In case you didn’t have time to keep up with this week’s virtual desktop headlines, here are a few of our favorites for the week of August 14, 2017 – including some big news from Dizzion!
We’re very excited to announce that we made our Inc. 5000 debut this year, ranking at No. 556 after recording more than 800% growth. While many people know the big name players in the VDI and DaaS industry, Dizzion’s impressive growth is testament to the fact that more organizations are looking for fully managed desktop as a service solutions that allows them to outsource more of their virtual desktop environment, including post-implementation support and PCI or HIPAA compliance.
The Inc. 5000 list has been running for 36 years and ranks the fastest growing privately held companies throughout the United States. Inc. noted the particularly impressive growth displayed by this year’s honorees.
“Companies that made the list, on average, have grown six fold since 2013. During a stretch when the economy grew just 6.7 percent, that’s a result most businesses could only dream of,” a congratulatory letter sent to honorees and signed by Eric Schurenberg, President and Editor in Chief of Inc. Media, said.
While not strictly about VDI, virtual desktops are a solution to the “changing challenges of end user computing” explored in this article on Virtualization Review.

Over time, as PCs became more powerful, smaller, and less costly, enterprise applications were increasingly accessed using PCs and more and more enterprise data was hosted on remote PCs. Many of these PCs had become “luggable,” and thus could be used in places other than enterprise offices. This meant that enterprise applications were being accessed from enterprise offices as before, but something new data was added. End users were accessing enterprise applications and data from hotels, airports and customers’ offices.
Enterprise IT found it increasingly difficult to monitor where and how critical applications and data were being used, and who was using them; enterprise security became a greater concern as a result.

Knowing how your virtual desktop environment is running is critical to trouble shooting and delivering a good end user experience. This Tech Target article explains what exactly VDI monitoring should be monitoring and what types of deployments it can be helpful to.
A negative user experience is often the result of a single resource malfunction, which is why VDI monitoring tools give IT admins strength. The tools cut down the time IT must spend trying to find the problem and instead give that time back to fix it.
