By Nextrio on August 17th, 2012 Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmailby feather

Over the past few years, businesses have updated their operations to center around sophisticated software and networks. One of the latest pieces of technology to hit the business world is VMware desktop virtualization.

Desktop virtualization basically allows an organization to update all computers from one central location. This setup also gives workers the ability to securely access their important files and applications from a mobile device or remote computer. Here’s a brief look at desktop virtualization and how it can benefit your business:

Reduced operating costs

Most office environments need several IT personnel buzzing around, configuring the network and addressing various computer issues. With VMware desktop virtualization, however, sophisticated virtual machine templates reduce the role of IT personnel, thus reducing labor and overall operating costs.  

Efficient system updates

Now that technology is advancing faster than ever, the average piece of software sees dozens of updates in a given year. Instead of updating each computer individually, VMware desktop virtualization allows IT administrators to instantly distribute updates through a network. It also bypasses the labor-intensive task of recoding applications in order to bring them up to the latest standards.    

Heightened data security

Unfortunately, software developers aren’t the only clever ones. There are many hackers out there who can jeopardize a business’ data and systems. Desktop virtualization can prevent malware and viruses while still giving employees full use of their applications. VM (virtual machine) files can also be encrypted to protected valuable company data.

Streamlined growth

Every time an office updates its computers and software, it experiences some lost productivity and down time. Luckily, VM files contain the appropriate operating system, drivers, and applications to get new computers up and running in no time. If you’re looking to expand your business quickly, you’ll find that VMware provides the means to do so.
