How Cloud-Native VDI Makes VDI Insanely Simple

Dan O’Farrell – VP of Product Marketing

Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has been proven as an extremely effective ways to help organizations protect vital information and free people to work from anywhere on their endpoint device(s) of choice, while giving IT teams strong control over how apps, desktops, and data are accessed and used across the organization. 

Given the strong merits of VDI, one may wonder why it may not be even more ubiquitous than it already is. From the Workspot perspective, one fact about traditional VDI approaches that cannot be dispelled is that managing and operating a VDI environment is complex and complicated, and if not done correctly, it can also be extremely expensive. This is probably the biggest reason that to date, VDI has been used primarily for the most sensitive and “risky” tasks and workloads, including 

  • Healthcare workers 
  • Call centers 
  • Temporary/contract employees 
  • Remote and geographically distributed workers 
  • Remote and “off-shore” developers 
  • “Task workers” in order processing, retail, business process outsourcing (BPO), etc. 
  • And many other specialized functions like information kiosks and digital signage 

For VDI to become even more pervasive beyond its current uses, a new approach is needed to circumvent the legacy VDI approach that requires extensive infrastructure and back-end processes to securely deliver virtual apps and desktops to end-users. Fortunately, Workspot has a modern, cloud-native approach to VDI that alleviates a huge portion of the complexity and cost of legacy VDI, and it is designed and engineered for today’s emerging hybrid multi-cloud world. 

Workspot’s cloud-native VDI control plane consisting of secure, integrated micro-services that support massive scale and multi-tenancy is serving as the catalyst for the next wave of VDI that easily serves more workers involved in more tasks than ever before, because of its combination of scalable power and remarkable simplicity. For this reason, I encourage you to check out our new asset, How Cloud-Native VDI Makes VDI Insanely Simple.
