Desktops Save the World

Cynthia Gutowski

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) saving the world is not that far-fetched. Had it not been for VDI admins, architects, virtualization admins, and network providers, who knows what our world would look like today. Not to beat the pandemic drum again, but the reality is, VDI has exploded.

VDI and remote work adoption from 2019-2020

If you’re the team member who is responsible for deploying and managing desktops at warp speed – efficiently, globally, securely, and for the long term – your occupation is now essential. Remote access is a matter of survival, and outside of traditional office settings, organizations are building short-term and long-term strategies for success. Those strategies include virtual desktop deployments that will make it easier to modernize workspaces for remote flexibility and business endurance.

Your role in IT is at the center of it all. It’s time to start putting VDI to work for you and your organization. Adapting long-term strategies requires a new level of solutions that are fast, flexible, and secure. Virtual administrators and architects, and all those responsible for managing these VDI environments, are looking at and/or actively deploying long-term VDI solutions that:

  • Can be deployed securely in hours, not days
  • Use a single GUI to control multiple tenants, with resources across your data center and the public cloud
  • Accommodate task workers, knowledge workers, and power users globally, 24/7
Reasons why companies and workers like remote work Mark your calendars for September 10, 9:00 a.m. PT, noon ET and join NetApp and Microsoft for the Master Class webcast:  Proven VDI Best Practices in a Hybrid World.
