A virtual workplace (DaaS or VDI) is a deployed operating system with the necessary software on the provider's side that allows employees to work without the need for desktop PCs. To organize a workplace for an employee, only a monitor, information input means (mouse and keyboard), any equipment (current PCs, old PCs of low power, special clients that are much cheaper than PCs) and Internet access will be needed. With this approach, the employee will not notice the difference during work, and we will describe the meaning of such changes for the organization below..
This solution is flexible and suitable for companies of all sizes.
The main advantage for large and medium-sized companies is cost reduction. In our experience, after switching to VDI, costs are reduced by 35-40%.
The main advantage for small companies is the reliability of the solution and fast support. Usually small companies do not have backup equipment and the failure of even one workplace is causing problems. It becomes necessary to call third-party specialists to solve the problem, and in some cases this results in expensive repairs. With VDI, there cannot be such a problem, since all operations and data storage are carried out on the side of the provider.
Here only special cases of VDI application are considered, but we believe that the application of VDI is much wider and every business can define it for themselves and find beneficial advantages.
