What is Virtual Desktop?
Before we jump on to what Virtual Desktop is, let's try to understand what virtualization is and how it is helpful to different organizations.
Virtualization, the presumption is that it is an “operating system within an operating system”. It is a term used with respect to user interfaces, to describe ways in which the virtual space in a computer is expanded beyond the physical limits of the screen. To separate the operating system (OS) from the hardware (CPU and RAM) is referred to as virtualization which is done to run and test how different applications behave on different operating systems.
Some popular OS are:
Why virtual desktops?
There is a need of using multiple operating systems across different industries depending upon the requirements such as software support, user interface, and capabilities. This compensates for the limited area and is also helpful in decluttering the space. It allows applications and systems that are hosted on a server to be accessed virtually, anytime, anywhere.
Who requires these Virtual desktops?
Below are some case studies that will help us understand the need of these virtually enabled machines:
1. Educational Institutes: These institutes have always been challenged with inadequate hardware and software to support hands-on learning experience. There are several reasons:
2. Remote Developers: There are reasons like keeping the source code safe or managing licenses which makes virtual machines a good option for remote developers.
3. GDPR & Compliances: Different countries have different compliances anf GDPR is strongest and followed in entire Europe
In order to solve these challenges, WorkDesk has developed a “Virtual Desktop Management System”. It provides an easy to use interface to launch desktops across the world and provide secure access to the teams as per the needs.
Why do corporations need Virtual Desktop Management Systems in the time of Covid-19?
For some working units, this might be a temporary or interim proposition while the pandemic lockdown is in implementation, while other organizations might be testing the waters for long term feasibility. Regardless of whatever be the tenure, WorkDesk is a unique invention in the area of supporting virtually connected teams spanning across different territories at an extremely affordable cost of investment and inventory. This comes with BYOC (bring your own cloud) where all the desktops are deployed on client’s cloud providing them the Governance they require while managing those services using Workdesk Virtual Cloud Management System.
