It seems like nearly all IT Managers have either considered implementing VDI or have deployed the technology at some point during their career. We all know the advantages of VDI: ease of management, increased worker uptime, power savings, greater security and versatility, among others. When considering VDI, IT Managers are deterred by the headache of dealing with multiple vendors for their new solution. This can make the implementation process confusing, complicated, and expensive. Having different vendors for your servers, SAN appliances, and thin or zero clients is time consuming and can be a pain in the you know what for IT Managers. That’s why All-In-One VDI solutions were created.
One “Throat to Choke”
Rather than communicating with multiple vendors for troubleshooting, with an all-in-one solution, IT Managers only have one “throat to choke.” With a multi-vendor solution, contacting several providers can take hours upon end to get a simple problem solved. Figuring out where the problem is in your environment is a thing of the past. Dealing with five different vendors pointing fingers at one another to find the issue at hand is no longer a concern. With an all-in-one solution, you now only have to deal with ONE vendor. This is great, but it is especially beneficial if that vendor has a dedicated support representative specifically designated to you. Just think if you were able to contact one individual for any issues that arise in your entire VDI infrastructure. Questions or problems with your servers, SAN device, or thin client can all be answered by one person. Talk about simple!
All-in-one solutions are specifically built for VDI, and the entire infrastructure is engineered to work together. Being purpose built for VDI leads to better performance, much better than that of a bolt-on solution that was not engineered for VDI. When all parts of a VDI solution understand each other, you see higher performance and higher reliability. In addition, with an all-in-one VDI solution you only have one single installation, and these solutions are typically shipped as a ready to deploy brick which makes implementing VDI quick and simple. If you need to expand, you can do so via additional bricks as well.
All-in-One VDI solutions require a very simple infrastructure to run, and plug directly into your network as ready to deploy (RTD). Not only do you avoid the hassle of reworking your entire office space with complex storage and backend infrastructure, but the entire VDI can be up and running in just a few hours.
With an all-in-one solution, you’re getting your entire VDI infrastructure from one vendor. Just think of this as buying in bulk. By doing so, you are able to implement VDI at a lower price point than by picking and choosing multiple vendors for your deployment. The entire VDI solution is purchased all at once, and you are able to get VDI for a lower price that piece-mealing a VDI solution.
