About Nerdio for Azure
Nerdio for Azure (NFA) is an IT automation platform for Cloud Solution Providers (CSPs).
NFA offers ridiculously simple provisioning, management, and optimization of complete IT environments in the Microsoft Cloud. It addresses the critical challenges faced by CSPs in migrating their small-and-medium-sized business (SMB) clients to the Microsoft Cloud, as well as easily managing these environments on an ongoing basis. The company will be exhibiting at Booth 1645 to demonstrate how NFA empowers CSPs and their customers to streamline deployments and management, enhance global reach, and more. Nerdio can migrate entire IT environments to Azure in just a few clicks and a couple of hours.
NFA offers numerous key benefits, such as complete flexibility to configure desktop size on a per-user basis and provide any combination of dedicated virtual desktops and shared RDS sessions for the best combination of performance, isolation, and cost. NFA also supports heavy graphical workloads for engineers and designers, such as the ability to run CAD, architectural, and video editing software using Azure’s GPU-enabled instances. Most uniquely, NFA affords cost savings and optimization through an intelligent Auto-Scaling functionality that automatically adjust compute resources by dynamically resizing or shutting down remote desktop hosts and VDI desktops when not in use.
