We have the highest level of certification for VMware and multiple Master SAN architects giving you comfort in our overall abilities. We also give you superior security. Quick client deployment. Ease of scale. Improved desktop standardization. Superior back-ups and disaster recovery. Simple manageability. Remote user support. Virtual desktop benchmarking. And lower costs, to boot. We’re not interested in over-complicating things. We can help you determine the lowest cost, lowest risk, best solution for you. We often find ourselves competing with IT Service giants. The difference is our near 100% customer satisfaction.
We have implemented a broad range of Virtual Desktop solutions including VMware Blade (VDI — Virtual Desktop Infrastructure), Citrix Desktop Broker, and PC Blade solutions (such as HP’s CCI — Consolidated Client Infrastructure).
Using Virtual Desktop, companies host and centrally manage desktop virtual servers in their data center while offering end users a full desktop experience that can be accessed anytime and anywhere. The benefits of Virtual Desktop implementations are numerous and include superior security, rapid client deployment, ease of scale, improved desktop standardization, superior back-ups and disaster recovery, simplified manageability, uncomplicated remote user support, and significantly lower costs.
So, if there are so many benefits, why isn’t everyone implementing Virtual Desktops? First, even though the technology has been around for the past six years, it is only in the past couple years or so that Virtual Desktops have become a mainstream technology. Second, most potential customers are not up-to-speed on the latest software developments that have made Virtual Desktops more appealing such as software offered by Altiris, Check Point, HP Opsware, BladeLogic, Leostream, PlateSpin and Vizioncore.
OST offers a Virtual Desktop Assessment to determine if Virtual Desktops are a sound fit for your corporation. The assessment takes into consideration your current desktop administrative processes, application mix, performance characteristics, antivirus and application update practices, end user mobility needs, and storage requirements. The next step, if Virtual Desktop is a viable solution for your organization, is to determine the Virtual Desktop technology that best addresses your unique requirements. Once the specific technology has been determined, OST will architect the entire solution for you in the form of a quotation.
OST also offers a Virtual Desktop Benchmarking Service that tests the assumptions made in the planning process in a live environment. This service is provided at your site and includes loaner hardware and software exclusively for Virtual Desktop benchmarking. The results of the benchmark tests are used in refining your final Virtual Desktop solution.
Application virtualization segregates the operating system from the application, allowing a single instance of the application to be used virtually anywhere and at any time. With application virtualization an application can be managed from a single central location. Updates to an application can be installed once, and then deployed to hundreds of clients in an instant.
