Most IT departments are currently facing the challenge of enabling worker productivity on a growing number of mobile devices in the workplace. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a key technology that helps you to accommodate these new devices. By virtualizing resources, you can alleviate device compatibility and security issues while still delivering a consistent, familiar experience that enhances user productivity. With Windows Server 2012, Microsoft is making it even easier to
deploy and deliver virtual resources across workers’ devices.
VDI technologies in Windows Server 2012 offer easy access to a rich, full-fidelity Windows environment running in the datacenter, from virtually any device. Through Hyper-V and Remote Desktop Services, Microsoft offers three flexible VDI deployment options in a single solution: Pooled Desktops, Personal Desktops, and Remote Desktop Sessions (formerly Terminal Services).
Windows Server 2012 delivers on significant enhancements for VDI in this latest release.
One point of control to manage, configure, and deploy multiple virtual desktops and sessions, along with easier single-sign on administration.
Support for lower-cost storage hardware options like direct attached storage, eliminating the need to rely on expensive storage area networks.
A superior user experience with support for low-bandwidth, high-latency wide area networks, and new support for USB and multi-touch devices.
With Windows Server 2012, you get a complete VDI toolset for delivering flexible access to data and applications from virtually anywhere on popular devices, while also helping to maintain security and compliance.
