Managing an office full of computers and mobile devices is a nightmare especially in regulated industries. But with a virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI), employees can access all the features of a personal computer from almost any mobile device.
Microsoft recently announced that it’s revamping Outlook’s user interface and improving certain features. The redesign is aimed at decluttering the desktop version and align it with the much cleaner and more user-friendly iOS version. Mac and Windows users can look forward to a sleeker design, better features, and reduced complexity.
Server-hosted delivery of client applications is hardly new. Whether it was Microsoft Windows Terminal Services back in 1996 or the Remote Desktop Services of today, it has been around for a while now. With client virtualization, boundaries of traditional networks are done away with to allow rich client applications and environments to endpoints.
With the gradual integration of virtualization, many small and medium-sized businesses have seen many benefits that extend beyond their bottom line. Not only does it aid with cost efficiency but also with disaster recovery and several other areas of operations.
