I still remember the time when computer was first allocated in offices to make the entire process computerized. From manual to digital and now virtual, time has changed and given lot of new technologies to work on.
Virtual desktop more or less same like your computer as it has exact same screen, mouse, keyboard etc. run web browser, runs an application, access email and all the stuffs that you may be doing on your pc. All the softwares like ms word, office, excel and others do work in virtual desktop same as in traditional computer. The only exception is it provide all these services with the great benefits of a cloud hosted virtual desktop.
Virtual desktop is not more than an image that IT people have configured it to look like on the company’s main server. This configuration includes all the application that employee will be needing to perform its job precisely.
Here are some roles that virtual desktop play towards business mobility effectively :-
Cut down the cost
It keep the cost bit down than traditional computer. However, you will be needing all the necessary accessories that a computer require such as keyboard, mouse, screen but you won’t have to purchase CPU for the same. Employees can simply log into their terminal and rearrange the application appearance installed on pc. Still, the basic interface will remain the same for all users.
Work without interruption
Now, employees of the company won’t get affected by the problem of getting computer crashed due to software problem. The only condition where work of the company can get interrupted, when the main server get failed or application goes down.
Customizable desktop version
You have option to create desktop as per the user need. IT person is able to create more than 1 version of virtual desktop based on the requirements of the employees. For example- manager will be needing more applications than a writer. Technical person can make available more application for manager without company need to purchase as many as software licenses.
Updation is easier
Updation of application was a long process for IT people on desktop as they need to go on each and every machine to update the application. Virtual desktops are faster and perform more task than the traditional desktops. In order to update, the tech people just need to change the virtual desktop image.
Old computers tends to crash and end up losing all the essential data that we saved on it. This can cost business loss more than anything as all the essentials documents are saved digitally in computer hard drive. The benefit of using virtual desktop is all the data and images are saved in data center securely without worrying about getting lost or hacked.
The advantages of choosing virtual desktop over traditional computer is uncountable at the same time you are going ahead in terms of technology. It just not cut down the cost or work of employees but it also take company forward towards its objectives as the force of the business is get focused on goals instead of additional work.
