT process. Much like server virtualization, VDI simplifies complexity involved with data access and storage while adding application server-like attributes that enable users to quickly access the applications they need.

          In the old IT model, nearly all of your employees would require a fully optioned PC which would run underutilized most—if not all—of the time. With VDI, provisioning happens at the server level and equates to issuing another client PC to your pool of users. VDI also simplifies patching and upgrading PCs since all patches applied to the VM in turn affect all the PC clients. Security also becomes easier. Since each user operates in their own sandbox, separate from its host, malware and viruses have limited impact on operations as a whole.
