Importance of debugging & fixing
VDI on Azure is the use of Azure resources and services to create an infrastructure for the remote delivery of desktops. It is based on Azure’s Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) service, which you can manage with Remote Desktop Session Host. The service is designed to enable you to deliver Windows desktops to your users on nearly any client device.
Implementing Azure VDI has many advantages, including:
Enables Secure Remote Work:
Employees who travel frequently or work remotely can launch virtual desktops containing a full range of virtual apps and data. VDI is like a mobile office available on demand. Azure VDI creates powerful experiences wherever your users are.
Improves IT Efficiency:
With VDI, IT admins can configure network settings, add users, deploy desktop apps, and control security from a central location in record time. Virtual desktops eliminate the need for IT to manually configure each endpoint and allow desktops to be provisioned almost instantly. An added benefit is that Azure VDI integrates with Microsoft 365 security and management, further streamlining processes for IT.
Enhances Data Security:
Because VDI is centralized and runs in a sandbox, it can become a fundamental component of an organization’s security strategy. This eliminates the IT problem of storing sensitive corporate data locally on the client device. The advantage of non-persistent images is that each session provides a new desktop, removing malware and viruses on reboot.
Another security benefit is that VDI eliminates the need for a VPN, mitigating one of the biggest security risks an organization faces. VDI prevents shadow IT, or the use of IT systems, devices, software, applications, and services without direct IT approval, giving IT back control of enterprise data security.
Lowers IT Costs :
Because VDI processing is server-based, there’s no need for expensive or cutting-edge hardware. VDI allows for less expensive computing devices such as thin clients, and extends the lifecycle of physical hardware. VDI also saves money on IT infrastructure, server licensing and computer deployment and maintenance.
Moving to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) will certainly improve your organization’s productivity. Using Microsoft Azure Cloud Services, you can ensure more lean and agile operations across the company. The employees can work with greater efficiency and flexibility while protecting the data against breaches.
