PA Technologies provides virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) managed services to its clients, fully configured and supported with unlimited hosted desktops and thin client devices for end user access

Typically, desktop procurement and deployment is a lengthy process that entails the ongoing administrative burden of per-device configuration, application installation, management and maintenance. Implementing a VDI centralises desktop management; by hosting virtual desktop machines in the data centre, the end-user environment becomes scalable, secure and far easier to support.

PA Technologies delivers virtual desktop infrastructure as part of its managed services portfolio with 24x7 monitoring.

Desktop virtualisation provides end users with a seamless, always-on desktop experience that can be accessed remotely via SSL or VPN. By modelling a clients’ standard corporate desktop and converting it into a virtual instance, a template is created to allow rapid provisioning of virtual desktops, dramatically reducing related cost and resource requirements.

Virtual Desktop As A service

The desktop is also an area that is often exposed from a security perspective – there have been a number of high profile instances where critical or sensitive data held at the desktop level has been exposed to improper or illegal use. In a hosted desktop environment, key data is stored centrally in the datacentre, mitigating this risk; furthermore, associated backup and recovery processes for the virtual desktop infrastructure can include replication to a second data centre if required for the highest levels of resilience and availability in the event of a disruption to your office locations.

PA Technologies can also provide a rapid VDI Proof of Concept that can be tailored specifically to include selected applications.
