Hosted Virtual Desktop
A hosted desktop is a fully-functioning remote workstation. Instead of being held on local hardware, all software and data is housed in our state-of-the-art data centers. The screen data is then sent via the internet, to an end-user’s device (such as a PC or thin client), while industry- standard encryption ensures security. Keystrokes and mouse movements are then relayed from the workstation to our data centers. This is an entirely seamless process and the end user’s Windows experience is identical to that offered by a traditional desktop PC, allowing interaction with the exact same applications in the exact same way.
Hosted desktops offer numerous advantages in terms of cost savings, security, resilience, flexibility and reduced management. Some unique features of the hosted virtual desktop are:
- Access your desktop from anywhere
- Access using your smartphone
- Fully personalized desktop view
- Fast HD Video acceleration
- Install any Windows 7 Compliant Application
- Upgrade/Downgrade virtual PCs anytime
All you need is a PC, laptop, thin client or mobile device and an internet connection. We do the rest. Because we provide you with a full Windows environment with all the functionality, you will never know you are not using a dedicated PC and you can install additional applications just like you can on a local PC. We will backup, manage and maintain the hosted desktops for you, ensuring they’re available 24 /7.
Hosted desktops remove the burden of managing individual PCs allowing you to concentrate on growing your business and focus on your clients. Information is stored in our highly secure data centers and delivered to you via any Internet browser, so your own, fully customizable desktop can be accessed wherever you are, whenever you want. It is exactly the same as using a PC - simply plug into your broadband connection and you’re ready to go.
