In traditional server setups, an operating system is installed right on top of the hardware of a physical server. With virtualization, an additional layer is created between the hardware and an operating system, enabling the operating system to run inside each virtual machine.
VDI hosts desktops that allow users to securely access company data using their personal desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones as access terminals while the entire applications and data securely reside in the enterprise public or private cloud infrastructure. Changes on a master desktop image can be quickly mirrored to virtual desktops in a desktop pool to create flexible workspaces at scale to make it easy to monitor and operate.
Though not impossible, it is difficult to provide secure, scalable, and productive remote workspaces without the right desktop virtualization service. Wipro’s virtuadesk™ answers the call.
VDI for remote access and mobile workforce
Wipro’s virtuadesk, a VDI solution for banking, enhances the remote working experience and makes it easier for CIOs, CTOs and CISOs to meet their business objectives across cost optimization, employee engagement, security, compliance and operational excellence.
Not all VDI solutions or workspaces are created equal
Some solutions fail to focus on subtle elements like personalization, configurability and user experience, which are critical in ensuring productivity. These elements also do not address the inherent network-related challenges, multi-location availability and security while employees work remotely.
Few other solutions cannot scale existing enterprise investments in virtualization or offer the commercial flexibility of a pay-as-you-go model.
What differentiates Wipro’s virtuadesk™ is its hybrid/multi-cloud capabilities that ensure any device, anywhere, anytime availability, plus the full benefits of VDI and desktop as a service:
- Pre-engineered and proven reference architecture deployed at scale
- End to end virtual desktop as a service including image engineering and application packaging
- Sophisticated endpoint security measures
- Quick and customizable deployment options for hybrid and multi cloud deployments
- Self-service UI/UX management across multiple public and private cloud solutions
- Software-deﬁned storage and networking for improved performance and security
- Flexible commercial models with up to 30-40% savings
With Wipro’s virtuadesk, banks and other financial institutions can enable a simplified, secure, intelligent and high-performing workspace for a remote and mobile workforce today and in the future too.
If you want to increase collaboration, move at the speed of business in an uncertain environment and scale as your needs change, explore the benefits of adopting flexible workplaces.
Here are 3 simple steps to leverage the benefits of VDI and desktop as a service. These are the strategies we had used to help a top Swiss bank achieve business continuity and keep their employees engaged and productive. Similar steps will work for you too.
