During the initial COVID-19 lockdown, organizations were in a rush to enable remote work. Often, this led to implementing "Plan B" options, like VPN. A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) on the other hand, is a more long-term, sustainable "Plan A" option for large corporations, especially those that need to meet various regulatory requirements (like financial institutions, insurance companies, healthcare institutions, and legal firms).
Price: $15,000+ (various ECIF funding buckets available)
Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is much more cost-efficient and scalable than other traditional VDI options that typically require large, upfront CapEx. This modern, Cloud-based VDI uses existing Microsoft 365 licenses and a pay-per-use model - especially useful for organizations who'd like to have VDI available as an option at all times at a lower cost.
Test out the benefits of Azure Virtual Desktop in your organization with a AVD Proof of Concept (POC) for up to 25 of your users. A POC is a smart way to verify whether AVD is the best option for your organization, whether it is for a specific use case (i.e. to enable remote workers to access QuickBooks) or for a full-scale implementation. This POC also includes a 90-day trial to Nerdio's Manager for AVD to simplify ongoing management of AVD.
Validate the end-user experience with 25 users to see if you’d like to deploy it organization-wide.

No need to manage the Remote Desktop roles like you do with Remote Desktop Services, just the virtual machines in your Azure subscription.
There is a major shift taking place in infrastructure these days. Organizations are looking for the ability to be more agile and increase and decrease capacity at will. Compared to traditional on-premise infrastructure, Azure, the next generation Cloud-based option, provides organizations with flexibility to increase and decrease capacity as employee head counts fluctuate, and provides organizations with cost-saving opportunities (as you only pay for what you consume).
(based on the number of servers being assessed)
If your organization is evaluating Cloud-based infrastructure, start with an Azure Assessment to uncover all dependencies within your current network, understand the cost of running Azure, and discover any potential security risks in your environment (like Shadow IT).
Visually map all your dependencies that exist between nodes and applications within your infrastructure.
Learn how your network communicates with itself and whether outside connections might pose a security threat.
Servers, workstations, networks, laptops, mobile devices - maintaining infrastructure lifecycles for these vital products can be time consuming. Instead of burning in-house IT resources on these, outsourcing that responsibility to a Managed Services (MS) provider increases the value per dollar spent.
MS allows the freedom and flexibility to choose what kind of IT support works for your budget. A Service Level Agreement (SLA) allows you to handle your hardware and software effectively, while reducing the total cost of device ownership, and creating and deploying IT strategies that enable your organization to grow and succeed in a safe and secure manner.

Your infrastructure, a big part of your business strategy, needs to be considered from a holistic view for it to be a true business enabler. Thinking of your infrastructure investment on an "as needed" basis leads to redundancy and over-spend. An IT Roadmap provides your organization with that overview you need when making decisions on your infrastructure.
Understand the most efficient ways to leverage IT as a critical business advantage.
This advisory engagement helps your management team by reviewing and measuring two aspects of your business (your business needs and your IT capabilities), performing a gap analysis, and providing recommendations to close the gap between the two. You will receive an IT Roadmap; a detailed report (typically 40-70 pages) that not only shows you the gaps and how to fix them, but also addresses any current IT issues, inefficient technology, and how these changes can increase productivity in your organization.
Increase productivity by implementing the right technology.
Save costs by removing inefficient technology.
Address current IT issues & avoid significant system failures.
Improve IT security to proactively protect your business-critical data.
