Virtual desktops can be used to unify businesses by allowing all users to log in to any computer and be able to access all applications from any location. This creates a safer network because no data is being stored or saved locally. Virtual desktops can offer greater security while making business more productive and efficient by creating a cohesive network.
Cloud technology ensures all users can log onto their desktop from any location. Many employees are inconvenienced by the necessity to sit at the same desktop all day in order to access their data. By using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), all employees can log into their personalized desktops with ease.
Since all data is located in a data center, the information can be easily stored, managed and secured. According to PC World from IDG, by obtaining a virtual desktop companies can acquire one premium system with redundant power supplies, high-performance storage and high-bandwidth networking that will deliver capable hardware to all users equally. This is favorable over buying individual laptops for every employee.
Instead of purchasing traditional laptops or desktop computers, implementing a VDI can be more cost-efficient. According to Computer Weekly, virtual desktops have a far longer lifespan than PCs and typically offer a six-year warrant. VDIs also use 30 percent of the power that traditional PCs consume.
