The demand for desktop virtualisation is justified by the considerable effort and expense required to administer individual workstations. It is mainly companies with a decentralised organisation structure that are particularly interested in simplifying their desktop infrastructure, alongside guaranteeing data security when using decentralised desktop systems.
Using desktop virtualisation, IT administrators can make virtual desktops available in the data-processing centre on servers, and manage them centrally. There is no difference for users and they can continue to work as normal.
Central yet flexible
With a virtual desktop (VDI) – as with server virtualisation – the operating system and the applications are separated from the physical hardware in the data-processing centre/server room by a Hypervisor. In contrast to a shared desktop, every user has their own desktop.
A virtual desktop is primarily recommended for load-intensive applications, and applications that cannot run on a terminal server.
- It is possible to use mobile devices and bring-your-own devices (BYOD)
- Significantly reduced administration effort
- Fast response times in the event of changes (updates, migrations, etc.)
- High data security as no data leaves the data-processing centre
- Significantly increased desktop availability
- Lower energy consumption
Always available, wherever you are
As the requirements on the end device are minimal, almost all modern end devices can be used to access the virtual desktop: From smartphones, notebooks and tablets through to thin/zero clients. Even existing or older PC systems can still be used.
Wherever you are, you can securely access your personal desktop.
