      Virtualization is a solution for improving the effectiveness of your IT systems.

      By tying desktop environments to users – not devices – users are free to access their data and applications from any qualified device whether in the office or halfway around the world.

      Virtual desktop infrastructure allows for a consistent and scalable desktop service to be delivered to remote and branch office workers.

      Using a wide area network, branch office desktops maximise uptimes, simplifies remote desktop management and reduces the costs as a result:

      VDI can help organisations to:

      • Provide consistent high-performance desktop experiences
      • Simplify desktop IT management and accelerate provisioning of remote desktops
      • Ensure high availability
      • Reduce desktop operating costs and travel to branch offices

      Extended Desktop Life

      By sharing resources in a virtual desktop setup, the lifespan of a typical PC or laptop is extended by many years.

      Desktop Management In VDI

      Desktop virtualization allows you to have complete control and management of all desktops.

      Deployment of virtual desktops, administration, and desktop management is quick and easy, saving a tremendous amount of time and saving you money.

      Lower Cost Of Ownership

      As processing is performed in the cloud, the specification of hardware can be of a lower value.

      Disaster Recovery

      In the unfortunate event of your office environment being rendered unavailable, a virtual desktop infrastructure means that users can continue to work seamlessly.

      This can be done from another authorised device (such as a home PC, laptop, etc), giving you an instant disaster recovery solution to keep your operations running smoothly.

      High Availability

      Reduced desktop downtime and increased availability. Akita’s cloud infrastructure runs with a 99.9% uptime, meaning your desktop is always available.

      Running a desktop from the cloud means that all updates can be managed centrally, meaning required updates can be scheduled to take place out-of-work hours – not when you’re in the middle of a meeting.


      Prior to VDI, to roll out new software to specific users, you would have to look at their equipment and possibly upgrade hardware such as RAM. With a virtual desktop environment, you simply push out an image from a central location to the users in question. Additionally, with a virtual desktop infrastructure, you have the ability to roll back desktops to different states.

      Security In VDI

      Security is a key advantage of VDI. Within a virtualised desktop environment, you can have greater control of how desktops are secured. Images can be locked down from external devices and what is saved to the desktop can be completely controlled.

      As sensitive data is stored on a server, your information is protected if a device is lost or stolen.

      Virtual Desktop Infrastructure FAQ

      Can A VDI Service Be Integrated With Existing IT Infrastructure And Applications?

      Yes. A virtual desktop infrastructure solution can be the central part of a full cloud operations solution, but can also exist as a hybrid cloud solution should an organisation wish to retain some of its operations on physical servers. Of all cloud services, VDI is one the most efficient for organisations in terms of simplicity of management.

      Does Your VDI Service Handle Support, Updates And Patch Management?

      By choosing Akita to host your virtual desktop infrastructure, you’ll take away the stress of managing your infrastructure. Our IT infrastructure engineers will monitor the performance of your environment and can undertake all patching and security updates.

      They can also provision new virtual desktop instances on request.

      How Can VDI Enhance Disaster Recovery And Business Continuity Capabilities?

      Virtual desktop infrastructure can centralise the management of all desktops, making them easier to protect, update and backup.

      This also simplifies roll out to users in the case of a disaster. Users simply need a device and access to the internet to continue working, so can be working again from anywhere in minutes.

      How Secure Is Your VDI Service?

      Akita’s VDI service operates from our two secure data centre presences that use advanced threat protection. Users’ virtual desktops then communicate with this environment via a secure VPN, ensuring that data in transit remains secure regardless of the connection.

      Can Your VDI Service Be Accessed By Mobile Devices?

      Yes, VDI can support remote access from mobile devices )provided the device has enough processing power). With VDI, users can connect to their virtual desktops from remote locations using various devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones. This flexibility allows users to access their desktop environment and applications from anywhere with an internet connection, simplifying remote working and enhancing general mobility.

      How Can A VDI Setup Save My Organisation Money?

      A virtual desktop infrastructure solution reduces IT spend in a number of ways. As processing takes place in the cloud, laptops can be of a lower specification reducing hardware costs. Centralised management in a VDI environment reduces time spent updating individual PCs, increasing productivity. VDIs also make use of centralised software licensing, reducing the spend on individual software licences. And security is also handled by the cloud provider, meaning (depending on your setup) there’s less need to invest in security measures.
