Hyper-converged storage systems are emerging as an ideal option for a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), since they allow providers to manage all configuration options. The system can be preconfigured with the type of storage and adequate networks, so virtual desktops work properly. In addition, having a single contact for support also facilitates the work of the administrator.

In this type of storage, all parts of the system are designed to work together and they are optimized for a specific type of virtualization (server virtualization or VDI). This makes it fairly simple to start with a small pilot and then update it and expand it to support the entire organization.

Desktop virtualization provides significant benefits to the IT department, since the administrator, rather than having to work on each PC, can handle from the server clients, updates and security configuration. Moreover, hiper-converged systems also simplify administration, so that the reduced management and maintenance will produce long-term savings.

Another issue that should be taken into account when choosing the storage for VDI is that they must endure a high number of users working at the same time, since usually in most companies nearly all employees switch on computers at the same time. As part of the hiper-converged systems is based on flash, latency is considerably reduced in these cases.

In short, hyper-converged storage may be an excellent solution for VDI because it removes the configuration handicaps sometimes associated to desktop virtualization.

VDI: The most secure environment for hybrid working

Today is Data Privacy Day. The purpose of this date is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. It was initiated by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and the Data Protection authorities of the European Union’s member states. Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
