Virtual Desktops and the Business Benefits

Surrey virtual desktop services.

Amongst the many IT support services offered from our HQ in Surrey, virtual desktops, or Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), attract a lot of attention.

A virtual desktop is basically a computer workspace that exists on a remote server rather than a physical device. You can access this virtual workspace from any device, like a laptop, tablet, or even a phone, as long as you have an internet connection. A virtual desktop functions in much the same manner as a regular computer desktop, but all the processing power and data storage happen on the server.

One way to think of virtual desktop, is as your personal work environment stored in the cloud and accessible from any device, anywhere.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

For local businesses, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) goes beyond the single device and supports the whole of your organisation. Through virtualisation, your whole team can access their individual user profiles through the cloud.

Here at PurpleJelly, as a Microsoft Solutions Partner (MSP) we provide virtualisation via Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). Using Microsoft’s virtual desktop offers numerous benefits for your staff, such as:

  • The ability to work remotely.
  • Provision of different types of virtual desktop environments for different teams in your business.
  • Simple to deploy and configure on demand.
  • Ring-fenced security and compliance.
  • Flexible and easy to scale.
  • Cost effective.

With all of your team having the same experience as if they were using a physical desktop, they can work remotely and securely.

More Benefits of Virtual Desktop

Diving deeper into the benefits of AVD, your VDI cloud platform is the perfect solution for:

  • Enhanced Security: Data is centralized on secure servers, minimizing the risk of breaches on individual devices. This is especially beneficial for businesses in regulated industries.
  • Improved Flexibility: Employees can work from anywhere with an internet connection, making remote work or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs more feasible.
  • Simplified Management: Our IT support team can centrally manage and deploy software updates on the server, saving time and ensuring everyone has the latest applications.
  • Reduced Hardware Costs: VDI eliminates the need for high-powered desktops for every employee. Businesses can use lower-cost terminals or even personal devices to access the virtual desktops.
  • Increased Scalability: As your business grows, adding new users is simply a matter of provisioning additional virtual desktops on the server.

PurpleJelly IT have been deploying virtual desktops in Surrey and the home counties for a number of years now and our team of Microsoft certified experts will guide you through the whole process.
