Desktop Virtualization

Today’s computing environment requires IT departments to address end user device management challenges more than ever. Users are increasingly demanding access to their applications and data anywhere and from any device. While these trends are making employees more productive, they are causing new challenges for IT departments. New form factors, network dispersion,and increased mobility result in greater complexity and higher pressures on cost control. Furthermore, the proliferation of end-point devices has increased data theft risks and failure to protect this data can lead to significant punitive consequences and a negative impact to the organization’s reputation.

Desktop Virtualization is the act of decoupling the different computing layers and storing some or all of them in a data center. Several forms of Desktop Virtualization can help organizations satisfy users’ needs for mobility and flexibility, while relieving pressure on Information Technology (IT) departments to manage cost, security, and compliance. Additionally, Desktop Virtualization can enable more dynamic centralized management by separating the elements of the traditional desktop computing stack.

However, Desktop Virtualization is a strategic decision and involves multiple stakeholders. With all the hype around Desktop Virtualization, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Application Virtualization, organizations are unsure of the best path forward. There are many questions which need to be answered before an enterprise can embark on the Desktop Virtualization adoption journey

RAJ Tech’s Desktop Virtualization Services Suite assists enterprises by addressing these challenges at various stages.
