VDI Ease and Affordability for Small Businesses

Kaviza VDI-in-a-Box is a plug-and-play virtual desktop system that basically anyone can get up and running for a small-to-medium-size business. It truly is an automated turnkey way to do it; you install the software on a commodity server, and it just finds all the nodes automatically. When Kaviza is running, the virtual desktop runs in its own browser-type window with all the application functionality needed. Little or no latency is apparent. User can continue to use their local applications as normal. Talk about best of both worlds! This is an alternative for companies that are reluctant to have to upgrade to new Windows operating systems every few years. With VDI, only one update is ever needed.
