Over the past few years the idea that "next year will be the year of VDI" has been presented and each year we see that it's a bit of a flop. While maybe not THE year, 2015 - 2016 is a good time to reevaluate if desktop virtualization may is a fit for your business.
Over the past five years many of my customers have engaged in small scale desktop virtualization projects which never matured to their full potential. This occurred for many reasons but they basically come down to a combination of 3 things: cost, complexity, and user experience.
Well, much has changed in the world over the past few years and I think it's time to reevaluate why some of these project didn't deliver on their potential and if in fact, the reason they didn't has been addressed by newer technology, newer architectures, or simply by Moore's law. User experiences today are higher fidelity, costs are lower, and we have more flexibility than ever before. Not to mention new options for physical architecture and management infrastructure that just didn't exist a few years back.
Perhaps you evaluated desktop virtualization a few years ago and decided that it just wasn't a fit for your business. Maybe that's still the case. But have you really evaluated your need for mobility and remote access recently? Have the application needs of the business changed over the past couple years? Maybe it's time to ask the question again.
If you're inclined to learn more about the new options available today, I'd like to invite you to join me to learn more about the new options available today. Lewan, in partnership with Unidesk, Citrix and AppSense, is hosting a webinar, Traversing the VDI Landscape, during which we'll discuss some of the new options and why it's time to take another look.
Lewan partners AppSense, Citrix, and Unidesk bring unique value to desktop virtualization projects. How do they integrate to ensure your are scaling the difficult mountains of VDI?
