Virtual Desktop Environment

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is a virtualization solution that provides and manages virtual desktops via virtual machines. VDI hosts desktop environments on a centralised server and makes them available to end users on demand. endpoint device that connects to the network (laptop, tablet, and so on). Security and configuration management are two other advantages of the VDI solution. Because all data is stored in the data centre, the loss of an endpoint device reduces the exposure of data that is not stored on the device. A VDI instance provides strict controls to eliminate deviation from organisational standards in environments with standardised desktop configurations that do not need to be customised for each user.

Benefits of VDI

  • Lower administrative and support costs- Users only require access to the operating system (OS) and application images stored on a centralised VDI server. This relieves IT staff of the burden of installing operating systems and applications on individual machines. Time-consuming OS migrations are avoided for each piece of hardware.
  • Reduced equipment acquisition and upgrade costs- Only servers must be purchased or upgraded; a wide range of supported client devices, including older models, can access them. There is no need to purchase new or upgrade existing hardware on a regular basis. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) users can access the VDI at any time.
  • Minimized impact of hardware downtime- When client devices fail, the impact on user productivity is minimal because users can always use another device with minimal system requirements. They are not required to wait for their own device's problem to be resolved before returning to work.
  • Instant backup capabilities- VDI eliminates reliance on individual machines for storage, lowering data risks if machines are misplaced, stolen, or suffer hard drive failures. All core software, applications, and files are kept on remote servers, making backup and restoration simple.
  • Accessibility- End users can "bring your own device" (BYOD) and use their devices to gain remote access to their files, applications, and cloud services from any location using VDI. This essentially creates a digital workspace/remote desktop, improving user experience and making it significantly easier for employees to work from home by allowing them to use PCs, tablets, smartphones, and thin clients.

Boost Your Business with VDI and ConsultEdge (Now ConsultEdge) helps you to manage the manageability, security, and infrastructure requirements that are required to keep a business running. Because of these challenges, IT leaders are looking for tools that will help them manage these environments more securely and affordably. That tool is virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

VDI Basic Components:

  • VDI is made up of servers that "host" desktop operating systems and application software within "guest" virtual machines that can be accessed from any device. Thus, at its core, VDI enables the abstraction of hardware and software on both the server and client sides.
  • Hypervisor: VDI employs a hypervisor to install multiple desktop operating systems on a server as virtual machines. This hypervisor, which can be hardware-based (bare-metal) or software-based (hosted), also manages the VMs, allowing each to function as a standalone computer with the necessary virtualized hardware and software resources, such as applications, at its disposal.
  • Connection Broker: The hypervisor is also in charge of brokering client device connections to the VMs on the servers. Client devices, also known as "virtual desktops," connect to the server, boot up a VM's operating system, and then run the applications that reside within the same VM.
  • Operating System Instances: Because VMs virtualize the hardware resources that serve the operating systems and applications, the actual machines that run the virtual desktops can be of any type, including desktop or laptop PCs, tablets, and even mobile phones. They no longer even need to meet the minimum requirements for running an operating system and applications. The cost savings that result from this capability are one of VDI's selling points.
  • How does VDI compare with desktop virtualization? VDI is not the same as desktop virtualization as a category. A single desktop computer runs a single guest virtual machine in desktop virtualization. VDI, on the other hand, is an alternative to other types of virtual desktop delivery (like hosted shared solutions that connect endpoints to a shared desktop or local desktop virtualization where desktop environment runs directly on the client). VDI migrates the desktop operating system from a local computer to a shared hosting environment.

How we make VDI right for your business?

Leverage CloudFence (Now ConsultEdge) VDI services to securely store all your employee and company data on a trusted virtual desktop rather than their local desktops. We are best-known for flawlessness in our fidelity. We are passionate about helping companies move to the Cloud, and do it confidently. We have seen many struggling projects reclaim their business foothold by implementing end-to-end security from the endpoint to the applications. We understand the need for a budget and plan for reliable maintenance, service, and support without adding FTEs. We not just move data on the cloud but also manage the cloud implementations for long-term benefits.

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is an important part of our company' IT strategy because it allows them to cut costs and simplify system management. Because it provides the accessibility, security, scalability, automation, and ease of use to implement quickly and effectively, the importance of VDI is growing exponentially as companies look to enable a more flexible work landscape.
