Educational institutions face unique challenges when it comes to implementing VDI. Typically, student networks are separated from faculty and staff networks –something which requires an advanced management software to handle.
Common problems facing educational institutions keeping them from implementing VDI include:
Not enough time, budget or man hours to implement a VDI and manage endpoints
Managing a complex environment and separating student devices from faculty/staff
Managing a mixed environment of PCs, Laptops and Thin Clients
Managing many school sites across a district without needing an on premise server at each site.
Stratodesk NoTouch Desktop solves theses issues by providing secure endpoints and seamless management of your institution’s VDI, making it the number one choice for educational institutions, no matter if they are run with Citrix, VMware, or any other VDI environment
K-12 and High School
School districts can use one NoTouch Center installation for all of their sites. Different administrator roles can be assigned and the software can be hosted off-premise or on-premise. NoTouch Desktop allows for the re-use of older machines along with new PCs and/or Thin Clients. Boot from local hard drives as well as from the network (PXE). This allows you to quickly boot from PCs whether or not the original OS on the end devices should be changed or not.
Higher Education, Colleges and Universities
Running a large faculty network is very similar to running VDI in an enterprise while running a VDI in a student network poses similar challenges to a high school or any other public facility environment. You will need a an endpoint OS and management solution powerful enough to handle rollouts to thousands of machines, along with one flexible enough to handle the mixed challenges you will face in a University and/or College VDI environment.
