There is a lot of hype and marketing messages about VDI and the “cloud” that seem to be driven by vendor agendas versus well understood values for organizations. OST has a completeness of vision, and our comprehensive Private Cloud for Desktops solution focuses first on your business and end-user needs.
We understand that to meet the needs of corporations, the ultimate solution must be more that Pod Infrastructure – servers, storage, network, and virtualization software – because these decisions often do not have much implication on end-point usage – and that is where much value can be gained. There are many solution components, typically outside the domain of the data center that are critical to end-user workflow, efficiencies, and experiences. Decisions that must be made include end-point device, middleware, and virtual enabling technologies. OST makes vendor-independent recommendations for all solution components so that the end result brings the desired value to your organizaion.
We start with a Readiness Assessment to determine if a Private Cloud for Desktops solution is a sound fit for your organization. The assessment starts with understanding your business drivers and objectives. Your desired business and administrative processes, application mix, performance characteristics, antivirus and application update practices, end user mobility needs, and storage requirements are all considered. A vision of the end-state is crafted with you, and then we help you determine what technologies and budgets you’ll need over time to realize that vision. Pilot, deployment, and managed services offerings are all a part of OST’s Private Cloud for Desktop solution. We are also prepared to address governance, license management, and disaster recovery for desktop needs.
OST has designed and deployed Private Cloud for Desktops solutions since 2006, and we have helped organizations in multiple industries realize their objectives using a variety of hardware and software technologies.
