Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
VPLS offers VDI to advance your company
In the current age of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), users will be able to access their Virtual Desktops using their existing PCs, Macs, tablets, or phones. Not only does it allow the user to easily switch between operating environments, but it also eliminates the need to upgrade your workstation.
VDI also makes workstation deployments simpler since every attached workstation will be able to utilize the same image which will reduce administrative and support costs in the long run. Furthermore, this feature is convenient when one of your computers malfunctions since you will be able to access user data and applications at any other workstation. Also, instead of upgrading all of your office’s individual workstations, you can opt to purchase Thin Clients or Zero Clients that have no spinning disks and have a longer lifespan than traditional workstations.
VPLS offers two types of VDI services in the forms of On-Premise VDI and Cloud Hosted VDI commonly known as Desktop as a Service (DaaS). Our deployment of DaaS, however, is unique from other service providers in that we deploy the same technology as an On-Premise Solution in a Private Cloud environment dedicated for the customer. This increases the security for our Cloud Hosted VDI deployments and allows IT administrators greater control and visibility. We also recommend utilizing Nimble Storage for On-Premise VDI deployments to achieve high IOPS and fast performance. VPLS primarily uses Nimble Storage arrays for all of our workloads.
