Discover the Cloud VDI Difference
The promise of virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), hasn’t been achieved – even after more than a decade of trying. IT is unhappy because the VDI solution stack is too complex, takes too long to set up, and is too expensive to operate. End users are unhappy because application performance is poor. And businesses are unhappy because rigid legacy VDI solutions don’t meet their agility needs. VDI has come a long way. Now it’s a turnkey cloud service that is simple, enterprise-ready and globally available to fuel enterprise growth.
Legacy VDI is Costly and Complex
Most virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions today are based on outdated architectures created more than a decade ago. These solutions are complex and expensive, and deploying them often involves a months-long (or even years-long!) project that requires:
- Hiring consultants to design the deployment architecture
- Conducting a proof of concept to evaluate the solution
- Purchasing software, servers, and storage necessary to run the virtual desktops
- Hiring consultants to implement the solution
- Running user pilots and refining the deployment
The cost and complexity of these outdated solutions adds up over time, and becomes operationally unsustainable.
Why Cloud VDI?
There’s a better way. Workspot’s global, SaaS cloud VDI service is enterprise-ready, simplifies IT and brings new agility to the business. This modern, VDI cloud enables IT teams to deploy cloud desktops, apps and workstations in days, and scale globally in minutes so the business can grow beyond prior boundaries.
Workspot has completely reinvented virtual desktop infrastructure through a cloud-native, globally distributed architecture built for the cloud era. Today, VDI is a massively scalable, turnkey, cloud VDI service made possible by the innovations in Workspot’s Desktop Control Fabric™ architecture. Each layer of the fabric is fully managed through a single pane of glass, eliminating complexity. The ability to spin up new cloud desktops and workstations in public cloud regions around the world, on-demand, brings new levels of flexibility and agility that fuels business growth.
Use Cases for Cloud Desktops
Augment Zero-Trust Security policy
Trust no one – not even your virtual desktop provider! When it comes to security, ask the tough questions to ensure the principle of least privilege (POLP) is rigorously enforced. Additionally, it’s fundamental to understand the security implications of the solution architecture, and why choosing a 100% cloud-native architecture is essential for security.
Enable remote employees, contractors and partners
Enterprises rely on remote employees, offshore contractors and partners for a variety of projects. Securing intellectual property and maintaining high productivity while working remotely is a challenge for enterprises employing a global workforce. Here’s how Workspot cloud desktops support secure remote work.
Latency kills performance, and that’s why power users have never been satisfied with virtual desktops – until now. Placing cloud desktops and workstations in the cloud region closest to each user changes everything, typically mitigating latency to imperceptible levels. Outstanding cloud desktop performance keeps even the most demanding power users happy and productive, wherever they are working.
Set up call centers anywhere globally
Organizations can deploy call centers anywhere in the world and ensure secure access to data by call center employees. With Workspot, call center employees can be situated anywhere – including shared office space and home offices.
Streamline joint venture operations to improve profitability
AEC, financial services and life sciences are just a few of the industries where partnership and joint ventures are central to innovation. Cloud desktops enable project teams to easily work together, collaborating in real time to bring products to market more quickly and with higher quality. IT processes are dramatically simplified, since everyone uses the same technology and collaborates within a common data environment.
