Managing Your IT Environment.

Is Virtualization Right For Your Organization?

Virtual work environments, flexible schedules, and a mobile work force have changed the way companies conduct business. The new business environment prompted many industries and companies to examine how they support this new working model from an IT perspective. End-users want devices that complement their work style and support when they need it. IT professionals are challenged with balancing end-user support, managing the IT budget, meeting cyber security requirements and compliance regulations. How can IT professionals stay ahead and manage their IT environment without compromises?         


Consider setting up a virtual desktop environment and manage your end-users at the server level from your data center. The clients can be remotely configured and managed. Software updates, virus scanning, and patches can be executed on the server.  


Thin clients are fast and easy to deploy-they can be out of the box and set up in less than ten minutes. The client hardware has fewer points of failure and is less susceptible to viruses and malware. The clients connect to servers via web browsers or remote desktop software. Depending on user needs, client desktops can be simple single-application kiosks or a flexible and familiar Windows environment.
