Supporting the journey of local organisations.
Nutanix has come out with a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) service to help promote telework adoption in ASEAN organisations.
The Cloud computing company’s ‘FastTrack for VDI’ brings together Nutanix HCI and software with selected partners to accelerate and optimise a VDI service.
Nutanix’s product release comes as countries across ASEAN extend social distancing measures, increasing the pressure for businesses to enforce effective remote working quickly.
Neville Vincent vice president South Asia Pacific at Nutanix said as the region’s businesses continue to battle the impact of COVID-19.
Vincent believes many organisations still struggle to enable their workforces to operate and function remotely, while maintaining access to the same tools and applications they require to be productive and efficient. Hence, there has been increased interest in the importance of VDI.
“‘FastTrack for VDI’ enables local businesses to continue their digital transformation journey in these times of uncertainty,” he said. “It allows remote access to critical business applications, even via personal devices, on which strict security policies can be implemented and managed through its simple management console.
“As the work from anywhere model becomes the central pillar of the region’s continuity strategy, Nutanix will be there to help accelerate and smoothen their way to the cloud.”
Nutanix’s ‘FastTrack for VDI’ is designed to help organisations:
- Reduce the time required to onboard thousands of remote employees.
- The offer includes the set up and provision of desktops in under five business days for predefined Nutanix configurations. It allows businesses to provide employees with secure access to apps and tools, with minimal interruptions, while maintaining the required control and security.
- Customers will be able to leverage existing hardware, select predefined Nutanix hardware or leverage managed cloud infrastructure from managed service provider (MSP) partners, including Cyxtera.
- The simplicity and flexibility of the Nutanix infrastructure makes deployment easier, enabling an expedited delivery service.
