Empower distributed and remote workforces with HPE VDI and Greenlake solutions
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 is 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.
Enabling remote work with VDI and HPE Greenlake
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.

Whether you’re adopting virtual desktop infrastructures for the first time, or your legacy VDI environment is challenged by increasing user and application demands, HPE GreenLake can deliver the security, performance, and compliance benefits of an on-premises VDI solution with the simplicity and flexibility of the cloud. HPE supports, operates, and manages the platform to deliver strong performance and reliability, while you retain full control of the crucial desktop and application environment.
