If you're ready to get started, so are we:
Choosing a virtual desktop system is usually pegged down to this ultimate question - do I get the 32 Bit or 64 Bit? What’s even worse is that not many people even know what these terms even mean. So today we will break it down to you in simple language and try as much as possible to make you understand what these systems are all about.
Remote desktop access allows the user to establish and maintain a secure connection to a remote computer via VPN. Users have the ability to access these secure resources in the same way they would have if they were directly using the host computer. In order to have remote desktop access via a virtual private network or VPN, you need to have two components in place and these are:
Desktop virtualization is now possible thanks to various VDI systems. This is undoubtedly one of the best technical solutions you can set in place for your organization. Not only does it encourage flexibility, it also does a lot to increase work productivity and streamline multiple work processes as well. However, this is a technical solution that many use to achieve the wrong goals. It is important to understand that desktop virtualization is to ultimately make life easier for all those who use it and not just to control the end user applications or make the IT department less stressful.
It is the employees who use this system and it is important to realize that user support is fundamental in actualizing desktop virtualization. The good thing about having a goal with your virtualization endeavor is that it increases collaboration in the workplace as administrative groups that previously had limited interaction can now work cohesively. Secondly, the processes are made easier as they are streamlined. This means that you no longer have parallel processes but merged ones. Lastly, it impacts on technology since technologies that earlier on worked separately can now become one with VDI.
Technology always faces the risks that come with security threats, and IT managers are tasked with the daunting job of ensuring that the IT environment is free from being compromised at all times. Like any other technology that is IP based, video conferencing is not free from security threats and data transmission is without a doubt the most vulnerable part of video conferencing. This is because data needs to travel over private and public networks before it can reach its destination. This therefore means that there is need for encryption and advanced network security to protect this transmission. So what are some of the security measures you can put in place to protect yourself further? We discuss these below.
A terminal server is also referred to as a serial server gives organizations the ability to connect devices to a local area network (LAN) serial interface. Terminal servers come built in Windows servers and allows users to have desktop remote access from thin clients and different types of workstations as well.
VPN known full as Virtual Private Network is simply a discrete network that is used to connect to the internet. Many businesses are more inclined to using VPNs since they connect to datacenters that are remote and this means that their information is secure. VPN therefore ensures you that your internet connection is encrypted and all the information you are sending is free from intrusion. If you are constantly online, you may want to consider using VPN as opposed to the easily accessible Local Area Network (LAN). Below are some valid reasons on why you should move to a VPN.
As you may already know, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure is a model of centralized computing that allows users to access their desktop environment from anywhere. Known simply as VDI, this form of computing is becoming a legitimate threat to what has been used for ages which is Sever Based Computing (SBC). Today, we will discussing the two computing solutions in a bid to show you which the better solution for your business is.
The future is finally with us with desktop virtualization, and it is no longer rare to see people working in remote environments thanks to application software that allows users to access work from anywhere. Virtualization has provided a comprehensive platform for users to manage their systems effectively since all components of the desktop are made virtually accessible. This paves way for a more flexible and secure environment in which users can approach various support mechanisms.
Thanks to Microsoft you can now optimize and tune your Windows 8 computer in a VDI environment. This is going to be vital in reducing your memory foot print and CPU operations as well. Recently, the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) had a breakout session which mainly focused on this subject of optimizing Windows 8 desktops under VDI and there were three key topics of discussion. These were:
With rising competition in the market, small and medium businesses are forced to adopt innovative communication technologies and concepts for a competitive advantage. There is hardly anyone who will deny the significance of telephone technology in modern day business world. Through the telephone technology was developed as a mean for conversation only, it has been radically transformed into a more efficient tool for valuable business communication and now includes numerous useful features.
