The City of Kent is deploying Unidesk desktop management software for VDI with Pano Logic zero clients on VMware vSphere virtual infrastructure to simplify desktop delivery for up to 800 workers across most city departments, including the police department, administration, public works, finance and more. With Unidesk, City of Kent workers are enjoying the same customizable desktop experience they’re accustomed to with PCs, but with “anywhere, anytime” access to desktops, faster access to new applications, and virtually instant desktop repair. The City of Kent's Hettrick will detail how the IT organization is already realizing immediate cost savings including:
- OS images cut from dozens to just two, reducing the administrative time spent on repetitive image management tasks
- PC refresh and hardware repair minimized with energy-efficient zero clients
- Deployment times for new desktops and applications reduced from days to an hour
- Desktop support calls resolved at first contact, without costly escalations
- VDI storage requirements reduced from 30-40GB to just 6-8GB per desktop
