Top 5 Backup and DRaaS Considerations to Strengthen Your Multi-Cloud Strategy
Enterprise IT is embracing multi-cloud as the go-to model for cloud deployments. By 2019, nearly 81% of enterprises will have adopted a multi-cloud strategy. While this trend gives organizations more flexibility overall, it puts added pressure on IT teams to manage backup and recovery in a more complex environment.

Enterprise IT is embracing multi-cloud as the go-to model for cloud deployments. By 2019, nearly 81% of enterprises will have adopted a multi-cloud strategy. While this trend gives organizations more flexibility overall, it puts added pressure on IT teams to manage backup and recovery in a more complex environment.

To reduce complexity and lower costs, it is imperative to deploy a single platform that consolidates management for all of your needs - including both on-premises infrastructure and any public cloud platform you choose.

Which features and functions give you the best opportunity for multi-cloud success?

This special white paper, developed in conjunction with TechTarget, outlines the key factors to consider in maximizing your multi-cloud strategy to achieve:

  • Non-stop business continuity

IGEL Delivers Manageability, Scalability and Security for The Auto Club Group
The Auto Club Group realizes cost-savings; increased productivity; and improved time-to-value with IGEL’s software-defined endpoint management solutions.
In 2016, The Auto Club Group was starting to implement a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution leveraging Citrix XenDesktop on both its static endpoints and laptop computers used in the field by its insurance agents, adjusters and other remote employees. “We were having a difficult time identifying a solution that would enable us to simplify the management of our laptop computers, in particular, while providing us with the flexibility, scalability and security we wanted from an endpoint management perspective,” said James McVicar, IT Architect, The Auto Club Group.

Some of the mobility management solutions The Auto Club has been evaluating relied on Windows CE, a solution that is nearing end-of-life. “We didn’t want to deal with the patches and other management headaches related to a Windows-based solutions, so this was not an attractive option,” said McVicar.

In the search for a mobile endpoint management solution, McVicar and his team came across IGEL and were quickly impressed. McVicar said, “What first drew our attention to IGEL was the ability to leverage the IGEL UDC to quickly and easily convert our existing laptop computers into an IGEL OS-powered desktop computing solution, that we could then manage via the IGEL UMS. Because IGEL is Linux-based, we found that it offered both the functionality and stability we needed within our enterprise.”

As The Auto Club Group continues to expand its operations, it will be rolling out additional IGEL OS-powered endpoints to its remote workers, and expects its deployment to exceed 400 endpoints once the project is complete.

The Auto Club Group is also looking at possibly leveraging the IGEL Cloud Gateway, which will help bring more performance and functionality to those working outside of the corporate WAN.

Enabling non-persistent desktops with Amazon Workspaces
Amazon Workspaces is a great platform if you’re looking for a single data center and persistent desktops, but to deliver non-persistent desktops from multiple datacenters, you’ll need help. FSLogix is uniquely positioned to deliver single image management and user data roaming between multiple datacenters. Read on to learn how.

Amazon Workspaces deserves a lot of credit for being one of the first true DaaS platforms from a big-name vendor, but as IT departments have warmed up to DaaS, there are certain features that are missing. For example, when using Workspaces, you’re delivering persistent desktops to your users. This may be acceptable in small environments, but as you scale up, managing virtual desktops the same way as you’d manage traditional desktops starts to become challenging. Likewise, as you scale out, Amazon Workspaces doesn’t support multiple datacenters, which results in having to manage multiple desktops for each users that requires geographically-specific connectivity.

FSLogix makes products that can transform your persistent, geographically-locked Amazon Workspaces environment into a non-persistent, global platform that can be the future of your desktop strategy. Our App Masking product allows you to manage a single image for all of your users, turning on and off apps easily and in real-time. Profile Container places your users’ data into centralized, user-specific, VHD files that follow each user between desktops, and Cloud Cache technology takes that a step further and allows you to place those VHD containers in any geographical location so that it follows users between datacenters.

For more information on how to take your Amazon Workspaces project to the next level, read on. FSLogix can help, whether you’re an active customer, about to migrate, or just kicking the tires.
