With Unidesk, IT administrators can quickly create and configure custom virtual desktops using reusable operating system and application “layers.” One operating system layer can be used for all desktops, while application layers can be assigned to different desktops as needed to meet individual or departmental requirements, without ever having to reinstall the application. Unidesk's ability to share common OS and application layers across many desktops reduces VDI storage capacity requirements as much as 70%. Each desktop can also have a personalization layer that sustains all end user customizations, including user-installed applications, helping extend VDI implementations to knowledge workers. These combined capabilities are quickly establishing Unidesk as the leading desktop management platform for VDI.
Unidesk and KIS are driving VDI projects at the City of Foster City, the City of Pleasanton, Tulare County, Hartnell College and more.
