This sort of centralized troubleshooting helps maintain lean IT operations. zDesk, is our end-to-end integrated solution for a fully functional VDI.
The virtual desktop infrastructure software enables users to set up and design their virtual desktop infrastructure in any way they want, permitting them to use zero clients, thin clients, or a combination of both. Zero clients and thin clients are computing solutions and endpoint devices used for connecting to remote machines. Hypervisors are NOT the only technology that enables desktop virtualization. You must consider hardware, software, storage, network, security, and access device proliferation. Smart phones, tablets, and net books are driving a trend of consumers\workers going out and purchasing their own access devices with the expectation that their work IT organization will support the device.
VDI requires people with specific skills to design and optimize the system. Ultimately, Spruijt explained, VDI can stream desktops and applications to anybody who needs them, but it doesn’t necessarily rely on public cloud services like DaaS does. Manage the virtual desktop telework and remote agent environment.
Much of VDI today is seen in industries such as financial services, education, medical/health (e.g. hospitals and clinics) care and government. For example, VDI is used for training students on how to use technology. In medicine, caregivers use tablets and card-scanning technology at kiosks allowing them to carry their virtual desktop, data, and applications with them as they move from patient to patient.
Any application can be set as a global application to run on every desktop. Security – Today, security has become a serious concern for businesses. With VDI, tracking external devices becomes much more manageable. Using a central database with centralised storage makes it more secure. No individual device holds / stores data and thus the company data is more secure and under central supervision. You don’t risk having files in various devices, and there is the added advantage of not losing data if anything happens to individual devices or desktops. Right from individual files to the various applications that are installed, it is easier to manage them centrally and thus avoid all the time engineers usually take to locate individual problems.
U.S. federal government is another popular vertical due to the inherent consistency and standardization qualities of VDI. However, users should not make the mistake of thinking that virtual desktop offers the same major automatic advantages as virtualizing servers and storage. As the experts who presented at the meeting made clear, virtual desktops are an entirely different animal than virtualized data centers, both in the technical and the financial sense. VDI is a more hands-on application streaming tool for IT professionals. Typically, VDI is used in on-premises and hybrid cloud environments that require more specialized or customized configurations.
You can give a responsibility shortcut keys to change between these desktops. Different applications or programs can be opened on different virtual desktops.
zDesk combines the benefits of VDI and Desktop-as-a-Service and can be hosted either on-premise or on the cloud. The simplicity of the single-vendor solution enabled by hyper-converged and software-defined infrastructure technologies defies the rapid deployability, scalability and robust security of the virtual desktops.

Organize and support thin client technology, vendor management, deployment and support for business partners regardless of location in and outside the state of Maryland. RES Workspace Manager is a lightweight platform that allows you to manage every user’s workspace from a single console by separating it from the underlying infrastructure. As a result, changes to the infrastructure will not impact the user’s workspace. Desktop services like application, printers and data should be delivered based on the user’s situation or “context.” Whenever that context changes, the workspaces should dynamically adapt to that change as well. That means the user’s identity, location, device and moment in time should be the principles that you use to govern users’ access to IT services. Remoting solutions such as virtual desktops always need to include threat modeling.
The big challenge here is supporting ANY device with ANY operating system. Bandwidth; multi-media feature parity in delivery protocols and core OS platform support of applications still must be considered. Though many organizations forego desktop backup or use network shares, they still must often re-image the desktop when it fails – a time-consuming and disruptive process. With VDI, data center-class backup technology can be applied to virtual desktop images thereby providing a high quality backup of both system and data files. Moreover, With VDI and snapshot point-in-time copies, desktops can be rolled back to different states in time. This is a great feature, and provides great flexibility to end users.
