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.
