For a few years now, virtualization has started to gain dominance as an IT innovation across most industries, allowing organizations to consolidate server resources, increase deployment responsiveness, and reduce overall IT costs.

The current global landscape has forced organizations around the world to take the necessary steps to support a distributed workforce for an indefinite future. In our recent blog “Technologies that every NYC business should have beyond 2020”, we talked about Virtualization as one of the great enablers of remote work.
There’s no doubt that COVID-19 set the remote work revolution on a fast track. As explained in our blog “Technologies that every NYC business should have beyond 2020”, organizations are now considering multiple avenues to provide a more seamless remote work experience for their people.
