The end of Windows 7 support is here. Learn what’s next. Hint: it’s Linux-based.
We told you about the inevitable Windows 7 end of support all the way back in September 2019. Today, it finally happened. So what can you do about it? The first thing you might want to consider before purchasing those pricey Windows 10 licenses is this – is there another option that can help you save not only countless redundant IT man hours but boost security as well?
Fortunately, there is an answer for the end of Windows 7 support. And that answer is Linux-based.
The End of Windows 7
Right now, all around you, IT leaders and major enterprises and organizations are choosing Linux over Windows endpoints. Windows endpoints have, over all, created too much hassle and expense. When deployed on endpoints, Windows inevitably drive up costs and expenditures. Countless IT resources are redirected daily to updating and maintaining individual endpoints within the organizations digital perimeter AROUND THE WORLD.
This needs to stop.
A New Way to Provision Virtual Desktops
In response to the end of Windows 7, one route major VDI providers are taking is to dive into delivering cloud hosted desktops. Cloud desktops are a very competitive and alluring option for many enterprises that may not benefit from the robust benefits a full VDI deployment has to offer.
Stratodesk is the ideal complement to DaaS/cloud desktop deployments. Our management solution is available in the Cloud (NoTouch Cloud) and our NoTouch OS allows you to forgo the Windows problem. That’s right. With Stratodesk NoTouch OS, you don’t need Windows on any of your devices.
Modern Workforce, Modern Needs
If these reasons weren’t enough, relying on Windows 7 also creates another problem – how do modern workers get their best work done?
Today, workers are not only fleeing the city and opting to work more flexibly in remote locations, even employees in your local network will switch between working remotely, in the office, at home, or on the go. Managing all of this, including using personal devices alongside dedicated work ones, creates an insurmountable management complexity for Windows endpoints.
With Stratodesk software, however, powering the future of work is seamless.
Stratodesk is fully capable of deploying across multiple worksites anywhere around the world, and can run on even the most cutting edge computers (think gaming PCs) to enable flexible remote work.
