New workplace realities are challenging legacy assumptions about where, when, and how work gets done. Location and access-device flexibility are more important than ever, while the ability to deliver productivity and security are no less essential. The public cloud is one option—but not when data sovereignty, privacy, performance, or security considerations require apps and data to remain on premises.

Take a proven approach to enabling remote work with VDI

When conducting business away from the office, workers may be using any type of tablet, smartphone, or PC—trusted or not—as is typical in today’s bring-your-own-device, work-from-home environment. With virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), employees have no need to store confidential company data on a personal device that could easily be lost, stolen, or tampered with. HPE GreenLake for VDI offers inherently secure on-premises virtual desktop infrastructures, tailored to users’ needs, that let you avoid high up-front costs, speed time to value, and scale seamlessly to align resources with demand.
