Unidesk A Genius At VDI, Tackles Windows Migration Issues Too


Some organizations are born with a virtualized desktop infrastructure, some achieve it and others have it thrust upon them. Those in the latter two categories might also be simultaneously grappling with Windows migration issues such as the retention of user applications and personalization settings, and the massive storage and management hurdles that come along with any centralized solution, be it virtualization or otherwise.

The CRN Test Center has been looking at a solution from Unidesk that works with most virtualization brokers and employs a system of layering to reduce the cost and complexity of virtualized desktop infrastructure deployments. Unidesk tackles the issues of personalization and user-installed apps, offers centralized desktop and application management and monitoring, and massively reduces the storage needs for organizations deploying VDI by sharing operating system and application bits across multiple VDI users.
