Desktop Virtualization

When it comes to desktop virtualization, the choice of consultant and integrator is as critical as the technology an organization chooses.

GreenPages Helps DDJ Capital Management Plan for the Future

Christopher Varner, CTO, DDJ Capital Management

DDJ Capital Management uses GreenPages to create a roadmap for its future around virtual desktops, network infrastructure, and more.

Desktop Virtualization—or more broadly virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)—is a solution, not a product. It involves numerous moving parts that all have their own technical and business considerations: connection brokering, provisioning, profile management, hypervisor, storage, hardware, software delivery, disaster recovery, backup, security, monitoring, and management.

Because VDI is not a one-size-fits-all proposition, GreenPages provides clients with methodical analysis and planning to determine the best strategy for their organization. VDI environments are complex and can be difficult to scale if not designed properly. GreenPages’ experts understand how a virtual desktop implementation affects the entire IT environment and can help organizations leverage existing license agreements, management tools, network equipment, storage, and other infrastructure components.

Business Drivers:

  • Planning a Windows migration
  • Remote access challenges
  • Desktop refresh plans
  • Pressures to support smart phones and tablets
  • Security and compliance concerns
  • Too much time rolling out new applications and patching

A major barrier to desktop virtualization is the difficulty calculating ROI simply using capital budget numbers. GreenPages helps clients understand and compare the true costs of managing physical desktops with the management improvements resulting from VDI.
