Security Benefits of VDI and On-Premises DaaS

42885770_s

As we’ve discussed before, there are three basic considerations you must keep in mind when developing a business case for VDI – your organization’s key business drivers, the cost and ROI, and your change management strategy. But the recent OPM and Ashley Madison hacks have thrown a harsh spotlight on another critical factor:

How implementing desktop virtualization can contribute and strengthen the security of your organization, from protecting your data to guarding your […]

Is the ROI of VDI Really the “One Reason” People Use VDI?

42754425_s

A while back, Brian Madden wrote an interesting article titled “Why do people use VDI? One reason!” In that article, Brian observed that organizations often implement VDI for one simple overarching reason whether it is for improved security, mobility, or a host of other reasons.

He illustrates his point by introducing what he calls DWI – or Doctors with iPads: A doctor walking into an administrator’s office and setting down his iPad and […]

benefits-of-On-Premises-DaaS-v-traditional-daas

As we all know, traditional DaaS solutions typically rely upon a third-party company to host an organization’s desktop services on their servers.

This should not only include examining your application needs, network infrastructure and change management strategies, but also your business case for VDI.

Most customers list ROI, mobility and security as their primary business drivers at the enterprise level. However, VDI is difficult and requires many […]

Assessing Your Network: VDI and the WAN Dilemma

When determining whether or not your organization is ready for VDI, one of the four key considerations you need to take into account is network readiness. VDI solutions require a near real-time transfer of packets across the network as end users interact with the virtual desktop on servers that are typically in a data center at another location.

But the user experience can be impacted by your network’s performance in three key ways: bandwidth, quality (packet delivery) and, for WANs, […]

Is Your Organization Ready for VDI?

vdi-readiness

As I’ve discussed previously, the user benefit of desktop virtualization is clear, since teleworking, mobility and BYOD are rapidly becoming more of an expectation in the workplace, rather than a rare luxury reserved for the few. However, as advantageous as a VDI solution can be to an organization for productivity, security and accessibility, you must thoroughly evaluate whether or not your organization is ready for such a change before green […]
