From difficult to simple
Operating a large desktop environment bogs down your company resources. You may not have identical configurations or operating systems across your network, which makes IT management tricky.
But there’s good news — it doesn’t have to be complicated. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) simplifies it by centralizing patching, maintenance, and management through a streamlined interface.
What do you get with VDI?
- A simplified, software-defined management environment for cost reduction and time savings.
- Around-the-clock monitoring and scanning of your entire infrastructure for virus protection and overall uptime.
- Hardware-agnostic systems that work with any device to provide unparalleled flexibility and management capabilities.
Why Virtual Desktop Infrastructure?
Simply put, VDI solutions give you the freedom to run your business technology the way you want. VDI gives you more control over every connected device. Plus, it’s scalable and adaptable. You can evolve your infrastructure to match the speed of your business.
VDI takes far fewer resources to manage than the traditional desktop infrastructure. Simplified cloud management lets you focus your IT resources on other areas of your business.
With virtual desktop infrastructures, you can unlock the freedom of mobility for your business. Connect to your data from anywhere, anytime, and from any device.
Proactive data monitoring and management allow for problem resolution before it affects your work. Stay efficient and on-task without worrying about impending interruptions.
How does VDI work?
Virtual desktop infrastructure might be hard to understand if you aren’t in the IT world, which is why it’s so important to have an IT team that can handle it for you. Desktop virtualization is a software technology that can separate the desktop environment and the associated application software from the physical device used to access it. In this way, users can access their virtual desktop from any device or location.
In VDI, a hypervisor segments servers into virtual machines that in turn host virtual desktops, which users can access remotely from the device they’re using. All processing is done on the host server. VDI is an excellent tool for companies that have employees working remotely or traveling often. With VDI, employees can still access their desktops even when they’re not in the office.
Before you can reap the benefits of VDI, we’ll need to migrate your current desktop infrastructure. We’ll start by analyzing your existing network, getting a read on your average input and output requirements, and selecting the best storage options for you. Once you’ve migrated over, we’ll configure and optimize your virtual infrastructure to maximize your work efficiency.
Advantages of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
There are many benefits to using virtual desktop infrastructure as another business tool for your company. With an experienced IT team like Total IT, you can be set up with VDI in no time. Our friendly technology experts will help you migrate your infrastructure and ensure your employees feel comfortable using VDI. Listed below are just a few of the advantages your business will soon be enjoying, thanks to virtual desktop infrastructure.
When you are all set up with VDI, your employees will be able to access their work desktops from anywhere. They can be productive whether they’re in the office, traveling, or working from home. It also saves on costs since you won’t have to purchase multiple licenses for employees with a desktop and laptop.
Uniformity and Control
With virtual desktop infrastructure, the desktop image is shared by all or almost everyone. You will control what is available, what can be placed where, and what can be installed. Having this much control is more complicated on individual machines, where users have more control.
Security and Reliability
Reduce maintenance costs and keep an eye on security with virtual desktop infrastructure. You will only have one central point that needs upgrading, patching, and maintenance with VDI. Thankfully, having a dedicated tech team like Total IT means you won’t have to worry about anything. We will ensure your VDI is running smoothly and securely.
Ability to Switch Environments
Some workplaces have employees who need multiple environments or two different versions of Windows, for example. Using VDI won’t hinder their ability to switch between the two settings. The virtual desktop infrastructure allows you to use both so that employees can continue being productive across environments.
