How to Easily Compare Hosted Versus Premise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) from Evolve IP, Microsoft, Citrix, and Others

February 24, 2013 / Evolve IP
New VDI decision tool helps IT leaders determine which solution—Evolved Desktop, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS/RemoteFX, or generic desktop-as-a-service—is right for their organization

WAYNE, Pa.–()–Today Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, introduced a VDI Decision Guide, an easy-to-use tool that walks decision-makers through the pros and cons of selecting a hosted virtual desktop infrastructure solution versus do-it-yourself premise solutions. By focusing on just the facts, Evolve IP’s VDI Decision Guide quickly shows IT leaders how these technologies stack up against each other and whether they have the features and capabilities that are right for their organization. Evolve IP’s VDI Decision Guide provides comprehensive comparative coverage of the Evolved Desktop, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft RDS/RemoteFX, as well as a generic desktop-as-a-service.

“With cost savings, mobility, and performance improvements, it’s not a matter of whether you should take your desktop infrastructure to the cloud, but rather how you do it and which solution you select,” said Scott Kinka, Chief Technology Officer at Evolve IP. “No single provider’s technology works for every company, and each solution needs to be evaluated on its own merits. Our VDI Decision Guide helps IT leaders clearly see the differences so they can understand how each platform aligns with their business needs.”

The VDI Decision Guide covers 12 dimensions of virtual desktop infrastructure decision-making. Within minutes, business leaders can run their thumb down the grid to figure out which solution is best for them. The grid is available for download for free online.

Those IT leaders that review the Decision Grid and select the Evolved Desktop solution for their organization can also take advantage of a limited time offer and receive three free months of VDI. For details about this offer, please call Evolve IP toll free at 855-699-6919.
