Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) provides productivity, manageability, and security benefits to large enterprises, SMBs, and other organizations across multiple industries. However, making the leap to VDI is not without its share of challenges. Businesses and organizations must make significant investments and overcome obstacles before they can get the full benefit of virtual desktops. For large enterprises in particular, overhauling an entire network of existing devices is a financial difficulty. Beyond hardware costs, there are the inevitable costs involved with Windows licensing, malware protection, IT maintenance, and more.
Stratodesk and VMware Solve Common Challenges Facing VDI Deployments
VMware Horizon is one of the top VDI vendors in the world today and is regarded as the ideal solution for helping companies make the initial jump to VDI. And Stratodesk NoTouch Desktop is its ideal complement, offering an all-in-one solution for endpoint management and computing. By centralizing IT management, reducing costs, and simplifying desktop deployment, NoTouch Desktop ensures your ability to harness the full effect of your VMware Horizon deployment.
Customers who use NoTouch Desktop can expect various benefits ranging from cost to security. For example, in higher education, Stratodesk has saved an average of $30,000 per year by repurposing hardware and cuts approximately 13 weeks of redundant IT staff hours by eliminating the need for time consuming, manual maintenance and patching of endpoints. Additionally, 1,215 hours per year have been reclaimed by organizations thanks to faster log-ins.
VMware Horizon and Stratodesk NoTouch Desktop: A Perfect Combination
Unlike similar solutions on the market, Stratodesk NoTouch Desktop already includes the latest VMware Horizon client. Thus, there is no need to deploy Horizon clients on your desktops anymore.

Whenever VMware updates its protocols, an updated NoTouch OS is made available to customers with active update subscriptions.
In addition, Stratodesk NoTouch Desktop is affordably-priced and requires little effort to set up. You will be asked to set up a connection to Horizon Connection Server when you run Stratodesk NoTouch for the first time. Just click on the shortcut to instantly connect to Horizon next time you boot up your Device.
The included NoTouch Center allows effective and automated management of all your devices – conveniently from one location. Stratodesk NoTouch Desktop includes the Stratodesk virtual appliance and PXE server for your Horizon environment.
