Cloud First for VDI provides a solution to ultimately reduce the cost of desktop management and increase workforce mobility.

Force 3, delivering the best in federal security, unified communications, networks, data center, and medical imaging solutions, today announced the launch of Cloud First for VDI, a new pre-configured solution for virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Strategic partnerships with Cisco, NetApp, and Citrix enable Force 3 to provide the new solution, designed to minimize the complexity of deploying and managing VDI in today’s collaborative technology environment. The Cloud First for VDI solution is built on NetApp FlexPod architecture and includes all of the necessary components to stand up a system with Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) for a Citrix XenDesktop workload. Cloud First for VDI bundles all of the technology and support necessary to implement VDI into a single transaction, providing a uniquely streamlined procurement and deployment process.

“As the vision for the modern workplace continues to move towards a more connected and collaborative environment, organizations are looking to improve their efficiency, agility, and security,” said Sudhir Verma, Chief Services Officer at Force 3. “Cloud First for VDI provides a solution that includes storage, servers, software and services needed to design and deploy a VDI environment that reduces risk, allows for faster deployment time, and ease of procurement to ultimately reduce the cost of desktop management and increase workforce mobility.”

Cloud First for VDI offers seamless scalability from a small pilot environment to large production with a building-block pod architecture. With pre-configured options for 500 to 10,000 users, Force 3 has positioned the solution to expand. As capacity requirements grow, components to increase the necessary capacity modules such as compute, memory, or storage can be added without impact to the end user.
