Virtual desktops and applications create a more flexible and secure business IT infrastructure. This allows you to quickly respond to changing business and end user needs, as well as reducing costs.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure for Remote Workers
Akita’s virtual desktop solution, powered by VMware’s Mobile Secure Desktop solution, allows older desktops and applications to be moved into the cloud and delivered as a managed cloud computing service.
Virtualization makes processes more efficient, your data more secure and your IT systems more cost effective.
By tying desktop environments to users and not devices, end users are free to access their data and applications from any qualified device whether in the office or half way around the world.
VDI for Branch Offices
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) 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
Key Advantages of Virtual Desktops
Desktop Management in VDI
Desktop virtualization allows you to have complete control and centralised 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.
Reduced desktop downtime and increased availability.
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.
In the unfortunate event of your office environment being 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 infrastructure, the lifespan of a typical desktop is extended by many years.
