Wireless technology surrounds us — in the workplace, at home, and many places in between. Mobile phones, WiFi networks, wireless computer accessories, and cordless phones all use radio transmissions for wireless communication. Even devices not used for communication, such as microwave ovens and lighting systems, emit radio frequency energy that can impact wireless devices. In this crowded radio environment, two technologies have emerged as the standard for wireless voice communication in UC and enterprise applications.
Emerging technologies empower, but they can also confuse. Workers in the new mobile landscape struggle to manage communications with mobile phones, landlines, VoIP calls and different voicemail boxes, email, IM, text messages and social networking applications. Unified Communications is the answer. It’s the bridge between all these communication systems helping manage communications with one interface.

Desktop management at any scale is a tedious job. Imaging, reimaging, and troubleshooting desktop systems consume valuable IT resources, and keep employees from being productive. Securing the information generated on desktops, tablets, and smartphones is no simple job either.
Many organizations are deploying virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) for these reasons. But for deployment to be successful, computing and storage infrastructures must deliver high-quality, predictable, and productive user experiences.
Often, the best way to accomplish this is through flash-based storage solutions due to its low latency/high IOPS nature. Unfortunately many IT professionals aren't sure what type of flash array is best for their needs or how to ensure that all elements of their VDI work seamlessly.
