Virtualization and Data Management Services

Desktop Virtualization (DaaS)

Employee needs are evolving in today’s rapidly changing environment. Whether you support a team of 25 or 700, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (DaaS) gives users a better way to work from anywhere. Power productivity with desktops that are always on and always secure, no matter where your employees work or which devices they use.

Desktop as a Service (DaaS):  DaaS, securely delivers virtual applications and desktops from the cloud to any device or location. This desktop virtualization solution provisions secure saas and legacy applications as well as full Windows-based virtual desktops and delivers them to your workforce. DaaS offers a simple and predictable pay-as-a-go subscription model, making it easy to scale up or down on-demand. This turnkey service is easy to manage, simplifying many of the IT admin tasks of desktop solutions.

 Versiant’s Desktops as a Service (DaaS) deliver your virtual applications and desktop services by way of a public or private cloud service. Your workforce can access this service through their existing network connection via a web browser or a secure application downloaded to a device such as a laptop, desktop, thin client or tablet.

Versiant’s DaaS is offered as a subscription service and is delivered via a cloud environment such as Azure allowing the added benefit of being supported in a Infrastructure as a Service model. Versiant provides the management of the VDI deployment, as well as the maintenance, security, upgrades, data backup, and storage. And the customer manages the applications

DaaS is a good choice for organizations that do not want to invest in and manage their own on-premises VDI solution.

Server Virtualization

Versiant’s Infrastructure Virtualization transforms traditional IT infrastructure of one to one physical servers to capitalize on the flexibility, scalability, and performance of virtual systems.

Versiant sees a growing number of businesses now see virtualization as key to successful infrastructure initiatives. Making the transition from a traditional infrastructure can create almost as many challenges as it solves. Companies typically have a complex mix of compute, storage, and network resources that have evolved over time and not necessarily in a mature way. Versiant brings virtualization subject matter expertise to build a workable path toward for virtualized and software-defined infrastructure. Versiant can help you modernize your infrastructure by bringing together previously isolated infrastructure silos and deliver the benefits of virtualization and cloud-like capabilities for your datacenter or on-premises environment. By combining these once disparate elements into a holistic, software-defined, and integrated platform, you realize a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Reducing complexity: Versiant can build a hyperconverged and virtualized infrastructure where compute, storage, and network components work seamlessly together within the core data center as well as in the public cloud and at the edge.
  • Controlling costs: Virtualization can reduce hardware costs and management costs by consolidating hardware.
  • Increasing agility: Meet the accelerating demand for deploying new applications and cloud capabilities for faster business service delivery.
  • Being cloud-ready: Gain the flexibility to match cloud service delivery and consumption demands as business needs change, new innovations emerge, and your organization considers adopting public cloud and edge environments in the future.
Network Virtualization

Network virtualization is the management and monitoring of an entire computer network as a single administrative entity from a single software-based administrator’s console. It automates many network administrative tasks, which disguise a network’s true complexity. All network servers and services are considered one pool of resources, which may be used without regard to the physical components.

Network virtualization combines hardware and software network resources and network functionality into a single, software based administrative entity. Virtual networks are no longer something to consider in the future.

 Versiant’s network virtualization deployment and management deliver the following benefits

  •   Reduces the number of physical devices needed
  • Easily segment networks
  • Permits rapid change / scalability and agile deployment
  • Security from destruction of physical devices
  • Failover mode – defective disk simply switches to a backup on the fly, and the failed component can be repaired, while the system continues to run

 Versiant designs Local Area Networks (LANs) are subdivided into virtual networks and VLANs. Doing do will dramatically improve load balancing. You can also improve security by segmenting your network and establishing role and location-based permissions and procedures. Doing this in a virtual environment enables you to be agile and adapt your network architecture as needed to manage changing and increasing network loading and demand.

SD-WAN

As businesses adopt the use of SaaS and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) applications in multiple clouds, IT is realizing that the user application experience is poor. That is because WANs designed for a different era are not ready for the unprecedented explosion of WAN traffic that cloud adoption brings. That traffic causes management complexity, application-performance unpredictability, and data vulnerability.

Enabling broadband on the WAN makes the security requirements more acute, creating challenges for IT in balancing user experience, security, and complexity. The traditional WAN architecture was limited to enterprise, branch, and data center. Once an organization adopts cloud-based applications in the form of SaaS and IaaS, its WAN architecture experiences an explosion of traffic accessing applications distributed across the globe.

These changes have multiple implications for IT. Employee productivity may be compromised by SaaS-application performance problems. WAN expenses can rise with inefficient use of dedicated and backup circuits. IT fights a daily, complex battle of connecting multiple types of users with multiple types of devices to multiple cloud environments.

With SD-WAN, Versiant can deliver routing, threat protection, efficient offloading of expensive circuits, and simplification of WAN network management. Business benefits can include the following:

 Better application experience

  • High availability, with predictable service, for all critical enterprise applications
  • Multiple hybrid active-active links for all network scenarios
  • Dynamically routed application traffic with application-aware routing, for efficient delivery and improved user experience
  • Improved OpEx, replacing expensive Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) services with more economical and flexible broadband (including secure VPN connections)

 More security

  • Application-aware policies with end-to-end segmentation and real-time access control
  • Integrated threat protection enforced at the right place
  • Secure traffic across broadband Internet and into the cloud
  • Distribute security to the branch and remote endpoints with NGFW, DNS security, and NGAV

 Optimized cloud connectivity

  • Seamless extension of the WAN to multiple public clouds
  • Real-time optimized performance for Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, and other major SaaS applications
  • Optimized workflows for cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure

 Simplified management

  • A single, centralized, cloud-delivered management dashboard for configuration and management of WAN, cloud, and security
  • Template-based, zero-touch provisioning for all locations: branch, campus, and cloud
  • Detailed reporting of application and WAN performance for business analytics and bandwidth forcasting
