VDI / DaaS
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) or Desktop as a Service is a Windows 10 themed machine delivered from the Cloud. With Liit VDIs, you are free to install and use as you normally would your own Windows 10 desktop. It gives you the freedom to add performance and resources without having to upgrade any hardware.
How do they work?
We are all familiar with desktop or laptop machines – you probably use one daily. It’s the physical machine you use to carry out your work, which connects you to the network and server. A Cloud desktop has exactly the same functionality, but it’s hosted ‘in the Cloud’. This means you can connect to your Windows 10 machine from anywhere and with any device.
VDIs allow you to have unlimited access to a Windows 10 machine, which run in our Cloud. You can quickly connect from multiple devices and locations to your fully functional Windows desktop. The technology we use enables you to print and use USB devices attached to your local device. All of your data is stored securely at our datacenters and the connection is fully encrypted, ensuring your data is never compromised.
There are multiple options available, allowing you to share data seamlessly with other members of the organisation, such as shared storage and application servers.
The benefit of built-in disaster recovery and compliance
Without VDI, if your laptop were stolen, all of your local data, programs, settings, favourites, etc., would be lost with it. You may have a back-up, but the important data would be compromised and could easily fall into the wrong hands.
With a VDI, the device you use to access won’t hold any of that important data, or have your programs installed, making it a secure and simple solution in the event of a theft or disaster. Whatsmore, in the event of a disaster and your physical IT systems were out of action, you can connect to your Cloud Desktop via any web browser, to always keep your business operational.
