Simply IT delivers powerful virtual desktops that provide every teacher and administrator with the ability to log in and work wherever they are, and on any laptop or desktop.
Virtual Desktops have traditionally been too expensive for schools – and tough for on site technicians to maintain. But not any more.
Simply IT has developed a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure solution optimised for schools and the needs of teachers which is based on the industry leading VMware Horizon platform.
Scalable to any size of school’s environment, it is part of our Simply 360 suite of SaaS services designed to complement current networks but make them more economical, efficient, and easy to maintain.
Teachers have enough to do, without having to lug their tablet or laptop around the school so they can access their applications or files when they need them. When they do log on, it needs to be extremely secure to protect student information – especially if they are working from home.
Remote access isn’t new – but many remote solutions aren’t right for schools. It can be clunky for users. Dialling in through VPNs isn’t totally secure. 2-factor authentication is an irritant. Each time a user logs in, the system can look a bit different, depending on the device they happen to be using.
Virtual desktops use virtual machines to deliver and manage virtual desktops for all the users of a school IT network. They can then access these from anywhere they have an internet connection.
All school data and student information lives securely on the school host server, and is never transferred to the end device – so nothing is compromised if a school device goes missing, or someone misplaces a personal laptop.
