Nutanix Steps up Support for ‘Work From Anywhere’

FastTrack for VDI’ Service to Help Organizations Onboard Thousands of Remote Employees. Secure and user-friendly VDI environment available in just few weeks Supporting the continuous DX journey of local organizations in times of uncertainty.

Nutanix, a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced a new VDI service to help promote telework adoption among Thai organizations. Nutanix ‘FastTrack for VDI’ brings together Nutanix HCI and software with selected partners to accelerate and optimise a VDI service in just a few weeks.

As the nation’s businesses continue to battle the impact of COVID-19, many still struggle to enable their workforces to operate and function remotely while still maintaining access to the same tools and applications they require to be productive? and efficient.  Hence, the increasing interest and importance of VDI.

Building VDI environments to effectively maintain core business and technical operations frequently takes up to a few months. But, Nutanix ‘FastTrack for VDI’ can reduce that to a matter of weeks.

The announcement comes as the majority of Thailand’s enterprises have yet to adopt remote working, with security concerns and lack of IT skills required to meet business demand, the most common reasons for lack of adoption.

For those companies that have adopted teleworking, the biggest challenge stems from their existing IT infrastructure: which repeatedly showed itself unable to maintain operations during the recent sudden demand surges.

Nutanix FastTrack for VDI helps to address these challenges while supporting local businesses to continue their DX journey in these times of uncertainty. It allows remote access to critical business applications, even via BYOD devices and strict security policies can be implemented and managed through its simple management console.
