Think once, think twice, re-think VDI
VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) is the latest buzz in the IT world offering the twin benefits of cash savings and reduction of environmental impact, but is VDI the right choice for every company?
Thinhat, a new player in the IT virtualization world is suggesting a path into virtualization that meets the SMEs’ needs for improved performance and security without busting increasingly tight IT budgets.
Demetri Morosan, Business Development Director at Thinhat, explains, “The typical path into VDI requires replacement of the whole IT infrastructure including new servers, new thin clients and other upfront expenses.
“What we are proposing is a solution that recycles existing PCs converting them into thin clients, centralizes their administration on a server and deploys the infrastructure to the business. This delivers a virtualized environment without the high implementation costs of VDI.
“By doing this we can dramatically reduce the upfront cost while delivering the traditional benefits of VDI such as reduced maintenance and lower running costs.”
Thinhat’s proposed solution delivers an alternative to VDI suitable for SMEs with reduced IT budgets. At the same time Thinhat can deliver full-blown VDI solutions.
To help companies decide whether or not they should follow the VDI path, Thinhat has devised a quick online audit which guides you through a number of questions and ranks your company’s suitability for VDI and alternative solutions.
The audit is free of charge and can be completed online in as little as 5 minutes at http://www.thinhat.com/
