For IT administrators with a lot to deal with in today’s corporate infrastructure, here are some of the benefits of ThinDesk:

  • Management: In a typical corporate infrastructure, you manage desktops using remote software technology such as Altiris or some other push technology. It is really hard to manage hundreds of desktops as you are well aware if you administer desktops in your corporate infrastructure.
    Using technology such as ThinDesk allows you to have central management of all your desktops and really control what is being installed and used on the desktops. Deployment of virtual desktops is lightning fast as opposed to using imaging technology such as Norton or other antiquated technologies. Would you like to manage 500 desktops all over the Canada, the United States or Europe or manage them from one data center?
  • Security: Security is a key factor in rolling out ThinDesk. With ThinDesk, you have greater control of how you secure your desktop. You can lock down the image from external devices or prevent copying data from the image to your local machine; we are big fans of this feature of ThinDesk. Remote users or road warriors also benefit as sensitive data is stored on the server in the data center and not the device. If the device is stolen, the information is protected.
  • OS migrations: Let’s say you want to roll out Windows Vista to a select few managers. Prior to ThinDesk, you would have to look at their equipment and most likely upgrade hardware, memory, disk space, etc. With ThinDesk, you can just push out a Windows Vista image from a central location to the group of managers.
  • ThinDesk image: You can create a library of ThinDesk images to meet all of your company needs. If your company is seasonal, you can have extra images to handle the increased employee traffic. If you use third-party vendors/contractors/consultants, you can use secure/encrypted locked down images to allow them to work in your environment.
  • Snapshot technology: With ThinDesk, you have the ability to roll back desktops to different states. This is a great feature, and it allows you to give a lot of flexibility to your end users.
  • Go green: A thin client ThinDesk session will use less electricity than a desktop computer. Using ThinDesk is a way to reduce your carbon footprint on our planet and save your company money in power costs.
  • Independence: With ThinDesk, who cares what device you use? A thin client, a PC, Apple, Linux, etc. As long as you can connect to the internet you are golden.
