Virtual workstations continue to gain momentum in the industry as a way to deliver high-performance workstation class desktops in a secure and efficient way. For organizations whose employees have been tied to physical workstations or be forced to deal with frustrating file replication solutions, virtual workstations offers a breath of fresh air.
Organizations can leverage the power of virtual workstations to centralize compute, storage and networking infrastructure that houses their valuable IP whilst securely making applications and data accessible to its highly paid engineers and designers whenever and wherever they need it.
Customers in a variety of industries have embraced virtual workstations and the Dell Precision Appliance for Wyse as a way to drive enhanced mobility, security and agility.
A recent customer success story is Burns Engineering, a leading engineering and construction management firm headquartered in Philadelphia, PA. I share below some of the key aspects of the company’s implementation and its associated benefits. For additional details, please view the case study on Dell.com.
