With a mix of virtual PCs and remote workers, desktop management is a challenge for IT administrators. The advent of mobile devices and BYOD (bring-your-own-device) environments adds to the complexity. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and remote desktop service (RDS) tackle these challenges by effectively delivering remote desktops and virtual applications across all endpoints. VDI allows users to securely run their desktops on their own virtual machines, while RDS provides the flexibility to remotely access desktops and networks efficiently. According to Wikibon, 68-77% of organizations have deployed VDI, and a few more are strongly considering the implementation of VDI environments in the near future.
Remote Desktop Service Challenges
With the rise of RDP networks, employees tend to use their own devices to connect to remote networks. In a BYOD environment, security is the biggest concern, so businesses have to gain control over all endpoints before setting up a BYOD network. Moreover, IT guys have to manage a variety of endpoints effectively, to provide customized remote network solutions to users while delivering a consistent end-user experience. Businesses therefore need powerful remote desktop software that provides a comprehensive desktop management solution from a single dashboard. 2X Remote Application Server (2X RAS) aptly meets this requirement.
