In today’s challenging environment, businesses and other organisations want solutions that increase workplace flexibility, enhance employee mobility, make businesses scalable, minimise operational costs and keep valuable data secure at all times. In response to these demands, Gartner predicts that adoption of Hosted Virtual Desktop will top 78 million users by the end of 2016.
A Hosted desktop service is completely flexible and can be scaled up or down according to the demands of your business during any month. Users can be added and removed easily, with the business only paying for the resources it needs, at the point of the actual requirement. A new employee can be deployed with a desktop with all of the applications they need within minutes and because none of the data is stored locally, it is ideal for users who may be using their own device to access the network (called Bring Your Own Device or BYOD).
Hosted Desktop requires no special equipment and as and when your old PC’s reach the end of their lives, you can replace them with much cheaper thin client PC’s that can boot directly into your hosted desktop and have no moving parts. In addition, because you have a fixed monthly cost per desktop, you can more accurately predict what your future IT costs will be.
With a hosted desktop, users can access their files and applications from anywhere with an internet connection, both wired and WiFi; and because our Hosted Desktop is Citrix based (rather than the cheaper RDP only service offered by many of the competition), it will even work over a 3G/4G mobile connection and still feel perfectly responsive. Your people can become more productive, working wherever and whenever they need.
