Virtual Bridges VDI Gen2

Many organisations are benefiting from Virtual Bridges VERDE with both on-site installation and Cloud/managed infrastructure.


This is just a small selection of VERDE's reference cases:

 

ICERM at Brown University This team of researchers is highly transient and requires an extremely customizable tool set of applications. Rather than configure each individual device based on standard policies then address customization requests, ICERM sought a technology partner that offered a flexible, easy-to-manage desktop virtualization solution to reduce maintenance costs and man-hours.

API API needed a uniform infrastructure that would support the transition of most of its workstations to thin clients with more affordable and reliable services and accommodate a considerable number of constantly mobile laptop users across its Roma headquarters and Falconara refinery.

MacDonalds

Taking advantage of the stability of Virtual Bridges technology combined with the ability to remotely administer systems via Unix has made McDonald’s exceptionally successful in their IT strategies.

Immediate simplification and costs reduction

Managing and supporting locally installed operative systems and applications has always been a time consuming and costly excercise since PCs arrived on our desks.
PCs generally allows a great degree of freedom as users like to personalise their desktops or install their preferred applications but that can turn in to a nightmare not just for technical support but for the whole company.

The following chart allows you to easily understand Virtual Bridges VERDE on the market.

 

Virtual Bridges posizionamento di mercato

Here are just a few benefits that a Virtual Desktop Environment, created with Virtual Bridges VERDE, will bring to your company:

Financial Rationalization

  • Reduce TCO (CAPEX and OPEX) and improve hardware utilization with fewer servers, cheaper NAS storage, and no external WAN dependency
  • Improve time to value via one-click provisioning and reduce deployment by up to 50 percent
  • Reduce help desk costs using Gold Master Image technology to deliver applications, patches, updates without disrupting users

Improve IT Support & Operational Efficiency

  • Increase control and visibility with one unified management console and configurable reports (capacity and historical data, user and administrator events, desktop and application activity, and more)
  • Standardize/automate provisioning processes regardless of desktop hardware or operating system
  • Increase business agility by supporting connectivity from almost any client (PC, Mac, thin-client, workstation) as well as mobile and branch workers

Provide Assurance for Technology Updates

  • Ease Windows 7 migration by eliminating complexity, cost, time and application compatibility challenges traditionally associated with deployment
  • Future-proof your enterprise by leveraging existing infrastructure and hardware

Deliver Consistent Experience for the Desktop

  • Ensure consistent user experience between VDI and disconnected use with latest operating system, applications and user documents
  • Speed enterprise adoption with high quality, “high-def” user experience, regardless of time, location (branch/mobile), connection (online/offline), device type or point of access (centralized/self-service portal)
  • Improve productivity by delivering “LAN-like” performance for branch office users, and bi-directional sync for offline users

Reduce Risk with Enhanced Security & Compliance

  • Minimize security concerns with role/task-based provisioning, user/group policies and encrypted offline use
  • Reduce risk with native malware resistance for all virtual desktop sessions
  • Ensure secure remote access to user desktops and applications with enhanced endpoint security

Deliver Desktop as a Public/Private Cloud Service

  • Streamline migration path to cloud computing from old model to enterprise on-premise model to hosted model
  • Choose from on-premise, hosted and federated deployment options with guaranteed SLAs
