In today’s multi-cloud era, desktop virtualization is at the top of the list of IT priorities for organizations of all sizes. Business leaders wish to deliver virtual desktops and applications that offer the flexibility to respond to rapidly changing demands without the complexities associated with managing on-premises infrastructure.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC is delivered as-a-service to your data center and edge locations. This allows business leaders to offload infrastructure management tasks and focus more on high-priority IT initiatives.
In the article below, we break down the top five desktop virtualization challenges in today’s multi-cloud environment and how VMware Cloud is helping to solve these challenges.
1. Selecting The Right Infrastructure
The public cloud operating model provides numerous advantages including increased business agility and economic benefits. This has led many organizations to shift away from on-premises infrastructures. Enterprises have sought solutions that enable migrating or extending the capabilities of their virtual desktop and application environments. However, a do-it-yourself approach can result in a less than ideal infrastructure that delivers inconsistent performance and places limitations on scaling.
VMware provides optimal solutions for both traditional and modern applications. For customers that need to remain on-premises, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC simplifies your VDI deployment by delivering a best-in-class solution that enables organizations to take full advantage of the efficiencies of the public cloud operating system while eliminating the need to reskill staff or refactor applications.
2. Interoperability Between Deployments
As business leaders' top priorities have become cloud adoption and desktop virtualization, environments have become increasingly heterogeneous. This has allowed organizations to take advantage of differentiated services, however it has also created a management challenge. To mitigate this challenge, enterprises need a platform that delivers unified infrastructure and operations, providing consistency across deployments.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC brings a compelling value proposition to customers looking to extend capacity for VDI deployments. Applications teams can utilize existing tools, removing the friction of migrating desktops and applications to a new infrastructure.
3. Personalizing And Managing Your VDI Deployment
Enterprises face a pressing need to rapidly deliver a great user experience to remote workforces. For large scale deployments, balancing the need to deliver a seamless customized experience while ensuring security of applications and data presents tremendous challenges.
With Horizon on VMware Cloud on Dell EMC, customers can leverage the same enterprise-grade capabilities and tools used in their on-premises deployments. Business leaders can utilize the Just-in-time Management Platform (JMP) to deliver personalized, non-persistent desktops and applications in seconds.
4. Scaling To Meet Increased Demands
Capacity issues and resource constraints can result in costly consequences for any enterprise. The inability to respond to business needs and support rapid onboarding of new users negatively impacts productivity and profitability.
VMware Cloud on Dell EMC has the ability to support long-term growth and scale IT resources to meet increasing demands on business leaders. The portal also allows customers to add hosts as needed and offers sophisticated sizing tools to meet current requirements and anticipated needs.
5. Ensuring Security Of Desktops and Applications
Desktop virtualization can mitigate threats at endpoint, end-users error, and use sophisticated tactics against cybercriminals. Having the capability to modernize VDI infrastructures to defend against threats can be unmanageable and the reuse of established procedures and security protocols can be troublesome.
The Horizon 7 on VMware Cloud on Dell EMC delivers consistent security features with full lifecycle management. Business leaders will no longer need to monitor for potential vulnerabilities in VDI deployments. Automatic testing and rollout of security patches eliminate the requirements to maintain numerous testing and staging environments. This reduced downtime saves business leaders time and money.
