Why virtualize your desktops?

Virtualization is a solution for improving the effectiveness, security, cost-efficiency 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.

  • 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

Benefits of virtual desktop infrastructure

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.

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 completed controlled.

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

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.

Flexibility

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.

Disaster Recovery

In the unfortunate event of your office environment being rendered unavailable, a virtual desktop infrastructure means that users can work seamlessly from another authorised device (such as a home PC, laptop, etc). This gives you an instant disaster recovery solution.

Lower Cost of Ownership and Extended Desktop Life

By sharing resources in a virtual desktop setup, the lifespan of a typical PC or laptop is extended by many years. As processing is performed in the cloud, the specification of hardware can be of a lower value.
