INX Announces Deployment of a VDI Solution with Workforce Solutions Alamo Board

INX Inc. announced today that it has been begun deployment of a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure solution for Workforce Solutions Alamo in South Texas.

The Workforce Solutions Alamo serves as the governing board for the regional workforce system, a network of service providers and contractors that brings people and jobs together. The business objective of Workforce Solutions Alamo is to build a premier workforce in America by providing employers and residents with the opportunities, resources and services to develop and gain a competitive edge in the global economy. Workforce Solutions Alamo engaged INX to develop a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution that would help enhance their ability to deliver services in a cost effective manner throughout their region. The region includes 12 counties with 28 locations and over 1,500 users in South Texas.

INX designed a state of the art VDI solution to provide improved desktop support, management and administration for Workforce Solutions Alamo Board. The VDI solution includes technology from VMware, Panologic, UniDesk, Cisco and NetApp. The solution will improve access and availability of technical resources while lowering support costs for work centers throughout the 12 county region. Additional benefits of the green technology include increased security through data centralization and enhanced workforce mobility.

Workforce Solutions Alamo has had a longstanding business relationship with INX and values the innovation INX has provided within Data Center Virtualization and related technologies. Due to the nature of Workforce Solutions Alamo’s core business objectives, INX was able to design this solution to address one of their greatest cost concerns with desktop support. INX has already completed deployment for over 400 virtual desktops with plans for an additional 250 desktops during the fiscal year.

“At Workforce Solutions Alamo, we connect jobs and people. This newest technology helps us better serve our customers and allows us to stay in touch with employers throughout our region with great ease,” said Orrin Garcia, Technology Director for Workforce Solutions Alamo. “INX has truly been a key reason for the successful deployment of this solution set and has effectively worked with our internal staff to deliver a foundation that will allow us to expand in the future. The engineering talent assigned to work on this project has gone above and beyond what you would expect from a service provider and has genuinely showed a commitment and dedication during this engagement.”

Andrew Cadwell, Vice President of Sales for INX said, “We are pleased to partner with Workforce Solutions Alamo Board in their effort to build a connected workforce that is fully enabled and supported through VDI technology. It’s exciting to see how the virtual desktop can be leveraged in such a significant way to gain competitive advantage in the economy.”
