Virtual Data Infrastructure: A Smarter Way to Boost Business
Desktop virtualization is technology that separates the desktop environment and related application software from the physical client device that is employed to access it. Desktop virtualization can easily be used in conjunction with the application virtualization and (Windows) user profile management systems, now referred "user virtualization," to deliver a comprehensive desktop environment management system. In this mode, all the components of the desktop are virtualized, which facilitates with a highly flexible and much more protected desktop delivery model. Moreover, this approach supports a more absolute desktop disaster recovery strategy since all the components are effectively saved in the data center and backed up through the conventional redundant maintenance systems. If hardware or user's device is lost, the restore is much more simple and straightforward, because fundamentally all the components will be there at login from a different device. Additionally, because no data is secured to the user's device, if that device is lost, there is much less possibility that any important data can be compromised.
VDI(Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure), powered by Windows Server 2012 R2 release, permits you to deploy the remote desktop services architectures that offer employees the flexibility to work anywhere, while enabling them to impeccably access their application environment or corporate windows desktop running in the datacenter from a range of devices. The unified management infrastructure and features for the centralized desktops in Windows Server 2012 R2 release, accompanied with application and user state virtualization technologies with System Center enhances the flexibility of access for the remote desktops and applications, offering consistent, personalized and secure experiences for the users, while also advancing the compliance through centralized control and access to the confidential data.
Virtual Data Infrastructure facilitates the optimal use of hardware by enabling access to the multiple Windows environments (Business—Personal, Dev—Test) from the same client device. They also enable organizations to pursue the “Bring Your Own Device Programs” for the employees, where they use their personally owned hardware for both personal and work. This helps IT to keep the corporate environment secure even when it is accessed from the unmanaged devices. Windows Thin PC is an additional technology that leverages VDI technology by enabling clients to repurpose the existing PCs as thin clients by offering a smaller footprint, locked down version of Windows 7.
