Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
Virtual desktop infrastructure is a growing trend aimed to simplify and reduce costs in the running of your IT network infrastructure. It works by hosting your user desktops on centralised server hardware, which is often set up in a clustered or load balanced configuration to provide fault tolerance and high availability. Users work stations then remotely access these virtualised desktops, because of this the specification of the workstation becomes relatively unimportant as it now solely serves to capture keyboard and mouse input and provides visual output through the monitor.
MFM-IT believe that this approach is suitable for most types of business as it is comparatively cheaper to design, implement and administer than the cost of a single one time upgrade of all users workstations in a medium sized company.
As technology progresses and applications become more resource intensive, a VDI network structure provides a solution to keep you one step ahead of the technology curve. This enables your company to save money, dynamically assign resources to where they are needed and centrally administer your systems.
The MFM-IT team have experience in designing and deploying these systems in a wide range of configurations. Through working closely with you, to identify your needs in the design stage and using our Microsoft certified engineers in the implementation, we will always deliver the best solution for you.
