A manufacturer and seller of bass amps, speakers and parts, Gallien-Krueger (GK) has been in business for over 50 years. The company is currently based in Stockton, although it all started in owner Robert Gallien’s garage. When Carlos Santana used one of Gallien’s cutting-edge transistor amps at Woodstock in 1969, the company became world-renowned. Famous bass players that used GK products over the years include Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton, and jazz legend Dave Holland.
Robert Gallien’s bass amps offer the most advanced technology available, so naturally, he wants the best technology solutions for his business. The company uses the SYSPRO ERP application as an inventory and accounting system to ensure everything runs smoothly. SYSPRO ERP integrates into almost every aspect of the business, getting used for inventorying, invoicing, purchasing orders, and more. This integrated solution helped GK build a customer-centric organization. However, it was all made possible by Windows Virtual Desktop.
Windows Virtual Desktop Benefits
Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualization service running in the cloud. At Capital Network Solutions (CNS), we exclusively use Windows Virtual Desktop to host database applications for our clients. Windows Virtual Desktop uses Azure Active Directory identity management service to connect you to your on-premises resources remotely. It all started when CNS technicians deployed and managed virtual machines for GK in the Azure cloud.
Some of the primary benefits of using the Windows Virtual Desktop include:
Security and Regulation
Microsoft invests more than $1 billion every year on cybersecurity research. Meanwhile, Azure offers more compliance certifications than any other cloud provider.
Elasticity and Expansion
Remote desktop services such as Go to My PC only allow one person, while Windows Virtual Desktop can scale for multiple users.
Whether you need support for a cumbersome design and engineering tool or an outdated legacy app, you can host it in WVD.
CNS, WVD, and You
Today, Gallien-Krueger operates like a finely tuned instrument. Some GK employees remote into the company’s legacy desktop in the cloud. Meanwhile, other GK employees simply open the SYSPRO app and run Office locally. And when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, CNS immediately transitioned GK employees to remote work without losing a beat.
