Virtual Desktop Infrastructure ( VDI)

Office 365 helps you with basic protection to deal with some of the things that could damage your data, but there are few things that it doesn’t protect you from and there are some other side effects to certain optional protection features they offer you with.

Not all types of desktop virtualization leverage host-based VMs like VDI does. Also, VDI is not synonymous with desktop virtualization as a category. Instead, it is an alternative to other forms of virtual desktop delivery, including hosted shared solutions that connect PCs and thin clients to a shared desktop, as well as local desktop virtualization, in which the desktop environment runs directly on the client.

VDI vs. desktop virtualization

Though you may feel that you are well protected, the restoration process is quite tedious and intensive, if you do not have access to a third-party tool. So undoubtedly, backup is a great option for all business enterprises.

What are the benefits and limitations of VDI?

VDI supports enhanced user mobility and remote access, as a standardized desktop can be reached from almost any approved and compatible endpoint in any location. For workers who are frequently on the go and need to pull up a virtual desktop containing a full range of virtual apps and data, VDI is like having an office available on-demand. In that regard, it fits right into their digital workspace workflows that already feature similar, regular consumption of cloud, web and mobile apps across multiple contexts, especially if it’s persistent VDI.

Cost savings and lower hardware requirements

Cost savings and lower hardware requirements

  • Because the lion’s share of processing in VDI is server-based, relatively expensive or cutting-edge hardware is not needed
  • VDI access can instead take place from an inexpensive thin client, which might be an old PC that has been repurposed for the task and thereby had its lifespan extended
  • That saves IT the need to make as many new purchases or major adjustments to its budget
Improved security and centralization

On the security front, VDI offers some improvement over running an OS and everything on it locally. All of the data from a VDI connection lives on the server, not the end client, meaning that if the endpoint is ever stolen, there’s nothing to exfiltrate from its local storage.

Moreover, the VDI environment is fully and centrally controlled from a data center. Administrators can apply software patches and updates, change configurations and enforce policies for all virtual desktops across the deployment.

What are the use cases for VDI?

Businesses can’t be without their critical data for long. Yet, a large-scale disaster can readily disrupt systems and make doing business impossible.

Building out your own data center for disaster recovery is costly. But CBT solution lets you control DRaaS costs by letting you customize disaster recovery services to fit business needs and budget. Plus you’ll never be surprised with extra fees at the time of recovery. When the worst happens, know that data is safe, recoverable, and available.

Local backups are typically sufficient to recover from most common disasters, but a site-wide disaster can be the difference between business continuity and business failure. Unfortunately, many organizations still do not have an offsite DR plan in place
