If your business has countless computers and devices or if you’d like to step over into the cloud then a Hosted Desktop solution is something you might decide to consider. Hosted desktops give you the freedom to access your emails, files and business applications wherever you can find an internet connection. You’ll be able to see your own desktop virtually – just as though you were at your office – on any device, be it your PC, laptop or tablet.
Why have a Hosted Desktop?
This being the case, if your business hasn’t already adopted Hosted Desktop technology, it more than likely will within the next few years all due to the number of benefits it brings to the table. These benefits include:
Work from anywhere
Make the world your office with this cloud computing service. If you’ve got an internet connection you can work on your files or access your emails so you can enhance your productivity while waiting at airports, during business trips to hotels or at customer sites.
Work on any device
A hosted desktop will work on any device from Macs, iPads and Android tablets to Windows PCs. What’s great is that if you’ve got a particular business application that only runs on Windows but you’d rather use Macs then a Hosted Desktop will solve that problem!
For many small to medium size companies, a Hosted Desktop service will work out cheaper in the short and long term. Running your own server infrastructure is far from cheap – when you add up the cost of a server, backups, specialists to set it up and support, it’s a hefty sum. With a Hosted Desktop, you no longer need on-site servers, which instantly saves you thousands, not to mention the additional costs of on-going IT support and maintenance. Instead, how about a reliable service with pay-as-you-go pricing, no long contract and the flexibility to decrease or increase users?
In all honesty, how many times have you had a near miss with your important data? Accidental loss happens far too often, but a Hosted Desktops is a great way to prevent this. For example, if your vital data is stored locally on a device that is stolen or lost, all you need to worry about is replacing your device rather than your data. What’s more, your Hosted Desktop will be sitting in state of the art data centres with top grade security – so its protected against any malware and totally locked down.
Hosted Desktops are completely scalable – in other words, they’ll grow with your business. So, if you’re wanting to accelerate growth and develop your business all the while limiting your exposure to risk then a Hosted Desktop could be the ideal solution for your business. Along with that, upgrades are easy. If you’re needing to patch your applications or install an upgrade, you’ll only need to do it once on your Hosted Desktop server and every user gets the latest version.
Every customer is unique and every business is different. That being the case, we know that many companies prefer to tailor their exact business IT needs with a Hosted Desktop solution.
