Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), sometimes called a cloud desktop service, is a way to host a desktop operating system on a centralized server typically located offsite in a data center. The user simply logs in using a PC, tablet or even a smartphone. If you’re wondering whether VDI* is right for you, there are several benefits to consider.
Benefits of Using a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
1. Lower Cost
Because the processing power happens at the remote server, each user does not need to have an ultra-modern computer with all the latest upgrades to have an excellent experience. Older devices will work just fine.
2. Greater Security
With a cloud desktop service, all data resides on a server in a data center, not on a laptop or computer, which can be stolen or damaged. When it’s time to update security software or implement new protocols, there’s no need for an IT employee to travel from desk to desk – it can all be implemented at the server. Additionally, you’ll never have to worry about natural disasters wiping out your data; it’s all secure in the cloud.
3. Full Desktop Experience
Your users will not have to deal with the hassle of a frustrating transition. Cloud desktop service users will be presented with a regular desktop with all data and applications ready to use – just like they’re used to. That makes the switch to VDI seamless for all users.
Remote users, telecommuters, frequent travelers, and anyone who bounces between them will have complete access to everything needed to get the job done from anywhere with an internet connection. From shared files to company apps, your employees are free to work in a way that is convenient for everyone.
