Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI): How to Scale and Optimize for Today's Realities

In a constantly changing world, the business imperative to equip your workforce with the ability to work from remote locations as part of your business resiliency strategy has never been more urgent.

In this solution brief by VMware and Intel, find out how diverse organizations around the world – from a U.S. college, to a Swedish health center, to a German municipal sanitation company – have successfully implemented virtual desktop solutions.

Learn how recent technology advances reduce TCO per VDI user by up to 16% while supporting up to 87% more virtual desktops.

VMware and Intel provide IT organizations a path to digital transformation, delivering consistent infrastructure and consistent operations across data centers and public clouds to accelerate application speed and agility for business innovation and growth.

  • How Lenovo’s ThinkAgile MX Certified Nodes are improving IT

    “I wish IT was simpler.” “I need to do more with my budget.” “I want better performance and reliability.”

    If these sentiments sound familiar, it may be time for a turnkey hyperconverged infrastructure.

    Checkout this data sheet to learn about Lenovo ThinkAgile MX Certified Nodes which combine ThinkSystem servers, Microsoft Azure Stack HCI software, and powerful Intel Xeon processors into a single-license solution.

  • Datacentre Management

    While many enterprises seek to downsize their datacentre management responsibilities through increasing their use of cloud, some organisations – for regulatory and operational reasons – will need to retain a server farm for many years to come.

    For companies in this situation, finding ways to continually improve the efficiency and performance of their datacentres, through the adoption of good management and monitoring protocols, is of utmost importance, and can also help reduce the risk of downtime occurring.

    That said, joint research published by Intel and Siemens earlier this year suggests around one-in-ten datacentre operators have no such systems in place, putting them at increased risk of outages, system errors and other performance-related issues.

    In this e-guide, we’ve pulled together some of the latest thinking on good datacentre management practice, while shining a light on the tools and technologies that are on the market (or in the pipeline) that can help enterprises run their facilities with greater ease and agility.
