Vritual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI’s are desktops that are stored on servers often centralized on premise or in data centers. This technology has a few very strategic advantages over a traditional desktop and server infrastructure.
Problem, Desktops are not always there for my employees - Centralized VDI desktops can be highly available. High availability means you have access to that device 99.99% of the time almost no standard desktop will meet this expectation. They will get a bad Windows update or a virus minor or major or the user will make a mistake or a bad uninstall or even just to upgrade and update business applications all cost your employees time. Think of what an hour or a day of lost productivity out of your best worker costs you? All desktop hard drives have a mean time before failure of 3-5 years. You are buying something that will break and cost you money.
VDI is the solution because every time you log out the virtual desktop you were workign on is destroyed and when you log in you get Windows 7 like its first day. Any bad installs, or viruses are instantly gone. On top of that your desktop is on redundant server grade hardware.
Problem: Upgrades cost me more time and more money. To install that new program update on 50 machines takes our staff or consultants a whole evening or weekend. Costing time and money
VDI Solution: The update is applied to the template, tested live to ensure it works. When confirmed that it works its deployed as people log out and back in their new desktop will have the updated program. 1 update regardless of the number of desktops.
