vGRID desktop

Control your workstation deployment

The same flexibility, freedom and operational models available for your virtual server infrastructure are available for your desktops. The technology required to achieve this has matured at a fantastic rate, so now you can enjoy all the benefits of a high-performance desktop environment without the inherent physical hardware risks and capital costs.

Many design and engineering companies leverage the global talent pool in times of tight deadlines or an influx of work, but this can come at a cost of efficiency and at a risk of obsolete data.

Imagine you have a designer half-way around the world working on your project, they need a copy of your design files and shared objects library in order to work locally on their workstation. No sooner have you sent these files to the designer they become obsolete because your own team are constantly updating them. On top of this you are sending your highly valuable intellectual property (or your clients) offshore, no longer protected by the data sovereignty laws of New Zealand.

You can have designers all over the world but your data remains right here.

Types of vGRID Desktop

Not all desktop users have equal requirements, you have a range of user types from basic office apps (Word, Excel, Outlook) through to high-end design workstations running 3D apps (Solidworks, Autodesk, Maya, 3DSM).
