How do you want employees to access your business network? An increasing number of businesses are switching partially or even fully to a virtual desktop model. Doing so comes with a lot of different benefits, but you also need to be aware of all the potential issues that you might face. When it comes time for you to make the decision about switching to a virtual model, you should consider the following logistical issues, which should help make sure you get set up right.
What is a Virtual Desktop?
The term “virtual desktop” gets its name from the fact that when a user logs in, they aren’t accessing the desktop that is local to their own computer. Instead, all users in a group or organization access a remotely stored desktop interface. This means that everybody’s desktop experience is the same and that resources are shared. For small companies or groups that work off-site, this can be a great way of getting the software needs that a specific job requires without having to individually purchase, download, and install that software for each machine. There is also a shared desktop experience in this model, so every employee knows exactly how the core system works.
