Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Aossia VDI is a complete business solution applicable to all industries and business specifics and delivers enterprise-class control and manageability with a familiar user experience. Aossia VDI, built on VMware’s industry leading and proven virtualization platform, provides new levels of efficiency and reliability for your virtual desktop environment.

The idea behind what is called a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) from Aossia is to run desktop operating systems and applications inside virtual machines that reside on servers in the data center. Desktop operating systems inside virtual machines are also referred to as virtual desktops. Users access the virtual desktops and applications from a desktop PC client, thin client, laptop, tablet or smartphone using a remote display protocol and get almost the full features as if the applications were loaded on their local systems, with the difference being that the applications are centrally managed.

Typically in a desktop environment, the IT staff member must go to the PC to troubleshoot and fix problems when they occur. If the problem is with a computer used by a worker in a remote site or who works on the road, the user might have to wait for someone to come to the site or they might be asked to send the computer to the main office for repair.

In many cases, software updates and patch installations can be automated. But frequently, the patch installations occur during non-work hours when users turn their PCs off. Users may also need help with the process, again taking up IT staff time. Worse, some users may ignore instructions and not install the updates or patches. This can result in a desktop PC being infected with malicious software.

Outside of the software issues, desktop management increasingly involves data protection. For instance, many companies have extensive backup and recovery and disaster preparedness plans in place to protect data on servers and dedicated storage devices. But they do not routinely back up the data and applications on desktops. Regardless of what the data is, there is generally a need to protect it from corruption and it must be backed up in case of a hard disk crash, user error, or malicious destruction. In today’s work environment, where workers can be in geographically dispersed, remote offices, the data stored on distributed desktop computers is often vital to the operation of the business. Such intellectual property. Or the data could data could include correspondence and documentation that would be essential in protecting be essential corporate records, files, or data On top of all of these issues that make desktop management so challenging, there is one more point to consider: Many companies are preparing to migrate to a new version of Microsoft Windows. Before any systems can be migrated, companies will need to perform a hardware inventory on each PC to see if it has the CPU, memory, and disk space to run next version of Microsoft Windows. Companies also need to inventory peripherals in those desktop PCs to check whether they are supported in the new version of Microsoft Windows. Similarly, a software inventory is required to see which programs must be run on the existing PC or be transferred to a new desktop. This inventory also serves to check whether the programs can run under the new version of Microsoft Windows.

Aossia VDI offers many benefits like:

  • Streamline Management, reduce costs up to 60% - In a typical corporate infrastructure, you manage desktops using remote software. It is really hard to manage hundreds of desktops as you are well aware if you administer desktops in your corporate infrastructure. Using technology such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) allows you to have central management of all your desktops and really control what is being installed and used on the desktops. Deployment of virtual desktops is lightning fast. Imagine that you can manage 500 desktops all over the United States or Europe or manage them only from one place?
  • Increase Security up to 85% - When users access virtual desktops from a remote PC or thin client, they get direct access to data and features as if the application were loaded on their local system. Integrating two-factor authentication from RSA helps ensure that users are who they claim to be, reducing the risk of improper access and distribution of sensitive information. With the VDI from Aossia, you have greater control of how you secure your desktop. You can lock down the image from external devices or prevent copying data from the image to your local machine. Remote users or road warriors also benefit as sensitive data is stored on the server in the data center and not the device. If the device is stolen, the information is protected.
  • Go Green - When used in conjunction with thin-client devices, which typically use 10 percent of the power of a traditional PC, VDI helps reduce energy costs and can decrease the carbon footprint by up to 80 percent.
  • Access from anywhere - All you need is Internet
  • Access from any device - Any PC, Any Laptop, Any Smartphone, Any Tablet, Wyse…
  • Business agility - Accommodate new business needs by quickly adding new desktop users or groups of users.
  • Business continuity and disaster recovery – Aossia VDI is built on industry-leading VMware Virtual Infrastructure and can automate desktop backup and recovery as a business process in the data center.
