Solution Overview

Together, Nutanix and Workspot provide VDI 2.0. The Workspot Control is a single pane of glass for management, control, and monitoring:

– The Workspot Enterprise Connector is a Windows virtual machine. It runs on the Nutanix cluster and provisions virtual desktops on the cluster.  All security policies, desktop assignments, and monitoring is done via the Workspot Control.

– The Workspot solution leverages all your existing investments in security, apps, and data. The lifecycle of the virtual desktops can be managed using your existing PC Lifecycle Management tools.

– To ensure security, no data traverses through the cloud. VDI sessions connect leveraging RDP, directly from the end point to the VM hosted on Nutanix nodes, and are secured by the SSL-VPN.

– End points (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android) are automatically updated with new features and policies from the cloud. As new features are introduced, about every 6-8 weeks, the Workspot Control and end points are automatically updated without user or IT intervention.
