What are the benefits of VDI for businesses?
Virtual desktop infrastructure. Even the name itself can sound confusing. But the benefits of VDI are well worth the small amount of time it takes to understand what it is and how it works. Read on to find out more.
What is VDI?
VDI can be simply described as a type of technology that detaches the application processing from the physical computer in front of you. Rather than running applications on the computer under your desk, you will instead run them from a server that mirrors them on to your PC.
Why use it?
Well, there are various reasons as to why businesses turn to VDI. One of those is the ability to stay connected from anywhere in the world. Provided you have access to a web-browser and the internet then you can work remotely from anywhere in the world. This means that you and your employees can work from home when they aren’t needed in the office, therefore maintaining a better home/life balance, or they can work whilst out and about travelling to important client meetings.
Perhaps you are a start-up business that isn’t quite ready to move into a brick and mortar premises and therefore your workforce is based in multiple locations. It could even save you in times of crises. Say there is flooding at your offices, or heavy snow means your employees are unable to manage their commute to work, they are instead able to work from the safety of their homes and maintain business as usual. The reasons why you might want to use VDI really are endless.
