Workspot delivers on the promise of VDI 

For years organizations have struggled to realize the promised benefits of VDI. Unbearably high CapEx and OpEx plus mind-boggling complexity has seriously limited the value of first generation solutions. Workspot has a completely different approach.  A single, unified solution enables IT to deliver apps and desktops that run on either Microsoft Azure or on-premises infrastructure (or both). End users get a single workspace client to securely access any app or desktop from any device. The business gets a scalable, simplified, future-proof solution that reduces IT cost and complexity. It may feel like you've heard this story before, but there are huge differences between the old way and the modern architecture that allows Workspot to deliver on the promise of VDI.

VDI 2.0 is the next generation VDI architecture, where the control/management plane runs in the cloud and the desktops/apps run on-premises. DaaS 2.0 is an all-cloud solution where in addition to the control plane, the apps & desktops also run in the cloud.

Top 3 differences between VDI 2.0/DaaS 2.0 and other solutions

1. Time to value - deploy enterprise class VDI in a day

Our customers deploy their desktops and apps either in the cloud or on-premises in 1 day! Compare that to legacy solutions which can take months to deploy.

2. Built-in high availability, scalability, updates and support

IT no longer has to worry about high availability, scalability and updates. Workspot takes care of it automatically. Every component of the solution is always up-to-date. The cloud is designed to be highly reliable and scalable. And just-in-case you ever need help, we include level 2 support in our subscription pricing.

3. Single unified workspace for any app on any device

Workspot's platform enables IT to deliver a workspace to their end users. A workspace is a client that is available on any end point - Windows PC, Macs, iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets.

From their workspace client, end users get an elegant, simple way to access a virtual desktop or any application, including on-premises web apps like SharePoint, SaaS apps like Office 365, Windows client-server applications, and network shares.compare VDI and Daas workspace 4.47.26 PM.png
