With Unidesk and VDI, Snow Day Means Business As Usual for Leading Law Firm

Posted by TJ Racherla on Mar 10, 2016

Unidesk law firm customer Ober Kaler was recently featured in the Maryland Daily Record for the advanced mobile access they’re granting their employees with virtual desktops and Unidesk application management software.

The article, Because of technology, snow day means business as usual explains how the recent “snowmageddon” in Baltimore had no effect on Ober Kaler’s business operations and client service. Attorneys and staff worked from home with access to all applications, even though the firm's office was officially closed on the day of the storm.

What Do These 3 Successful VDI Deployments Have in Common?

Posted by TJ Racherla on Mar 4, 2016

We kicked off the New Year with three awesome customer webinars in our End User Computing Customer Webinar Series, which spotlights IT professionals who are modernizing their Windows workspaces with the help of Unidesk application lifecycle management technology.

Even though all three customers are using three different connectivity solutions (Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, Citrix XenDesktop, and VMware Horizon), and two different virtualization platforms (Hyper-V and vSphere), their VDI deployments have one technology in common: Unidesk.

Unidesk's openness should not come as a surprise. We're known for our numerous customer successes with VMware Horizon. We're also known for being Microsoft's image management partner for scaling Microsoft VDI on Hyper-V and making it easy to move Windows apps to the cloud with Azure RemoteApp. Our innovations for Citrix have also been in the news lately, and many Citrix customers with large XenApp farms are already making enterprise commitments to Unidesk.

In case you missed it, here's how the 3 customers are using Unidesk with their chosen infrastructure and end user computing platforms. The full webinar recordings let you listen to your peers explain how they are making application and desktop management easier for their IT organizations, while delivering fast, secure 24x7 access to Windows apps for their end users.

Gridstore and Unidesk Webinar: Q&A Answers and VDI Survey Results

Posted by Kelly Murphy, Gridstore and Tom Rose, Unidesk on Nov 24, 2015

This is a joint blog by Kelly Murphy, Founder and CTO, Gridstore and Tom Rose, Chief Marketing Officer, Unidesk.

We had a great time the other day presenting on a very interactive webinar with Dave Kawula, Microsoft MVP. The topic was Breakthrough Economics for VDI – how Gridstore HyperConverged Infrastructure coupled with Unidesk application layering technology and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) enable virtual desktops to be implemented for far less than the cost of physical PCs - $550 per user “all-in.”

We were asked many, many questions during the webinar and while we answered a lot, there were still a number that we didn’t get to. We’ve put together the answers to those questions as well as the results of our VDI survey in this blog. Dave also presented a live demo of the Gridstore/Unidesk VDI solution. If you weren’t able to attend, we highly recommend you watch the webinar replay to learn how your business can benefit from this solution.

VDI Webinar: Montgomery County Brings App Mobility to 3,000 Users

Posted by TJ Racherla on Aug 27, 2015

Customer success and satisfaction is at the heart of what we do at Unidesk. We believe that regularly featuring our customers' VDI journeys will not only educate other IT professonals who are exploring innovative technologies for Windows app mobility but also help them learn from each other as they implement desktop and application virtualization.

That's why we're so excited about our next customer webinar with Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Deploying VDI at scale is always of interest. Our webinar with Sunrise Health has been one of our most widely-watched customer webinars on-demand largely because it is a 3,000 user deployment. Like Sunrise Health, Montgomery County is deploying 3,000 desktops to its employees. As the third largest county in Pennsylvania and home to major employers in the pharmaceutical, banking, manufacturing, and healthcare sectors, they are turning to the combination of Unidesk, VMware Horizon View, and Tintri to improve service delivery and IT efficiency.
