Virtual Desktop is a powerful way to manage information that used to be on your computer.
Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) July 14, 2015
Grudi Associates is offering businesses new ways to decrease costs, enhance productivity, improve security and more with cloud-based Virtual Desktop. Transitioning to Virtual Desktop can be an important step for many companies as they move into the cloud.
“Companies spend $3 in operational expenses for every $1 of PC hardware they purchase on average,” says Walt Grudi, President of Grudi Associates, a leading provider of telecom and IT services in Central PA and beyond.
According to Grudi, such expenditures are for provisioning, setup, updating, maintenance, backup, security and a variety of items that are vital to effective IT management. Virtual Desktop helps companies address these costs, while assisting overburdened IT professionals in focusing on other key areas.
“Virtual Desktop is a powerful, innovative way for companies to manage information that used to reside on computers in the office,” says Grudi. “It’s when computer desktops reside on a server or computer other than your own, usually in the cloud.”
Users logging on using Virtual Desktop are actually seeing an image of their desktop sent from a host. It appears identical and operates with the same mouse and keyboard commands, but the instructions are sent to the host to be executed on their remote server. All software programs and data files reside there.
“Older, low-tech computers or ‘thin clients' can have all the functionality of a high-power device with Virtual Desktop,” says Grudi. “Remotely managing files and data also provides superior security because it is consistently and centrally administered instead of relying on several different devices, which can be lost, stolen or compromised.”
Multiple users within an organization can be hosted together, each with their own unique desktop, just as with individual PCs. Each user can have the data files and applications they want or are authorized to access, but they all are managed as one unit by the hosting company. Resources and files can be easily shared by some or all users, however the administrators wish.
“It’s clear that cloud-based hosting of virtual desktops and other cloud services are key driving forces within IT and telecom,” says Grudi. “The cost savings, security, efficiency, user experience and efficient utilization of IT staff make it a smart solution.”
