Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives, mobility and the end of Windows XP are driving organizations to reevaluate their end user computing strategies. Virtual desktop (VDI) technology promised to deliver a lot of things. Unfortunately, it has failed to deliver for many users due to high cost and complexity. Virtual desktop technology requires a lot of new physical data center infrastructure and software just to deliver virtual desktops. Who wants to build more data center infrastructure in today’s environment? Let someone else take care of that.
What you really need is to deploy Windows desktops and applications as a cloud service!
With virtual desktops and applications in the cloud, you get all the benefits of desktop virtualization without the headaches. Even better, you can leave the hardware, software, SLA’s and performance worries to the Cloud Provider. Optimal performance is maintained because you’re leveraging a global network of data centers.
Desktops and apps as a cloud service make desktop virtualization:
- Easier to deploy
- Less expensive to manage and maintain
- Higher performing
- More flexible
- And of course, more secure
The Cloud Makes the Complex Easy
