Make Virtual Desktops a reality

Desktop Virtualization or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), is an alternative desktop delivery model that allows users to access desktops running in the datacenter. Redpalm VDI solutions offer a comprehensive range of technologies from our VDI partners, including but not limited to Citrix, Vmware, and Microsoft.

Summary

VDI is the latest in a string of technologies that are re-shaping IT strategy within the business. Conceptually of course it’s nothing new-under-the-sun, but advances in technology have made it an effective delivery model. If you haven’t already considered it, it’s likely you will be over the next few years, as the potential cost-savings, flexibility, green credentials, and increased manageability are too great to not give it some serious thought. However the numbers don’t always stack up for everybody, which is why at Redpalm, we can help you to separate the facts from the hype. We offer all our customers a Free Strategic Review to determine whether VDI is right for your business.

What is it

Put simply, VDI is the practice of hosting a desktop operating system within a VM (Virtual Machine) running on a centralized server. It’s best to think of it as a means of separating the PC desktop from the visual display and input devices. The “virtualised” desktop is stored on a remote server, but the operating user accesses the desktop as if it were stored locally on their device. The remote server compresses, encrypts and encodes the entire computing experience at the server and transmits it 'pixels only' across a standard IP network to any device. PCs and workstations can be centrally managed at the server while providing high-res graphics, HD media, with USB peripheral interoperability remotely over a WAN, or locally over your LAN.
