What are the advantages to a virtual desktop?
If you have any plans to let your employees work from anywhere or if you have a need to consolidate and centralize the computers so IT has an easier time managing computers and all of the maintenance behind it; then your company should be considering virtual desktop infrastructure.
Where does the data go?
Virtual desktop infrastructure is another way for your company to store data and have your employees access this data from anywhere they want to. Your employees can access work information from their phone, computers, laptops, tablets, or a thin client or zero client. Rather than have the information on a computer at the employee’s desk the information and data reside on a computer in the cloud or data center. The benefit of having the work hosted in a cloud or data center is that the files can be access any time and anywhere in the world. The benefits include increased productivity and up-to-date changes and updates. VDI allows workers to collaborate more efficiently. At ClearCube it doesn’t matter to us if you want to use the cloud, your own data center or private cloud, or a combination of both for a hybrid opportunity. What we do is help you with your endpoint device solutions that your employees are using.
Work From Anywhere, Anytime, with Anyone
There are a lot of ‘what if’ situations that virtual desktops can help you with. What if there is a last minute presentation tweak that needs to be corrected? What if you have a contractor that you are worried will steal proprietary information? What if you have an employee that needs to work from home? What if you would like to expand your team to be global? What if you want multiple locations?
All of this is possible with laptops and browser based platforms but VDI goes the extra step and protects the endpoint device and the connection protocol. Laptops are vulnerable to theft or ineffective backup strategies and updates. A user can push off a critical update and make a system vulnerable. Drivers for hardware or firmware updates can take a long time. There is also wear and tear on devices that eventually an employee needs to swap out for a new device and the process to move information can be frustrating. There is also the possibility of exposed networks when you log in from home, from a coffee shop, or from wherever an employee is choosing to do work. With virtual desktops the data is backed up continuously by your administrator and the endpoint device does not carry the data or information so theft is not a problem.
