Virtualization offers unmatched desktop flexibility and agility, maximizes storage and efficiency, and provides backup and restoration abilities not available in the standard computing model. It has also proven to deliver significant operational cost savings, and a secure and compliant desktop.
Advantages of Desktop Virtualization
By balancing your needs, and those of your IT support staff, desktop virtualization enables you to:
By using desktop virtualization technologies, our customers typically see a dramatic reduction in end-user downtime caused by PC issues. The centralization of desktop technologies also decreases the burden on support staff by increasing efficiency and accessibility of the desktop environment.
- Improve data security
- Enforce corporate policies and remain compliant with all standard industry regulations
- Reduce operational costs
- Enable end-user data backup and restoration
- Centralize and simplify patch and update management
- Reduce the cost and complexity of PC replacements/user migration
For example, in a traditional environment, deploying a new application to thousands of end users may take 12-24 months to complete. The same deployment can be reduced to only one weekend when desktop virtualization is in place.
In many cases, our desktop virtualization customers see a return on their investment in as few as 12-18 months.
Business ContinuityAs an added benefit, desktop virtualization technology enables you to encapsulate an operating system, applications and any relevant data into the equivalent of a file, which can then easily be sent to an offsite storage facility for backup.
In the event of a disaster, this file can be called up and implemented almost immediately, shortening any downtime from days to hours, or even minutes. In addition, it offers the opportunity to secure and backup relevant end-user data in the same manner as any virtualized server to improve consistency.
In traditional computing environments, if an end user's machine dies, it can take hours to regain productivity. A virtual desktop environment would enable that user to simply start working immediately on another device, from which he or she could access the exact same information that may have otherwise been lost.
