The Stay Connected with Tech Data Series is designed to help our customers adapt to industry changes around virtual collaboration. Now, more than ever, the importance of staying connected with your team and your customers are important, so we hope you find the resources we provide in our series helpful.

 

Productivity and business continuity are essential and critical to every organization. Recently, we have experienced how businesses are shifting the way in which they traditionally operate, by enabling the workforce to be more remote.

Cloud governance as well as the need for application portability are also some of the trends driving the need for modern infrastructure and virtualization solutions that traditional data centers cannot meet.

First things first, what is Remote Desktop Services (RDS) ?

Remote Desktop Services provides server-hosted access to Windows-based applications and desktops, removing the need for applications to be installed and run locally on individual workstations. A Remote Desktop Services solution allows users to access and run their desktop and applications from the cloud, enabling remote worker efficiency or capabilities, while ensuring the organizations data stays secure.

Why Consider it?

Whether you are considering virtualization for meet today’s demands, or overall to enhance your cloud portfolio with future proof and scalable solutions, Remote Desktop Services provides organizations with a cost – effective, easy and flexible way to manage and control access to applications.

Great Solutions Deliver Greater Outcomes

Tech Data understands that cloud solutions may not always be as simple as they seem. 

Leveraging Microsoft’s best practices, as well as the expertise of our cloud architects, Tech Data has designed, and architected a Remote Desktop Services solution you can deploy in a matter of thirty minutes or less.

Tech Data’s Remote Desktop Services on Azure allows users to access everyday workloads and connect in a seamless way from virtually anywhere and anytime. Additionally, customers can customize the deployment to integrate with existing infrastructure or create a new environment in Azure with the ability to deploy and scale quickly while keeping the application and sensitive data safe.

You can scale your deployment depending on the expected need of each type of user: carry out data entry on lightweight apps, manipulate large datasheets with productivity apps like

Office, or work with heavy-duty engineering or graphics apps like CAD software.

Here are 6 key benefits this solution provides:

  • Enable users: Leverage the compute power of Windows Server to provide a cost-effective multi-session environment to drive your users’ everyday workloads. Allow end users to connect seamlessly every time.
  • Manage Access: Specify individual applications hosted/run on the virtualized machines but appear as if they’re running on the user’s desktop like local applications.
  • Protect assets and users: Improved security by using Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), ideal for deploying and managing key applications in a secure, remote environment.
  • Cost effective: Helps reduce infrastructure maintenance cost for on-premises servers.
  • Stability: Increased stability by using Azure services to ensure high availability.
  • Increased efficiency: Improve user experience by using existing identities to access resources, while allowing users to work with those resources and customize their own desktops.
