Modern businesses require a flexible IT infrastructure to boost productivity and ensure they get the most out of their employees. Desktop virtualisation helps to achieve this by creating a computing environment that allows the workforce to access desktops, business applications and files from any location without compromising security or management control.

    Desktop virtualisation is a software technology that separates the desktop environment and associated application software from the physical client device used to access it. Much like server virtualisation, multiple operating systems are concentrated on a few servers acting as virtual machines which employees then access over the network. Each virtual PC offers the same operating system and look as it would if it were running on deskbound physical hardware.

    ACR is highly experienced at implementing successful desktop virtualisation solutions which maximise the end-user experience and ensure our clients receive the full benefits of this innovative technology. Research has shown Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployments can fail if critical steps are not taken to identify the correct sizing. As one of the UK’s leading desktop virtualisation consultancies, our technical experts ensure every model we implement meets our clients' expectations.
