Desktop Virtualization

A Complete, Standardized Computing Environment


Desktop virtualization, or virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI), removes desktop software from company laptops and PCs. Instead, these applications exist in the central data center. Users then access the desktop software like one would access an online email account. There’s no software installed on the device, and yet they have the full-feature desktop experience.

This approach has been found to lower costs while simultaneously improving service levels. The IT staff can change, update, and deploy each desktop independently to increase business agility and improve response time.

Mindsight staffs engineers and solution architects who are proficient in both of the leading desktop virtualization solutions. Choosing either VMware or Citrix, Mindsight can help you deploy your own virtual desktop infrastructure.

The Same Personalized Desktops Regardless of Physical Device

Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Virtualized desktops can significantly reduce total cost of ownership by making it easier to update and manage desktop software across the whole company.

Faster Deployment and Management
Manage each virtualized desktop from a central platform and deploy new desktops as easily as you would create a virtual machine.

No Longer Tied to Physical Hardware
Users can experience a consistent, updated, high-quality desktop in any location and on any device.

Improved Security
Because end-user data is stored centrally, the entire system is far more secure and compliant.

Disaster Recovery
Virtual desktop solutions provide an always-on desktop experience by offering business continuity and disaster recovery.

Remote Workers
VDI is an excellent way to enable workforce mobility. Your team can travel anywhere they like, connect to the internet, and access a secure instance of their desktop in just moments.
