At Main Sail, our Virtualization team provides services, in conjunction with industry leading software, to clients tasked with reducing costs (via energy and hardware purchasing savings), improving IT security and efficiently developing Business solutions through server and/or desktop consolidation.
Server virtualization uses specially designed software; an organization can convert one physical server into multiple virtual machines. Each virtual server acts like a unique physical device, capable of running its own operating system (OS).
Virtual desktop infrastructure, sometimes referred to as virtual desktop interface (VDI) is the server model enabling desktop virtualization, encompassing the hardware and software systems required to support the virtualized environment. Many organizations implement this technology to store the resulting “virtualized” desktop on a server(s), instead of on the local disk storage on a client computer. This process is extremely cost effective resulting in lower total cost of ownership, improved reliability, increased security and increase flexibility. You can even access your work desktop from your tablet!
