VDI and Hyperconvergence in Action at Covenant Health

Tewksbury, Mass.-based Covenant Health adopted a virtual desktop infrastructure for several reasons, including lower PC capital expenses, a more efficient user experience and greater security and control over data. After adopting VDI, a form of technology that hosts a desktop operating system on a centralized server in a data center, the system saw each of the benefits it aimed for — and then some. Covenant Health rolled out VDI on a hyperconverged infrastructure, and since then the system has avoided $800,000 in annual costs, increased clinician productivity by 20 percent and gained a greater understanding of clinicians' workflows and the patient experience.  

Learn how Covenant Health arrived at its decision to adopt VDI and, most importantly, the six lessons Adam Sherwood, enterprise infrastructure architect for the system, learned from the implementation. In this whitepaper, Mr. Sherwood shares signs of a roll-out done right and other best practices to help other health system leaders undertaking virtualization and modernizing their infrastructure.
