VDI Solutions for Education
Virtualized desktops have the potential to transform adult education and training classrooms and campuses. Students and faculty increasingly want to be able to access their personalized desktop anytime, anywhere and by leveraging VDI, college CIOs can meet this need while at the same time maintaining the highest levels of security and business continuity. VDI can also cut costs by 50% through the elimination of capital and operational expenditures, and cuts the energy consumption of classroom computers by 90%.
How does it work?
By decoupling the operating system, applications and data from the end device and by pushing the components into the datacentre where they can be more effectively managed, campuses can dramatically save on the time and resources needed to fulfil helpdesk tickets, push out updates and patches, and provision new images to individuals or pools of users.
