Workspot VDI Key to Engineering Firm's Pandemic Planning

Mar. 20, 2020


Southland Industries was in the process of transitioning to a virtual desktop service when the coronavirus emerged. Combined with Microsoft Azure Cloud, Workspot's virtual desktop service enables engineers to build design-intensive work at home. To comment on the impact of COVID-19 on remote-work, Israel Sumano, senior director of infrastructure at Southland Industries, explains how companies can start making the move to virtual desktops, and the challenges posed by the current public health crisis. "We're very confident," said Sumano. "We planned on being 100 percent Azure-based by December 2020. Most of our data is already on Azure, so it's a very sustainable model going forward, unless there's a hiccup on the internet."
