To implement a desktop virtualization platform some minimum components at hardware level are necessary. The essential requirements are a server infrastructure, a network architecture, storage and client devices:

-Server Infrastructure. It consists of the necessary servers with enough processing and physical memory capacity for hosting the hypervisor layer, which will assign the necessary hardware resources to the virtual desktops.

-Network electronics. This will allow for interconnection between the different platform components. Network architecture for a VDI platform can be very complex, so it’s crucial that these components are of the highest quality.

-Storage infrastructure. Formed by the necessary hard drive cabinet or cabinets, with sufficient capacity and disk access speed for hosting both the virtual desktops deployed and the data, shared or otherwise, of the virtual desktops deployed.

-Client devices. The devices that will be used to connect to the virtual desktops. Generally, we will define whether they are fixed computers, laptops, thin clients, zero clients or even mobile devices.

In addition to the hardware components it is also necessary to bear in mind that it is necessary to have at least a few software components at the time of launching in production a VDI environment . Stay tuned to our blog because we will talk about them in upcoming posts.

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.

Let’s get started.
