Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Specialized, test or simply secondary workstations can be provided virtually to any staff, or to address certain student situations, via our VDI service.

Highly customized or very basic Windows workstations can be provided, running most any application on whatever Windows operating system configuration is required. Access is provided via the web, or RDP making this the ideal environment for anything not easily done on your primary workstation, whether it is running Windows, Mac OS or something else.

Possibilities exist for very secure environments as well as providing access to an application running remotely, but appearing as if it were locally installed. It also provides an easy way to trial a new or different Windows OS release without affecting your current work environment.
