VMware View Solves Poor Planning

Here at Helixstorm, we spend a lot of time telling customers how great virtual desktops are. And with good reason: they significantly reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for your company computers, can be easily managed from one central location, and are incredibly flexible because you can access them with a lot of different devices.

Flexibility is one of my favorite features about this technology, and I want to share with you a real-life example of why.

I was heading to a meeting yesterday when I received an email with information that needed to go in a presentation document. As I pulled over, I realized my laptop was at 0% charge. I think everyone knows that panicked feeling- but fortunately I had my iPad with me. Because my desktop is housed in our company data center rather than an endpoint machine, I was able to pull up my computer on that device and add the necessary information to the file. When I got to the meeting site I printed the document, presented it, and everything proceeded without any hiccups. There’s no way that would have been possible without a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) in place in our organization.

Having the ability to use a variety of different devices to keep productivity high is just one of the benefits of virtual desktops, but it’s one that has made a big difference in our business. If you’re looking for more information about virtual desktops, we invite you to visit our website or request a demonstration.
