Thanks to the rising importance of business mobility, the BYOD trend, and improvements in the underlying technology, the adoption rate of desktop virtualization is faster today than ever before.
But as enterprises move to virtualization as a foundation for end-user computing strategies, more agile, high-performing infrastructures are needed.
Download this white paper to learn why software-defined data centers (SDDC) are an attractive infrastructure option for virtualization. Inside, you’ll gain access to different articles featuring:
Why infrastructure matters in desktop and application virtualization
Building the future of the desktop on the software-defined data center
SDDC-powered virtual desktop and application benefits
Breaking the link between access devices and virtual desktops (VDI) in a data center provides numerous benefits including cost efficiency and access transparency regardless of a user’s physical location. However, as more organizations move away from a physical desktop to VDI, they must decide whether they should build it themselves or purchase an all-in-one cloud service.
This white paper highlights the benefits of using a managed desktop cloud service that provides infrastructural support while reducing infrastructure and operational costs.
Access now to discover how other organizations are saving money by utilizing a managed cloud service.
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
AIC, Canada’s largest privately held mutual fund company, aimed to shrink their data center footprint and manage IT infrastructure more effectively. With the VMware Infrastructure 3 suite, AIC has been able to handily address its IT challenges and create a scalable, manageable IT infrastructure. Find out how much they saved, and how VMware impacted their organization's workload and productivity.
As a growing law firm, Sills Cummis found itself presented with several classic IT challenges. It had to contend with server proliferation within its data center, implement a cost-effective disaster recovery system, and ensure high availability of key applications and services for its attorneys. Through its purchase of the VMware Infrastructure 3 suite, Sills Cummis was able to tackle all of these problems.
For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch
offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few
highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over
WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency
issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance
and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most
problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the
issues with WAN connectivity.
WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS
(multiprotocol label switching)
Organizations worldwide are using virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) to run virtual desktops in the
datacenter and deliver these to employees as a managed service. End users gain a familiar, personalized
environment they can access anywhere from any device, while administrators gain control and security. With
VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), IT professionals can implement a VDI infrastructure to help
drive down operational costs, enhance security, and support a mobile workforce.
For organizations with disaster recovery services in place, the challenge often lies in supporting the ongoing maintenance and
re-evaluating the initial investment versus newer offerings as their environment continues to expand, or leases expire.
Fortunately, the landscape of disaster recovery solutions is shifting to accommodate changing IT needs. VMware vCloud® Air™ Disaster Recovery provides simple, affordable, automated processes for replicating and recovering critical applications and data — at a fraction of the cost of duplicating infrastructure or maintaining
additional data centers. Organizations can afford to scale their efforts as needed, with flexible terms and resource options.
VMware® delivers vCloud® Government Service, provided by Carpathia®, an enterprise class hybrid cloud solution where both onsite and offsite IT environments are not just connected and integrated with common management, but are designed to run existing and new applications in exactly the same way. With vCloud Government Service, government customers don’t have to spend cycles adapting to the cloud and rewriting code; instead, they can focus on leveraging what the cloud brings to deliver value to their branch of government or mission responsibilities. Customers can securely extend their data centers to the cloud rapidly, easily and confidently, using a more supportive and integrated cloud infrastructure that is FedRAMP authorized.
