TD Synnex has announced a new managed virtual desktop offering for businesses looking to offer remote desktop capabilities. The solution deploys an Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) environment hosted in Microsoft Azure that allows users to access their desktops and applications from anywhere, on any kind of device.
“Many organizations don’t have the time or resources to commit to building or deploying full-scale IT infrastructure for new or remote employees, and a virtual desktop solution can help to deliver the flexibility, scalability and cost efficiency businesses need,” said Peter Zonneveld, vice president of Global Solutions Aggregation at TD Synnex. “The addition of new managed features to Azure’s Virtual Desktop reduces set-up time and allows for easy-to-use services that help customers access their work applications and infrastructure from anywhere in the world.”
The new offering has two options for deployment:
A standalone feature which provides a quick deployment for partners that already offer managed services and need a quick AVD environment setup. Partners are expected to easily customize the size and scope of the desired AVD environment and deploy this offering in less than 30 minutes.
The other option is a managed feature which provides the quick AVD environment setup listed above plus 24×7 support and management provided via email, phone and chat; performance monitoring and backup; and white-labeled service options including implementation, onboarding, resource monitoring, remediation and patch management services.
“TD Synnex recognizes delivering secure cloud-based virtual desktop solutions is essential to ensuring customer productivity while mitigating risks. By adding a services component to these solutions, we are helping partners go to market more effectively, faster, and even more profitably,” said Stephen Ennis, vice president of Services and Advanced Solutions for Europe. “The Azure Virtual Desktop Click-to-Run™ offering provides a fully managed solution which teams can quickly set up and scale to virtualized infrastructures, while providing a new revenue stream and portfolio enhancer.”
The Azure Virtual Desktop Click-to-Run solution is designed to bring remote end-users a secure, simplified and productive personal computing experience. The offering provides a managed solution to set up and scale to virtualized infrastructures, while providing a new revenue stream and portfolio enhancer.
