Minimize Downtime

Consider deployment and managed services as a means to minimize downtime.

In order to quickly start seeing a return on investment, organizations need to deploy new solutions without losing employee productivity. While deploying virtual desktops no longer requires a VDI specialist in the IT department, some organizations with a limited in-house IT staff may want to consider on or off-premise management services to help deploy and maintain the solution over time. Services may also include IT or end-user training and compliance reporting, in addition to maintenance and support. With the right solutions provider, managed services can ensure that the solution works for you over the long term.

The introduction of hyper-converged appliances, enhancements to brokering software and new management solutions have made virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) easier to plan, deploy and run than ever before. The cost per seat has decreased significantly, and there are fewer steps required to get a VDI appliance up and running, making the adoption of desktop virtualization more accessible across a variety of industries. With the threat of security breaches increasing exponentially, and continued BYOD use in several highly regulated industries like health care, VDI continues to grow in relevance and importance as a way to deliver security-by-design. In this slideshow, Jeff McNaught, executive director and chief strategy officer, Dell Cloud Client-Computing, has identified five tips organizations can use to effectively implement a VDI solution.
