Organizations look to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and virtual applications to improve security, increase employee productivity, simplify desktop operations, and reduce costs. With the cloud, organizations turn to a digital workspace transformation for those benefits plus the elasticity and facilities reduction of the cloud. They can even take advantage of a full workspace transformation to dramatically reduce the infrastructure burden of desktop management.
NetApp enables organizations to achieve those benefits by overcoming challenges associated with the cloud, including the migration of persistent desktops and home directory data from on-premises, supporting roaming users from cloud region to cloud region, vendor lock-in, and hybrid VDI requirements. Read on to discover how NetApp services can enhance virtual desktop capabilities.
There are several applications and methods of providing desktop and application virtualization in the cloud. They range from the infrastructure you manage for desktop and/or application virtualization, to fully managed desktops as a service. Since 2007 NetApp has partnered with the leading providers of virtual desktop software to power successful implementations including:
While there is a variety of methods and vendors, they all need files shares for the users’ data and profiles. Azure NetApp Files and Cloud Volumes Service are fast, simple to use, reliable and powerful file services and data management in the largest clouds in the world. Customers can now securely move their desktops to the cloud in a shorter amount of time and still ensure the desktops are performant, secure, available and economical.
Some organizations prefer to implement roaming profiles so that as workers move from one region to another they always have access to their instance in a location close to them so that the user experience is still good. For roaming profiles, organizations need a way to move the profiles and data. NetApp’s Cloud Volumes ONTAP provides a powerful infrastructure with the APIs and partner integrations to simply transfer the end users profile and data from one cloud region to another.
