Virtual Desktops for Everyone..

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:

  • Android
  • iOS
  • Linux
  • OS X
  • Microsoft Windows
  • IBM z/OS

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:

  • Different OS: Most of the students on campus have different systems that support different applications. The campus may have applications which may run specifically on a particular operating system, which makes it difficult for students to access it. Thus virtual machines come in handy for every student.
  • Licensed Software: Institutions or coaching centers use software that are licensed and may cost a fortune. These software need to be accessed by different students who enroll under different courses even for a short time. Instead of buying a license key for each individual user, virtual desktops can be used by students to access them.
  •  System Admin: Along with complete access to the courses, the institute or coaching systems need to maintain a secure environment for the students. Virtual machines help the students access the systems from their own devices when they are out attending conferences or similar events.

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.

  • Development teams: The corporates, SMEs & startups like to keep their data secured and provide a good development environment to their teams or developers with better governance.
  • Heavy Workload: Depending upon the industry and technology, it may require heavy processes to be run using several softwares and this can be easily attained by virtual desktop where configuration could be changed on click of buttons reducing any upfront costs.

3. GDPR & Compliances: Different countries have different compliances anf GDPR is strongest and followed in entire Europe 

  • Data Security: We live in a time where data is considered a gold mine and everyone needs to protect their data, not only for compliance but to compete with their rivals. Secure Remote Access provides a level of enhanced security.
  • Compliances: Different countries have different sets of compliance for their data which needs to be honored and at the same time business continuity needs to be achieved. In such scenarios, remote developers provide access to remote teams or third-party vendors, with the help of virtual desktops.

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.
