Flexibility to work everywhere

Operating System Virtualization

Microsoft Virtualization Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), powered by Windows Server 2012, empowers you to deploy remote desktop services architectures that provide employees the flexibility to work anywhere, while allowing them to seamlessly access their corporate windows desktop or application environment running in the datacenter from a range of devices. The features and unified management infrastructure for centralized desktops in Windows Server 2012, combined with application and user state virtualization technologies with System Center increases flexibility of access for remote desktops and applications, delivering personalized, consistent, and secure experiences for users, while also improving compliance through centralized control and access to confidential data.

VDI facilitates optimal use of hardware by enabling access to multiple Windows environments (Dev—Test, Business—Personal) from the same client device. They also enable organizations to pursue “Bring Your Own Device Programs” for employees, where they use their personally owned hardware for both personal and work. This helps IT to keep the corporate environment secure even when it is accessed from unmanaged devices. Windows Thin PC is another technology that leverages VDI technology by enabling customers to repurpose existing PCs as thin clients by providing a smaller footprint, locked down version of Windows 7.
