Virtual workplace (DaaS or VDI)

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..

Advantages of a virtual desktop (DaaS or VDI) over a physical PC:

  • Data and business information security
  • Reduced capital expenditures on hardware and software
  • Reducing system administration costs by simplifying access to the workplace (remote access to the entire infrastructure)
  • Convenient organization of workflow and corporate networks
  • Ability to increase or decrease the number of virtual desktops at any time

What the implementation of virtual desktops gives to the organization?

  • You get a fundamentally new approach to the costs of IT infrastructure. The organization will need significantly fewer engineers and system administrators, since the process of connecting employees and servicing equipment is simplified. With virtual desktops, you don't need to buy anything “in stock”. You take exactly as many jobs as you need right now, if you need to, you cut it, if you need to increase it on any day. The parameters (RAM, processors, hard disk, software) of virtual workstations are also determined by you. Reducing infrastructure and maintenance costs with the transition to virtual desktops reaches 35-40%.
  • Reducing the cost of purchasing, upgrading and maintaining equipment for employees. Initially, when deciding to switch to virtual desktops, you can use all the equipment that is currently in use, but in the future it will be possible to use special equipment that is much cheaper than a full-fledged PC and lasts much longer.Some instances of thin clients can work without maintenance and shutdown for 5 years , which is especially important, for example, when reducing the cost of organizing the continuous operation of the call center. You can even reuse already decommissioned PCs due to poor performance as virtual desktops on the organization's side need minimal power.
  • VDI or virtual desktop enhances the commercial security of companies and protects against data leaks. Administrators can set up a number of rules to prevent an unscrupulous employee from copying important and valuable data for the company. One of the most popular measures is to ban the use of flash drives and connect the phone. For each employee or group of employees, you can individually configure the rules for using his workplace, you can organize a whitelist of resources that are necessary for work or organize anti-virus scanning of all files written to hard drives.
  • It simplifies administration and reduces the required staff to support the equipment, as the equipment becomes simpler, and all administration is carried out remotely. Now the system administrator will not need to be in the office all the time to deal with the problems of the operating system and programs. This is especially useful if the organization has several offices or branches in different cities.
  • Back up on a daily basis. This function will protect employees from failure of data storage systems and hard drives. But most importantly, backup will prevent unscrupulous employees from deleting data when they leave or in a conflict. If an employee deletes important data, then it can be quickly restored.

For whom?

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.

Features of cooperation with us:

  • Individual approach. We will help you calculate the amount of resources required to organize the required number of workplaces, calculate the cost of the required licenses and tell you about the correct organization of the migration and data transfer process.
  • Modern infrastructure. This is important because employees should not feel the change from a stationary workplace to a virtual platform.
  • Experience in implementing projects for the provision of virtual workplaces according to the DaaS and VDI model for large clients.
