Virtual desktops enable users to access a centrally-managed desktop from a remote session from anywhere through any device. This will be a possibility so long as you have an internet connection. This technology uses a centralized server to run a virtual machine that hosts a desktop operating system. This system would allow employees to access data securely and quickly while they are in the office, on the road, or even across town because they would be able to do this through any device.
Virtual desktops ensure continuous operations by securely storing confidential and proprietary information in the data center, which can only be viewed from the Virtual Desktop. Security policies would also provide granular access control to limit the movement of data in and out of your corporate network. Because virtual desktops reside in the data center, access to application infrastructure would happen on ultra-low latency and high bandwidth core network, which would result in maximum application performance and end-user experience.
There are so many benefits to virtual desktops, including the reduction of total costs of ownership of computers, better efficiency, and increased employee satisfaction. Your company would also have greater security over company data and intellectual property. You will be able to control where data is stored, how it is accessed, and by whom, so your operations would run smoothly as you would not need to update hundreds of laptops or desktops and can simply update the application in the data center, making the process of updating computing applications a lot easier.
Users will enjoy working this way because they will be able to choose how they work as VDI will provide access to systems and files from anywhere they want to work. If your hardware were to crash, you would be able to log into your session from another device, and you would be right back to where you left off as your session would reside in a data center and not on a specific laptop or desktop, or tablet.
If your employees cannot access your office or their primary device for any reason, virtual desktop infrastructure would allow them to use any secondary device from any location with internet access so that they can continue working. Additionally, this infrastructure will also keep all user data centrally stored and protected by default, so it’s a sure way of guaranteeing continuous business operations.
Anything from a fire in your building to a rodent infestation or even construction can affect your business and cause loss of access to your office. However, with virtual desktops, you will not have to worry about any of this as you would still be able to maintain operations, and business would be able to continue as usual. Unforeseen circumstances can happen, but your business would not suffer if you are using the virtual desktop infrastructure.
