COVID-19 stay-at-home orders have challenged the very fabric of the U.S. education system, particularly when it comes to providing underserved students with equal access to remote learning capability. Commonly referred to as the “Homework Gap,” a lack of equality in the distribution of internet connectivity, computers, tablets, and other IT services outside of schools – and in student homes –...

Virtualized Desktop Solutions from Quarterhorse Technology Inc.
A cloud-based computing platform designed specifically for your business.
Today’s workers need more from their computing platforms. They need them to be consistent and redundant and, most importantly, available from wherever they are. At Quarterhorse Technology Inc., we offer a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) platform that can transform your business by providing the custom computing interface, application deployment, and cost reduction that is attractive to both the modern company, and the modern worker.
The resources your company needs, available from anywhere.
Today’s workforce depends on the flexibility to work from different locations, on different devices, at different times. With Quarterhorse Technology Inc.'s VDI, the hardware and applications your staff depends on is virtualized and hosted in the cloud to give them the access to all the computing resources, applications, and databases they need to be productive, on the devices they prefer 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
VDI offers substantial cost savings over traditional computing constructs.
Businesses spend a lot of money on hardware. With our VDI platform, organizations can reduce that money spent on hardware, as the interface is hosted through the cloud and can be delivered through thin clients and mobile browsers. Beyond that, since the hardware is virtualized it is managed and maintained by the cloud provider, support costs are cut while providing a customizable, reliable computing platform for each member of your staff.
Complete data sovereignty allows for enhanced security.
You can set up your VDI to allow your employees access to data without the access to change or copy it. This provides the kind of data security you need when your staff depends on the data, but doesn’t need the ability to manipulate it. Our VDI deployment allows companies that have recognized that they have problems keeping their data secure to take full control over it, while still maintaining a comprehensive computing construct their staff needs to complete their jobs efficiently.
How Our VDI Works
Our hosted desktop solution is cloud computing at its best.
Quarterhorse Technology Inc. technicians will perform a full assessment of your organization’s computing infrastructure, noting what applications you use, how you store your data, and other factors that will go into designing a reliable VDI solution. Using today’s most dynamic virtualization tools, we will then work to digitize your applications and data onto partitioned infrastructure that is hosted in our datacenter. Through the use of virtual machines, we are then able to provide access through a web browser to a platform (typically Windows OS-based) where each user will have access to the applications and databases they need to perform their duties. Since the VDI interface is accessible from anywhere, you free every user in your organization from the confines of the traditional workstation, providing them a custom interface in which to be productive.
The IT professionals at Quarterhorse Technology Inc. are here to help your organization build efficiency and be more productive, boosting the overall profitability of your business and promoting organizational growth.
