Welcome to the VMblog 2021 Mega Series where we'll be covering a number of different and important topics throughout the coming months. In this series, you'll be hearing from the industry leaders and experts in order to help you make important decisions within your own organization. Follow along for a chance to better understand a number of topics and find out more about some of the best technologies available out there in the industry.
In today's Q&A, we're speaking with industry expert, Rich Severson, VP Global Solutions Engineering at Stratodesk, and we're diving into the topics of work from anywhere and end user computing.
Stratodesk is redefining end user computing by delivering an all-in-one solution for VDI, DaaS and IoT markets. It increases endpoint security, simplifies user experience, and allows customers to maximize the benefits of their existing desktop hardware through PC conversion.
About a third of Americans are now working from home, more ever than before. And quite simply, that's due in large part because of COVID-19 and the pandemic that was unleashed across the globe this year.
In this latest VMblog #WorkFromHome Series, we're exploring what technology means in this current paradigm shift of working remotely. And in order to do that, we're reaching out to industry experts to help shine a light on the subject. We're asking these experts to offer up their opinions and advice on what's taking place now and where things go in the future.
In this Q&A, VMblog connected with industry expert, Rich Severson, Sr. Director of Global Solutions Engineering at Stratodesk, to get his opinion on the work from home topic and at the same time, find out more about the company's EUC, VDI, and NoTouch OS solutions.
The global pandemic has made enabling work from home integral to IT everywhere. For this reason, enterprises are searching for endpoint solutions that work. In order to function at the level needed and required, however, the standard is incredibly high. It requires a perfect combination of flexibility, power and security. None of these can be left out in order to achieve perfect synergy.
To handle the complexity of remote work, IT must be able to walk the tightrope between enabling remote work while ensuring ongoing security. For many, this will mean leveraging virtual desktops - either from on-premises data centers or Cloud based virtual desktops.
Doing so offers several significant benefits.
Work from anywhere: virtual desktops are centrally located, and not housed on the endpoint device. This means not housing confidential data on endpoints.
Work from any device: virtual and cloud desktops enable employees to access vital applications from any device, even personal devices, when used with the right endpoint solution.
For many organizations, achieving this will also mean providing VPN connectivity, or an alternative method for ensuring secure connection to the corporate network.
Looking for answers for your own organization on how to solve problems with migrating employees to a Work From Home format? Watch as Rich Severson of Stratodesk shares his expertise on a number of topics, from virtual desktops and VDI, to how his solution helps enable a work from home strategy.
Severson also talks about security challenges affecting work from home, provides tips and tricks on what companies should be doing to prepare for the next disaster, and describes what type of technologies are beneficial with this new remote work paradigm switch.
Stratodesk is redefining endpoint computing by delivering a single endpoint solution for VDI, DaaS and IoT markets. Today's enterprises are moving beyond traditional desktops towards smart workplaces where the diverse network of endpoint devices will create interoperability and compatibility issues without a single unified endpoint solution.
Stratodesk's cutting edge linux-based endpoint OS and management suite, NoTouch, is a next generation, hardware-agnostic solution that enables companies to cost-effectively manage their endpoints. It works across x86 and ARM based hardware products (including Raspberry Pi) to provide a unified platform for your endpoints. It also increases endpoint security, simplifies user experience and allows customers to maximize the benefits of existing desktop hardware (Laptops, Thin Clients, PCs and ARM devices) through PC Repurposing.

VMblog visits the Stratodesk booth during Citrix Synergy 2019 and talks with Hernan Contreras, Sales Director for US and LATAM as well as members of their partner community.
They showcased NoTouch Desktop at their booth including: NoTouch OS, the secure, Linux based, HDX ready operating system that connects to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops as well as other leading VDI environments, and NoTouch Center, the enterprise grade, browser based administration software that helps IT administrators control, manage, configure and update their endpoints from one central location.
In addition to NoTouch Desktop, they also showcased Citrix Ready workspace hub -the Raspberry Pi based endpoint, in action. Powered and centrally managed by Stratodesk's software, the Citrix Ready workspace hub is the next generation endpoint for Citrix VDI and Workspace IoT.
They also had the LG Thin Client Monitor on display at their booth, and educated customers on the new Liquidware/Stratodesk integration.
Stratodesk, a leader in end user computing solutions for VDI, DaaS and IoT, announced today its complete integration with the NVIDIA Jetson platform. This solution will complement Stratodesk's already well received Raspberry Pi offerings for VDI and IoT. The Jetson Nano, powered by Stratodesk NoTouch OS, will be on display at this year's Citrix Synergy in Atlanta, GA (May 21-23), further proving Stratodesk's place at the zenith of EUC and IoT innovation. It also designates Stratodesk as the first ever EUC vendor to present a Linux based "thin" OS for the Jetson Nano.
Stratodesk, a leader in end user computing solutions, is excited to announce Gaston County's success thanks to the Stratodesk/ViewSonic SC-T25 Citrix Ready workspace hub. Gaston County has taken advantage of the advanced capabilities and low price point of the joint solution in order to deliver advanced endpoint computing to their entire VDI. With the solution now in place, Gaston County reduces the average 20 user department PC/Endpoint refresh implementation from what used to take approximately 4 business weeks to 4 business days and reduces basic PC costs from approximately $800-$1000 per workstation to $100 per workspace hub.
