Posted by Meghan Simmons on Oct 18, 2016

Medical centers and hospitals rely on IT to provide clinicians with the right technology to deliver the best possible patient care. To continuously improve the patient experience, hospitals are turning to Citrix for Windows workspace delivery, RES for workspace security and personalization, Nutanix for hyperconverged infrastructure, and Unidesk for application packaging and lifecycle management. Our partner RES just published a new case study on Cook Children's Health Care System that explains why Citrix, RES, Nutanix and Unidesk are such a trusted combination in healthcare.

How to transition VDI management to Tier 1 IT staff

Posted by Tom Rose on Nov 6, 2014

This blog is an excerpt from the Unidesk eBook Ten Quick Tips for Scaling VMware Horizon View.

Virtual desktop deployments are often managed, at first, by the same Tier 2 or 3 IT staff members who designed and implemented VDI. However, keeping day-to-day management in the hands of server and network administrators or outside consultants is not scalable. Not only will you be paying more to manage virtual desktops than physical PCs (tossing ROI out the window in the process), but you will also lose valuable IT resources from forward-facing, strategic IT projects. If you transition VDI to the same Tier 1 staff who managed your PCs, you'll be able to scale your VDI deployment at a lower cost.
