Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

With a cloud service provider hosting your IT, there’s no need to struggle with server, hardware or software updates. Iserv’s VDI solution enables you to transition your entire desktop infrastructure into the Cloud, giving you a cost-effective way to manage your applications securely. Desktop as a Service or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is virtualization technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server in a data center.

There are two main approaches to VDI: persistent and nonpersistent. Persistent VDI provides each user with his or her own desktop image, which can be customized and saved for future use, much like a traditional physical desktop. Nonpersistent VDI provides a pool of uniform desktops that users can access when needed. Nonpersistent desktops revert to their original state each time the user logs out.

Benefits:

  • — IT departments may be able to extend the lifespan of otherwise obsolete PCs.
  • — When the time does come to purchase new devices, organizations can buy cheaper, less powerful machines.
  • — The endpoint may be a traditional PC, thin client or even a mobile device.
  • — Because all data lives in the data center, not on the endpoint, there are significant security benefits of VDI.
  • — IT has a minimal number of master images to maintain/secure, which is simpler than managing a complete desktop for each user.
  • — Other benefits of VDI include the ability to more easily support remote and mobile workers.

Drawbacks:

  • — VDI’s requires network/Internet connectivity.
