TD SYNNEX announced a new managed virtual desktop Click-to-Run™ solution for businesses looking to offer remote desktop capabilities. The solution deploys an Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) environment hosted in Microsoft Azure that allows users to access their desktops and applications from anywhere, on any kind of device.
“Many organizations don’t have the time or resources to commit to building or deploying full-scale IT infrastructure for new or remote employees, and a virtual desktop solution can help to deliver the flexibility, scalability and cost efficiency businesses need. The addition of new managed features to Azure’s Virtual Desktop reduces set-up time and allows for easy-to-use services that help customers access their work applications and infrastructure from anywhere in the world.”
Peter Zonneveld, vice president of Global Solutions Aggregation, TD SYNNEX
TD SYNNEX’s Managed Azure virtual desktop solution simplifies the process of provisioning, configuring, and deploying a cloud-based virtual desktop, with mapped-out support to meet customer needs for virtual working. The new offering has two options for deployment:
A standalone feature which provides a quick deployment for partners that already offer managed services and need a quick AVD environment setup. Partners can easily customize the size and scope of the desired AVD environment and deploy this offering in less than 30 minutes.
A managed feature which provides the quick AVD environment setup listed above plus comprehensive 24x7 support and management provided via email, phone and chat; performance monitoring and backup to restore support, efficiently and automatically managed environments while identifying and completing required backup of recurring tasks on AVD; and white-labeled service options including implementation, onboarding, resource monitoring, remediation and patch management services.
“TD SYNNEX recognizes delivering secure cloud-based virtual desktop solutions is essential to ensuring customer productivity while mitigating risks. By adding a services component to these solutions, we are helping partners go to market more effectively, faster, and even more profitably,” said Stephen Ennis, vice president of Services and Advanced Solutions, Europe, Tech Data a TD SYNNEX company. “The Azure Virtual Desktop Click-to-Run™ offering provides a fully managed solution which teams can quickly set up and scale to virtualized infrastructures, while providing a new revenue stream and portfolio enhancer.”

One of the biggest investment growth areas in recent years, has been specialist thematic ETFs. These low-cost funds aim to capitalise on investor appetite for new technology: be it artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, or renewable energy. This month BlackRock launched an ETF that specifically targets investments in the electric car market, which many are expecting to significant reshape the automative industry. Meanwhile First Trust Global Portfolio has launched its own ETF, this time following companies specialising in cloud computing. February also saw the announcements that two veteran fund managers would be stepping down, after 40 plus years in the industry. BlackRock has expanded its thematic ETF range, with a new product tracking the electric vehicle market. With a growing emphasis on sustainable transport solutions this invests in companies involved in the manufacture of electric cars, as well as technology companies that supply batteries and relevant component parts. It will also invest companies that are involved in building the infrastructure needed to facilitate this switch.
