Tackling Work-From-Home Head On With HPE VDI Solutions

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has moved quickly to help customers adopt HPE virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions for work-at-home amid the coronavirus pandemic, said Saadat Malik, vice president of Internet of Things and Intelligent Edge Services.

In fact, HPE has seen an uptick in HPE VDI solutions around the globe in the wake of the pandemic, said Malik.

In North America, there has been considerable demand for VDI solutions based on Citrix and VMware along with collaboration offerings like Microsoft Teams and Skype, he said.

HPE also has seen stepped-up demand from retailers anxious to implement the HPE Virtual Remote Guidance (VRG) solution that allows an expert to remotely guide less experienced employees on retail operations including stocking and inventory, said Malik.

The pandemic has hit customers hard, essentially putting the “day-to-day running of their businesses in jeopardy,” said Malik.

HPE has responded with a GreenLake consumption-based pay-per-use offering, preconfigured Citrix or VMware VDI solutions for 80 to 2,000 workers, and special HPE Financial Services options that include a 90-day payment deferral or short-term rentals.

The ready-to-go bundles and financing are helping customers quickly move employees to a work-at-home scenario, said Malik.

“The key message here is we are partnering very closely with our customers to understand what their business requirements are and then addressing them very quickly,” he said.
