Class VDI terminals are replaced by power workstations
Remote Salava desktops were closed at the turn of January-February and have been replaced by AVD remote desktop service. VDI terminals in classrooms are in the process of being removed. Some of the VDI terminals will be replaced with Windows power workstations.
The exchange of the service platform will achieve significant cost savings both in the server capacity of our own server room and software license costs. In addition to these, the use of AVD reduces the maintenance workload.
