Since the onset of the pandemic, several big shifts were made to different workplaces, organizations and business structures. One such change is the wide implementation of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI which, at its core, allows for new ways of doing working and administration within the company.
If you haven’t heard of VDI or have been considering implementing it, here are several reasons why it might be a good idea to integrate it with your company.
VDI Allows for Better Collaboration
One of the main benefits of implementing VDI is the capacity to collaborate with companies and employees over large distances. This brings an increase in productivity as you can hire employees in different countries and time zones which can increase your workforce without having to source for them locally. Additionally, it will be easier to collaborate and form deals with companies overseas as you can have constant and reliable updates between one another.
VDI is Flexibility and Accessible
The 2 main benefits of VDI is the flexibility and accessibility of the system. Firstly, the system is highly flexible as it allows users to access their virtual desktop anytime, anywhere provided that they have an internet connection. It allows for worker flexibility as it allows them to work outside the office and in scenarios that would be impossible to work in. Furthermore, it allows for workers to work and fix anything that’s of short notice or needed urgently.
Additionally, VDI is highly accessible to any employee because the system is highly compatible with any device that can access the internet. This means that your employees can use their phones or even old laptops without a noticeable difference in speed or performance.
VDI Reduces Overall Costs while Increasing Performance
Another benefit of integrating virtual desktop infrastructure into your organization is the amount of money you get to save without having to comprise your company’s performance. The main way that VDI can help reduce costs is by reducing the expenditure that your company is making. This can come in the form of maintenance fees for computers, the energy costs involving them and even staff costs. With VDI you can see these get significantly reduced because you wouldn’t be using your office computers as much since everything is handled online and remotely in a cloud.
Additionally, you can not only increase the performance of your employees but you can also expect an increase in security with your data because everything is stored in a private cloud for your company. This is because everything is handled locally in that cloud and only user input and commands are sent over the network in comparison to actual data being sent.
