Ramp up remote working with Cisco Datacenter and Comstor


Cisco’s collaboration, security and data centre solutions are helping business to ramp up remote working and support home workers.

Once connected and secure, workers need a seamless user experience and virtual desktop infrastructure to keep the apps running.

Customers can manage and expand their virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) quickly and easily with a new pre-configured HyperFlex bundle.

Cisco is augmenting its VDI bundle with a free 180-day trial of Intersight Essentials edition so customers can monitor and manage their infrastructure anywhere, anytime.

Advantages of VDI

With VDI, data and application processes take place centrally - within the Multi-cloud Data Center. This presents advantages over other remote access solutions:


Data Security

Even when the user’s machine is compromised

Less Bandwidth

Very important when sharing larger files or performing updates

Operational Efficiency

Less troubleshooting of individual desktops

Better Performance

Particularly for graphics-intensive applications

Cost savings

On user devices and thin clients



Organisations will benefit from deploying VDI as part of an end-to-end cloud, web, and mobile application strategy that is optimised for digital workflows.
