Secure Virtual Desktops
What is Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)?
VDI uses virtual machines to provide remote desktop services on a centralised server, leading to multiple benefits for businesses.
Digital Craftsmen provide flexible and secure VDI as a service for businesses and organisations giving them the security and support to thrive and operate efficiently in a virtual desktop environment.
Persistent vs Non-Persistent VDI
Persistent VDI refers to each user having their own virtual desktop, whereas non persistent VDI is shared among end users. There are both advantages and disadvantages associated with each option. As certified experts, we are ready to advise on the best virtual desktop environments which will best fit your requirements.
Business requirements and integration
We provide Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) services on both Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud platforms.
Each Cloud Platform has distinct advantages and unique ways to integrate services within your organisation. Knowing how to fine-tune them requires extra skill but allows them to be tailored to meet your exact requirements.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all desktop virtualisation solution; it depends on your current operating system, future business requirements or existing roadmaps for cloud adoption.

VDI & DaaS BenefitsFor clients with restrictive data sovereignty or compliance requirements, we offer VDI and enhanced networking solutions, such as our London-based Multi-Site VMWare Cloud.
Secure remote access
The VDI environment allows users to work from any location, securely. Users have access to remote desktops from most devices anywhere in the world; this service enables users to access all their files and applications remotely. Access is centrally controlled and secured with multi-factor authentication.
Working from home or working remotely is now a standard working practice for many businesses. Initially driven by the pandemic, the flexible approach to working is an important benefit companies are able to offer their employees and in turn, many businesses are benefiting from saving money on expensive office rents.
Integration into existing IAM systems
If you are already using a directory service which supports SAML 2.0 or SSO (e.g., Active Directory), VDI and DaaS services are easily be integrated directly into your existing IT systems and infrastructure, making for a seamless transition with minimum disruption.
Compliance and security
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) has become a security issue for many workplaces that have a policy of employees and remote workers using personal devices for work-related activities.
A simple way to manage this is to set up VDI and DaaS which easily allows for central management and enforcement of organisation and regulatory policies.
Backups, OS updates, security software, applications and new configurations are orchestrated across the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and the desktop computing takes place on the host server which greatly reduces administrative overheads. Centralised management allows administrators to manage and update all virtualised desktops at the same time.
