So how does SnapVDI work?

SnapVDI is a complete and secure VDI computing solution that scales from 25 users up to thousands. Unlike most VDI component-based products, SnapVDI is shipped as a “Ready-to-Deploy” solution that makes implementing VDI quick and simple. SnapVDI was architected to leverage the latest virtual desktop technologies while keeping in mind the upmost security measures to mitigate cyber threats and ensure data privacy.

Most multi-vendor virtual desktop implementations fail due to the complexity and high cost associated with the project. Hundreds of users have shared their desire for VDI, but expressed concerns over the roadblocks they had experienced during past VDI evaluations. SnapVDI resolves these common concerns by providing a complete VDI solution from a single vendor which guarantees greater user experience, higher data security, and a streamlined technical support process.

Above are the six main components of the SnapVDI solution:

VDI Made Simple

SnapVDI is engineered to provide the ultimate user experience and data security. Class-leading performance and end-to-end security measures come standard with SnapVDI, while the virtual desktops can be booted up in mere seconds. SnapVDI requires a minimal infrastructure to deploy, as all of the virtual machines can operate in a 1 Gb network. In most cases, SnapVDI can be seamlessly deployed in the existing IT infrastructure – avoiding the hassle and expense of adding complex storage and backend infrastructure to support a VDI deployment. Moreover, the entire VDI environment can be up and running in just a few hours. Another key benefit is a significant reduction in power consumption, as SnapVDI thin clients typically use just 5-7 Watts of power on average. Finally, the manageability software is built into the solution, so administrators can install, upgrade and secure hundreds of nodes from one central, remote location.

Secure


Simultaneously simplify user management while enhancing network security. Using SnapVDI Manager, administrators can control and lock individual USB ports and rollout mass security updates to hundreds of users with just a few clicks. User templates can also be created to streamline the creation of numerous users at a time – giving administrators the freedom to skip the tedium of individual desktop setups.

Performance


Don’t sacrifice size for performance. With a form factor a fraction of traditional desktops, the SnapVDI Secure Client leverages a 1GHz processor, 4GB eMMC flash, and 512MB of DRAM to deliver the blazing performance and unparalleled reliability your users need. The secure client also boasts dual-monitor display capabilities and a high quality 1920×1200 maximum resolution to accommodate high-end visual demands.

Green


Compared to traditional desktops which can require upwards of 100W, the SnapVDI Secure Client uses only 5W under a standard load – generating continuous energy savings immediately upon installation. The client is also RoHS compliant and EnergyStar certified to guarantee the most efficient, environmentally-friendly solution available.

Scalable


Integrate at your own rate. SnapVDI Secure Clients are easily deployed and managed – from small scale test environments to corporate-wide installations. With support for multiple network speeds and a standard VESA mounting kit, the secure clients are seamlessly added to your network as you grow and can be mounted on existing desktop monitors to drive down upfront costs.
