USER WORKSPACE DEPLOYMENT BASED ON VDI TECHNOLOGY
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
To reduce the load on administrators and increase the level of protection against unauthorized access to personal data.
To build a VDI IT Infrastructure with the installation of zero clients.
- A Virtual Cluster Computing Platform
- Data storage with multi-channel access to disk arrays
- Request dispatch (connection broker) and load balancing systems
In addition to the standard set of software, employee profiles contain other applications and data, all of which was necessary to fully migrate to the new infrastructure. For this reason, data was migrated from user PCs to central storage.
Jet Infosystems specialists built a virtual fault-tolerant IT infrastructure at the customer's data center, and installed zero clients for connecting to VDI workstations. Unlike standard stations (thin clients), zero clients have processors installed for hardware encoding and decoding of PCoIP traffic, thus enabling remote access to the workplace. In addition to resulting in lower overall costs, they result in increased performance and lifecycle and consume less electricity.
The new VDI environment is integrated with M.Video's IT landscape, including anti-virus protection, backup and monitoring systems. New software installation, application updates and other changes are now centralized. If one of the servers fails, the user is automatically redirected to a backup node without any affect on his/her work or the work of other employees.
Transfer to the new infrastructure was done on a tight schedule, without affecting the operation of company divisions.
