RDS FOR POD

WHY USE POD FOR RDS?

Remote Desktop Services (RDS) from Microsoft is their in-house virtualisation solution, designed to offer cost-effective, yet flexible app and desktop hosting to businesses. By hosting apps away from users devices, you can provide secure access to sensitive information and data, without the burden of securing every end-user device or micro-managing which devices can access specific apps and data. RDS can either be deployed on-premise or for greater performance and cost-savings, it can be deployed in the cloud, on a platform such as POD. POD gives you guaranteed performance, expert security and total control over your cloud deployments. Empowering you to roll out a more seamless RDS deployment, that doesn’t compromise on security or on your budgets.

RDS-BASED SOLUTIONS

By rolling out an RDS deployment in your business, your team now have the ability to remotely launch applications or fully-fledged desktops from a vast majority of devices. This keeps the operating system and core files located within secure data centres, vastly reducing the potential for data theft or loss. There are pros and cons for each method of delivery outlined below:

REMOTE DESKTOPS

RDS can deliver a desktop-like experience when deployed as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) where each user has their own virtual machine. Users can customise their desktops with VDI, allowing for more flexibility. However, when deploying a full desktop experience, higher bandwidth is required to sustain the connection between back-end servers and the endpoint devices.

REMOTE APPS

If users only need remote access to specialist applications, remote app virtualisation is a more reliable option due to the lower bandwidth needed. If users are working with sensitive information, VDI silos users to individual virtual machines (VMs.) However, session-based virtualisation (where apps and VMs are shared across users) offers a more cost-effective option.
