Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is an advanced desktop computing architecture that seamlessly centralizes the desktop applications and operating system on Virtual Machines (VM), running on a shared physical server in the core data center. Compared to the earlier Terminal Services setup, the VDI desktop computing delivers unmatched capabilities of the native Windows desktop to the users.
Usually, large enterprises deploy VDI to streamline their user management needs and eliminate the repetitive and cost incurring activities. But unlike Terminal Services deployments, which are simply endpoint devices purchases and setups, most VDI deployments require the customer to source endpoint VDI device, connection broker, management tool, and VDI protocol from different vendors. This increases the complexity and overall cost of the entire VDI exercise. Additionally, it requires trained teams to handle the architecture setup, and post deployment, services from multiple vendors is neither in-sync with each other, nor real-time response oriented. Small and mid-sized enterprises, schools, and institutions may be challenged by a lack of human resources and a budget to cater to the growing demands of ever-evolving business needs and customers. As such, they require a simple and cost-effective solution to power their business.
Catering to the demands of SMBs, SUNDE launched the first-ever cost-saving, easy yet robust and high-performance VDI solution to help schools and SMBs face the challenge of budgetary and human resource constraints in the implementation and maintenance of VDI .
SUNDE’s comprehensive VDI solution includes Diana zero client, which is typically small with no storage, moving parts, OS, CPU, or software, facilitating less energy consumption. It prevents data loss since it is tamper-proof and does not store data locally. It does not require patch management, OS licensing fees, updates or management software, thus, cutting down deployment and maintenance costs. For managing SUNDE Diana zero clients, the SUNDE vPointServer software is the connection broker and management console. One of the key features and benefits of SUNDE VDI technology is their innovative and smart protocol that offers an enhanced PC experience.
SUNDE-VDI technology is strategically designed to be cost-centric, high-performance, and straightforward, catering to the diversified needs of SMBs that typically are on a shoe-string budget and resources for a useful VDI deployment and management. The key features of SUNDE VDI solution for school and SMBs encompass:
– Minimalist Upfront Cost – The SUNDE client device is available at a price at par with other client devices in the market, while the backend software is typically available for free.
– Improved Security & Reduced Managedment – stateless SUNDE zero clients reduce significant costs of energy and replacement cycle, as well as, eliminate client security threats and management burdens.
– Enhanced User Experience – The VDI solution from SUNDE provides PC-experience, with full-screen videos and rich multimedia. It enhances the user experience consistently; without the need for complex and expensive protocol extension or GPU configuration on the client or host side.
– Simple to Deploy and Manage – Unlike other VDI solutions, the company provides a technology system that is extremely simple to deploy and manage, and does not require skilled expertise.
– Dedicated Post-Deployment Services – The company consistently works towards improving its VDI experience, achieving continuous upgrades at no additional cost.
