Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

Server virtualization unlocks today’s traditional one-to-one architecture of x86 servers by abstracting the operating system and applications from the physical hardware, enabling a more cost-efficient, agile and simplified server environment. Using server virtualization, multiple operating systems can run on a single physical server as virtual machines, each with access to the underlying server’s computing resources.
Most servers operate less than 15 percent of capacity; not only is this highly inefficient, it also introduces server sprawl and complexity. Server virtualization addresses these inefficiencies..

80 percent greater utilization of server resources
Up to 50 percent savings in capital and operating costs
10:1 or better server consolidation ratio

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure:

Virtualization brings dramatic savings on cost of operation and infrastructure and let the business attain agility in managing its IT based activities. Businesses stand in a better position to meet new challenges and changing demands as they resort to virtualization techniques viz. partitioning, clustering and workload management. The virtualization solutions includes storage virtualization wherein multiple storage devices over the network are integrated to work like a single unit, network virtualization wherein the available bandwidth is split into independent channels assigned to various devices and server virtualization wherein the shared server’s identity is not revealed to or by the devices using it and shares the server space.
Virtualization is all about achieving more utility from lesser in-house owned infrastructure. Its implications are profound and driving the modern enterprises.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) uses server hardware to run Operating system and related applications on virtual machine. The users will access this image on their workstation.

VDI reduces administrative & management tasks easier because all the workstation are relaying on single image. Configure the OS, respective applications as per requirement and patch updates all these will replicate on individual user workstation because all the workstation are using single image.

Install OS and application software updates and patches to the one image, and every desktop system using that image is automatically updated and patched.

Low Licensing Cost:

It reduces the administrative and support costs because of each user will operate on same image with OS as well as applications which are installed.

Less Processing Required:

For meeting minimum hardware requirements of new OS no need to upgrade many workstations.The impact of purchasing of new hardware and maintain of that hardware cost can be reduced. To provide availability of server you can setup with redundant power supply by using UPS with good storage and bandwidth in order to deliver capable hardware to all users.

Simplified Trouble Shooting :

When you encounter problems, you’ll generally have just one system to troubleshoot.Problems can generally be resolved from within the server no need to run out to the workstation. The images are usually accessed from any workstation if the user is experiencing hardware issue simply user can login from another workstation and access their data.
