The Workspot Desktop Control Fabric Architecture
Today every organization has access to dozens (and someday hundreds) of cloud “data centers,” but legacy VDI architectures can’t keep up. We built the Desktop Control Fabric™ architecture from the ground-up to take advantage of massive public cloud scale. Here’s why that matters.
Multi-Region and Multi-Cloud for Resilience and Performance
Distributed, mobile organizations have unique requirements. When employees and contractors are scattered around the country, the region, or the globe, security, latency and business continuity are primary concerns for remote work. Workspot’s Desktop Control Fabric architecture was designed with this in mind. Separating the control and data planes was a fundamental design decision that enables horizontal scalability across public cloud regions, with everything managed from a single admin console. Older architectures require the VDI stack to be copied to every cloud region, and installing and operating multiple copies of a complex stack is not affordable or sustainable. Learn more about the implications of architecture design for meeting your security, performance, and resilience requirements.
The New Math of VDI Performance
The Desktop Control Fabric architecture enables you to place every cloud desktop and GPU cloud workstation in the cloud region closest to each user. That’s how you create low latency / high bandwidth access and deliver amazing performance people love. Only a cloud-native architecture affords you these performance benefits.
Workspot has established a new gold-standard for virtual desktop performance. Debates over protocols are ancient history, along with legacy virtual desktop architectures. The importance of selecting a cloud-native architecture cannot be overstated when it comes to zero-trust security, better-than-PC performance, and business agility that transforms companies.
Cloud Desktop Security and POLP
Workspot’s architecture design follows the Principle of Least Privilege (POLP). POLP is closely tied to Zero Trust Security policy where no one is trusted, either inside or outside the organization. POLP allows for people and processes to only have the bare minimum access to complete a task. That means that everyone, including the cloud desktop vendors you’re considering, needs to prove how they make your organization more secure.
Architecture really matters for security. Again, control and data plane separation was a crucial architecture decision that among many other benefits, allows our solution to stand apart from any other when it comes to security. In addition, Workspot’s global, real-time monitoring can help to proactively detect risks so IT ad security teams can take action.
Real-Time Data For Maximum Business Uptime
There’s a fundamental choice you need to make: Will you choose “do-it-yourself” (DIY) virtual desktop deployment and management, or does Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) make more sense for your organization? With DIY approaches, you are responsible for the TCO and service level agreement (SLA) of the solution. With Workspot, we take on responsibility your cloud desktop SLA, with flat rate, predictable pricing.
We collect, correlate and analyze real-time data from all components to determine if anything is affecting the end user’s connection to their cloud desktop. We can identify problems in real-time with our Network Operations Center.
