The Future Of Virtualization

The increased demand for more computing power has generated more need to invest in virtualization. Virtualization, or the process of using software to simulate a physical system, enables you to increase IT scalability; condense hardware needs; better prepare for sudden emergencies; and streamline servers, network storage and desktop configurations. Old processes required servers that run one application and operating system at the same time. But now with virtualization, multiple operating systems can be made into virtual machines that run on one physical server and still have access to fundamental computing resources through hypervisor software.

Virtualizing your servers will allow you to decrease the need of physical servers, and it will allow you to improve application performance. Like with your servers, virtualizing networks, storage and desktop configurations will also allow you to condense physical hardware needs and streamline operations by providing connected, secure systems.

Another component to virtualization is virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). VDI can provide security and increases efficiency by hosting a desktop operating system on a virtual machine. VDI allows for a highly-available, consistent computing environment both locally and remotely, and it simplifies management of your computing environment. With VDI, IT support staff are better-equipped to manage desktop computing due to powerful centralized management tools that ease the burden of software updates, endpoint security, end-user support, endpoint replacement and future expansion.

VDI in Healthcare

Within the healthcare environment, Meaningful Use has required organizations to quickly embrace the implementation of computerized physician order entry (CPOE). Today, virtualizing desktop environments can enable quicker access to the electronic health record (EHR), encourage new sources of revenue, and help you plan for reducing reimbursements and regulations, such as HIPAA and HITECH.

Clinicians also enjoy the benefits of VDI with streamlined workflows due to drastically reduced desktop login and roaming times. The inherent flexibility of VDI allows clinicians to quickly move from station to station, resume their latest desktop session in a matter of seconds and continue to focus on patient care. With all the right systems and environments in place, other technologies like single sign-on (SSO) can provide additional, significant savings. When coupling VDI with SSO, Kootenai Health, a recent client of T2 Tech, has gleaned over $1.7 million in savings per year through reduced wait times and increased productivity.
