Application and desktop virtualization

An application or an entire desktop permanently safe in a data centre or cloud that can be accessed from anywhere, from any device - that's what application and desktop virtualisation technology, or VDI for short, can deliver.

VDI as a useful helper in various situations

A virtual machine running in an organization's data centre or cloud on one side. And on the other, a user accessing it remotely. What is this good for?
We get three independencies:
  • independence from the end device the user is using,
  • independence of the location from which the user works,
  • independence from the operating system of the end device.
These features make it easy to tackle typical scenarios such as working from home, whether from a company laptop or a user-owned PC or tablet. But in addition, secure access for external contractors working remotely. And from devices that use different operating systems (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, ChromeOS), all you need is a web browser to connect. Or a branch office where only endpoint devices are desirable and all applications and services run elsewhere - in the cloud or in the organization's data centre.

Furthermore, situations where sensitive data needs to be protected. It is typical for VDI that data resides outside the endpoint device, even when the user is actively working with it. This ensures that data is not lost if the endpoint device is lost, stolen or malfunctions.
 

Benefits

  • Applications and data do not leave the data centre, even during processing
  • Loss, damage or theft of endpoint equipment will not cause data loss
  • Windows apps can be used seamlessly on Android, macOS and other devices
  • Same work environment, desktop, apps when working in the office, from home or on the go
  • Accelerate management - a virtual machine for a new employee is ready in minutes

Easy user management with VDI

An integral part of VDI are tools that can create a virtual machine or application in an automated and very rapid way. The user can have a working environment ready in minutes, without having to wait for an extended period to install the operating system and individual applications. Similarly, quick restoration of the virtual machine to its original state is possible if something unexpectedly malfunctions.

IT administrators get a one-stop user environment and application management tool that enables:
  • reduction of downtime in case of client equipment failure,
  • fast migration to new versions of operating systems and applications,
  • ability to increase workstation performance (dynamically adjust virtual HW configuration),
  • easy delivery of specific applications to specific groups of users.

The most widely used products for VDI

Certified system specialists use their experience, as well as best practices established by manufacturers, to design and implement solutions optimized to meet the operational and availability requirements of all types of VDI customers. They can deploy, advise, consult and assist with the most typical VDI products available on the market:
  • VMware Horizon,
  • Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD),
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS).
  • Azure Virtual Desktop.
In addition to environmental documentation, the projects also include training for the customer's employees. If the customer already operates a VDI infrastructure, the project may also include a health check. Where performance issues arise, a configuration check can be performed and then the setup enhanced for optimum system performance.
 

Thin client = endpoint device for better security and management

To take VDI infrastructure to the "next level" and get the maximum benefits from its deployment? A thin client may be the right solution. A thin client is a device that is resistant to unwanted changes in settings by the user, locked to viruses and other security threats, small in size, lightweight, without spinning parts, excellent low power consumption and long lifetime, and also cheaper in price compared to traditional PCs or laptops.

The maintenance of these devices is minimal - it usually consists of updating the "firmware" once a year to numerous amounts of years ahead. Passive cooling and the absence of moving parts give the advantage of low power consumption with virtually zero noise. It is the noiselessness, low thermal radiation and small dimensions that make thin clients suitable for places such as classrooms, call centres, control rooms, point of sale, in short, wherever ergonomics of the working environment is a priority.
