Virtual Desktops have been around for a while now. In education, we can see, that the use of digital classrooms and digital content is drastically increasing. The case for using virtual desktops is particularly strong in teaching and education, as a lot of the benefits apply in this scenario. Schools have a wide range of end user devices – school-owned or private, educators and students need to access learning content from different places, simple user and access management are important, while flexibility to follow the changing demand in the number of desktops is needed.

All these features, flexibility, and security have to be achieved under very constrained budgets and with minimum staff to set up, maintain and manage the classroom environment. That is why typical enterprise solutions in desktop virtualization are so hard to adapt to school district needs. The large enterprise vendors fail to deliver simple enough solutions, that deliver the level of cost efficiency needed in education. With the range of operating systems, applications, supported hardware, and security needs, IT administrators for school districts need simple but yet comprehensive solutions that take away a lot of the annoying daily tasks.

Apexo Workspaces enable IT teams to set up and manage education desktops from a central location with the highest level of automation and self-service capabilities – essentially freeing up time to focus on other needs.

Reducing Hardware costs.

Very few schools can get away from providing on-campus computers entirely. The bigger the campus and the more computers need to be provided, maintained and refreshed. This puts high pressure on the management time and on already stretched IT budgets.

Implementing virtual desktops not only lets students use their own devices (such as laptops and tablets), but also allows campuses to switch to more cost-effective solutions like thin or zero clients. Latest technologies from thin-client manufacturers also allow converting old hardware into access terminals, which extends the lifecycle for client hardware for up to seven years.

VDI still needs central hardware in the data center. With the approach of Apexo you do not need large scale installations, which gives you even more potential to reduce client computing costs in comparison to traditional enterprise solutions. Apexo can be installed on any x86 server and automatically builds a Hyper converged desktops infrastructure for you. No need for additional hardware or technology.

The consolidation of hardware combined with thin or zero clients also helps you saving on your energy bill. This can be a huge factor for campuses.

Educational content – anywhere.

Education is becoming increasingly digital and mobile. Not only is out-of-classroom work challenging, but also the mix of bring-your-own-device and school owned devices makes matters complex. While college students don’t want to go to computer labs to access a specific application when they have their own laptop and can work from anywhere, students in elementary and high school need access to appropriate programs for homework. The range of devices that need to be supported is a challenge in itself.

Giving students access to virtual desktops to access the required applications resolves the issue. Through virtualization, any application is available on any internet-enabled endpoint, ensuring a reliable and consistent student experience both at school and at home.
