The Next Evolution In Computing

Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) August 04, 2011

Imagine having accesses to your data from anywhere, anytime. Imagine your data is safe and secure, there is no risk of having proprietary data fall into the wrong hands. Even if the device you are using is a tablet. Imagine having a brand new computer every day! Is this a dream come true? According to Layer8 Technology, a provider of integrated information and communications technology solutions and services, the answer is yes, the virtual desktop interface (VDI) is just that.

?VDI is changing the way people are thinking about computing,? says Layer8 Technology’s Program Manager, Mike Cheatham. ?There will always be a need for conventional desktop, and mobile device for specific users, but VDI has matured to the point where it demands organizations to take a hard look at what it can provide, not only in convenience and security, but cost savings.?

Research firm Gartner recently compared the TCO of personal computers versus what they term server-based computing (SBC). According to their findings, “The TCO of an SBC deployment used to deliver all applications to users is 8 percent to 13 percent lower than that of a locked and well-managed PC deployment, and up to 44 to 47 percent lower than that of an unmanaged desktop deployment.”

Virtual computing has been around for many years and has found its place in large organizations, but due to the cost of implementation and management, small to midsize organizations can not afford it. ?Through our virtuaL8 Service, we’re bringing the power of virtual computing to mid-sized companies seeking greater flexibility while reducing IT complexity and cost? says Layer8 Technology’s President and founder, George Koepplinger.
