A virtual desktop is similar to a normal computer desktop, but everything is on a software package and runs on a cloud server. Multiple virtual desktops can be run on a single server, which eases the collaboration between users and reduces costs. A virtual desktop solution is a way of deploying multiple virtual desktops similar to a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Creating a virtual desktop can be difficult and depending on the provider you’re with, it can require IT skills and certifications. That’s different with V2 Cloud’s virtual desktop services—you can create a virtual desktop in 20 minutes. Simply create an account, build your virtual desktop in the cloud, and after 20 minutes you can start using it.

The cost of virtual desktops varies depending on user licenses and resource consumption such as CPU and RAM. Prices start at approximately $35 USD per user, which includes a bundle of computing resources, like 2 CPUs and 8 GB of RAM. These resources are pooled in the cloud desktop with a per-user licensing fee. For geographically dispersed users, dedicated virtual desktops may be necessary, precluding resource sharing.

Virtual machines or VM, are virtualized computing environments similar to physical computers. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI is a system that is using VMs to provision virtual desktops and applications. You can keep in mind that VDI > VM > Virtual Desktops. VDI is the infrastructure where your virtual machines are hosted and those virtual machines have virtual desktops.

Virtual desktops are notoriously safe because your data never leaves the cloud. Virtual desktop solutions are usually safer than physical desktops. Since no business data is stored on the physical machine, multiple layers of security and encryptions are built-in with cloud desktops. Multifactor authentication(MFA) and single sign-on(SSO) on a cloud PC are protecting end-users way more than mixing personal data with business data on a physical desktop.

There are many advantages to using virtual desktop software. The key aim of virtual desktops is to better manage workloads by transforming traditional computing to be more scalable, efficient, and economical. Virtual desktop software is quickly being adopted by organizations and the academic community due to its ability to offer a reduction of investment outlays and operating costs. Some benefits of virtual desktop software are:

– Simplified management
– Increase productivity
– Flexible and cost-effective
– Environmentally friendly
