FASTdesk® vs. VDI

With the increasing movement towards " a Service" solutions, customers benefit from lower initial investment in IT while maintaining access to all solution features and benefits. The same applies to FASTdesk, which adopts an OpEx model on a multi-tenant platform. This model allows small teams to get fast and cost-effective access to a virtualised desktop solution.

If ultimate control over the solution setup, infrastructure and deployment is a key requirement to your IT team, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is right for you. This solution extends into, and includes, a dedicated private infrastructure for single tenancy.
