Attorneys at the firms are now using Citrix XenDesktop or VMware Horizon View to access their Microsoft Windows desktops and applications from virtually any location and any device to offer enhanced service to clients. IT managers at all three firms are using Unidesk to create the virtual desktops, deliver applications, apply Windows updates, and perform desktop break/fix with unprecedented simplicity and speed.
'Our workforce is pushing outside the four walls of our offices, so being able to provide a consistent experience while they're on the move is a big benefit,' said
Solving the VDI Application Delivery Challenge for Law Firms
Law firms implementing VDI often find that the many different applications and plug-ins required for document review, document preparation, e-discovery, property research, and other legal work cannot be delivered with traditional application virtualization technology, which isolates applications to prevent conflict. Because isolated applications run inside their own protective 'bubbles,' they cannot work with each other unless they are packaged together.
Commented Kramer, 'We initially looked at implementing non-persistent desktops and virtualizing our applications, but it just wasn't feasible. We have 10-15 different plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook alone, and each one has different release cycles. It would have been far too complicated getting them to interoperate, and to juggle the different versions and one-offs that are needed by different groups. With Unidesk, we can give everyone persistent desktops, and layer in any application or plug-in that is needed.'
Unidesk desktop layering technology provides the same modular application packaging and delivery benefits as application virtualization, but without the isolation side effects. Unidesk layered applications look to each other, and to Windows, as if they are natively installed.
'We have 53 application layers in use across our 225 Unidesk desktops,' said
