What do you like best?

Evolve IP Desktop Services meets our real estate needs by providing a synchronized desktop management solution for our work computers and anyone who works from home and logs in remotely. The IT department is very customer oriented and delivers amazing desktop solutions for each of our employees while being able to maintain control through the cloud based program that VDI offers. It makes things much easier for IT because it is easier to manage and more economical which enables them to focus on more strategic activities for the business.The other thing that I like about the VDI is that the security levels are way better than working on a regular pc and there is a lower risk with spam and unwanted junk mail coming in from different servers. The cost for this is also way cheaper than trying to use desktops and integrating them into your own server. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The connectivity issues that we sometimes experience can sometimes give a headache. When the VDI server is down we are unable to log into our work desktops and unfortunately we lose money when this happens. VDI would work better if they were able to manage their connectivity logs better and have a good connection all the time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The ability to enable employees to access a single desktop from many different places. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many problems that we try to come together to resolve are the connectivity issues that we sometimes experience. VDI has several benefits that companies will win from such as the combination of providing anywhere access to data and applications while securing and managing multiple devices. With VDI, the IT department has the servers in their own data centers or their own server closet, versus with DaaS where the service provider is hosting everything. Once you centralize computing, you become dependent on high-availability infrastructure, redundant equipment, network, and the staffing requirements to keep things running.

What do you like best?

The VDI environment on a college campus is super useful as you transition around different computer laps. I can stream and work on devices (virtual desktops) in remote locations. Having a cloud account also helps me be able to access my files remotely. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

You are limited on space and have to close out of existing projects prior to logging out. Once you log out of a virtual desktop nothing will remain from your session. You must rely on a cloud account to save your files. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do it! Super useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a student, having the flexibility to login anywhere on campus is a huge benefit. VDI is replacing the traditional computer environment used in many computer labs on campus. This is a cost savings to the university. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This software works with many different platforms including Windows OS and Mac OS. It's great for business of all sizes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Just like any software, it is not perfect. It can go slow sometimes or mess up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software allows for a computer to run software on another computer that is not installed on the computer. This is good if the computer doesn't have the software installed or can't run the software. It is also good for when applications have different versions of software.

What do you like best?

The thing I like the best about the Virtual Desktop is that I am able to access it from any computer. I Just need to download the app and can hop onto the virtual desktop and work. I also like that we are linked to each other and can share information within the virtual desktop. I also love how the customer service team is really easy to talk to and are very helpful. Most of my problems get resolved in the same day and usually while I'm on the phone with them! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that the virtual desktop can freeze or go slow at times. Sometimes it makes it hard for us to continue to do work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a business, we are able to share files and information in a safe place and it can be kept confidential. This is very important in our industry. We value that all the safety roles are well done and we can stop stressing about if anyone will get into information that they shouldn't. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Being able to access the business applications virtually is wonderful. Previously I could only access certain applications on a specific machine. The IT Team can administer updates to applications without causing much downtime. When I run into a technical issues the IT department can login and work on my desktop virtually. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When a temporary profile loads. Sometimes you may not realize you are using a temporary profile until after you have been working in the environment. Sometimes multiple displays cause issues on the picklist values within applications as the application may be running on one monitor but the picklist defaults to the other monitor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy user experience. Makes my job easier because I can access what I need anytime. Our students who are also using VDI can access their files from the VDI vs saving their files on a thumb drive. Since we teach online courses, the students need to have classroom resources available anytime and this VDI allows the accessibility. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability for staff to use the same application on the same version at all times. Staff may have a need to work from home due to an emergency and the VDI allows them to be productive. Being able to handle an issue after hours because I can reach the software from anywhere anytime. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The product disconnects regularly. Not sure if the platform can be stablized to support enough users and users accessing the VDI remotely. Very difficult to troubleshoot if it is a users home network or the business network causing the repeated disconnects. The user profile sometimes becomes to large and causes users issues.
