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
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,
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
desktop infrastructure (VDI) allows you to have central management of all your desktops and
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
they get direct access to data and features as if the application were loaded on their local
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
Aossia, you have greater control of how you secure your desktop. You can lock down the image
external devices or prevent copying data from the image to your local machine. Remote users or
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
power of a traditional PC, VDI helps reduce energy costs and can decrease the carbon footprint
to 80 percent.
Access from anywhere - All you need is Internet
Access from any device - Any PC, Any Laptop, Any
Smartphone, Any Tablet, Wyse…
