Virtual Desktops

About Desktop Virtualisation

Overview

Citrix ResellerVirtual desktop infrastructure or VDI is a computing model that adds a layer of virtualization between the server and the desktop PCs. By installing this virtualisation in place of a more traditional operating system, network administrators can provide end users with ‘access anywhere’ capabilities and a familiar desktop experience, while simultaneously heightening data security throughout the organisation. Cloud Solutions specialise in providing Citrix VDI-in-a-Box, as well as Microsoft Remote Desktops. Both solutions can be installed on premise and hosted in a private cloud.

How it works

With VDI, the end-user experience remains familiar. Their desktop looks just like their desktop and their thin client device performs just like the desktop PC they’ve grown comfortable with and accustomed to. With virtual desktop infrastructure, there are no expensive training seminars to host and no increase in tech support issues or calls. End-user satisfaction is actually increased because they have greater control over the applications and settings that their work requires.

Benefits of VDI
  • Desktops can be set up in minutes, not hours. Easy to scale.
  • Thin client devices are cheaper, more energy efficient and longer lasting than traditional desktop computers
  • IT costs are reduced due to a fewer tech support issues
  • Compatibility issues, especially with single-user software, are lessened
  • Data security is increased
  • Desktops accessible from anywhere
  • Support for private cloud or on premise server hosting
  • Upgrades of software or patches only required on the server
  • End user support easier as shared desktop possible
  • Manage all remote branches
