Maintain data integrity without compromising IT control and security.
For companies with multiple users accessing the same files from different locations like health care organizations and architecture firms, VDI provides a way to allow access from a number of different devices without losing the integrity of the data.
For example, doctors can access electronic health records from terminals located at the patient's bedside as well as other designated points throughout the hospital. Architects can access resource-intensive building site plans and make edits on laptops or tablets while they're in the field, where the size and complexity of these files would normally preclude remote access.
With the files stored safely in the data center, multi-team collaboration is enhanced as there is little risk of outdated and multiple versions sitting on different devices, and if any of these devices were lost or stolen, thieves or other unauthorized users would be unable to get a hold of the data itself.
As companies look for ways to enable flexible access to data without compromising security standards or data integrity, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is piquing the interest of IT managers across various industries. With the latest VDI solutions offering far easier implementation and more scalability, now more than ever, desktop virtualization can help businesses achieve the secure, manageable mobility programs employees need.
