VMware environments offer many unique advantages, but when it comes to VMware printing, expectations are no different there than in any other environment. When users click “Print,” they want the print job to be sent to the correct printer quickly and without fuss. Seems simple enough, right?
Yet admins and end users alike can tell you that this isn’t always how things play out in the real world. Given the challenges of deploying the right printers and drivers to the right users in a virtual environment, VMware printing can suffer from a lack of availability, which results in irritated end users, overburdened IT support staff and loss of productivity.
The question, then, is how to ensure high availability printing in VMware environments. To achieve this, some organizations try to augment VMware’s native functionality with additional VMware printing solutions, but if those solutions don’t integrate seamlessly or provide a full suite of essential, easy-to-use print management tools, they can prove cumbersome and costly to administer.
At PrinterLogic, we understand those potential pitfalls. That’s why our next-generation print management solution works hand-in-hand with the VMware platform to deliver high availability printing—the very highest level of print availability, you could say—in even the most complex VMware implementations. And it’s able to do that by bringing its cutting-edge combination of centralized management, effortless printer deployment, end user empowerment and an incredibly light footprint to VMware printing.
What exactly does PrinterLogic bring to the table?
With PrinterLogic, no aspect of VMware printing or print management goes unenhanced. Its more reliable and granular printer deployments, improved bandwidth efficiency, effortless print and driver management, and elimination of GPOs and even print servers succeed in providing the high availability printing and the simplified VMware printing that help organizations save costs through reduced infrastructure, support and consumables usage.
And to distill that to its most basic: Once you’ve implemented PrinterLogic’s print management solution, every time users click “Print,” their print job will go to the right printer quickly and without fuss.
