The Customer: Quasar Limited
The Challenge: A VDI solution that is secure and accessible from anywhere
Quasar Limited had previously not used any virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) software solutions. However, the business needed to publish web-based application content that could be accessible from various browsers (such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome) on both Windows and Mac® operating systems. Virtual browsers posed an added benefit of being isolated from a device’s operating system and could be virtualized as a standalone application in a virtual machine (VM). It was also necessary to make use of secure remote access to business applications from any device, enabling employees to access line-of-business (LOB) applications from anywhere at any time. Moreover, Quasar Limited was looking to expand its IT infrastructure using cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services™ (AWS). Quasar Limited needed a software solution that was able to support on-premise, hybrid, and public-cloud deployments. The business required a secure platform from which to run its online monetary functions remotely, such as managing its casino-based platform.
