Virtual Desktops for Business

I can’t tell you the number of business owners that I have talked to that love the idea of the cloud but don’t know how to get their business there.  Cloud applications that solve specific business problems like accounting management and cloud computer backup solutions are great, however there is one solution yet to be solved by the cloud (until now)… What is that problem you as? Desktop configuration control.

DESKTOPS IN DIFFERENT PLACES…

We all know how painful it is when you have to switch computers or work from home; none of your files are in the right place, you don’t have access to the programs you need, everything too different to be productive.  While moving from computer to computer, or device to device is a painful experience, yet the popularity of having multiple computing devices is growing quickly.

With the introduction of connected devices like tablets and smart phones, business users have access to information wherever they are.  Yet the user experience of computing is so different across the variety of device platforms that access is almost more of a novelty rather than a productivity booster.

CONSISTENT USER EXPERIENCES WITH REMOTE DESKTOPS

Hosted remote desktop services centralize storage and processing of data, which guarantees accessibility and a consistent desktop experience from anywhere in the world.

Data, programs and settings stored on a remote virtual desktop are all stored in a secure and redundant data center.  A user accesses a remote desktop over the internet much the same way as you watch a YouTube video.  User desktops images are streamed from the data center to your internet connected device, while your keyboard and mouse clicks are sent from your device to the data center, enabling real-time interaction with a remote desktop.

Because remote desktop are stored in a central location, you are always accessing the same computing environment; no more moving and syncing files or buying multiple copies of an application.

Using remote desktops for business guarantee a consistent experience from device to device.  Hosted remote desktops can give businesses the freedom to work where and when they want without sacrificing access to files, programs or settings.

Hosted remote desktops also guarantee the configuration of a user’s desktop computing environment.  By controlling the desktop configuration in the data center, all users in a business have access to a known-good desktop configuration while still having their own private place to store files.

The short answer to all of these questions is yes…  But I figure you might want a little more detail so keep on reading!
