Virtual desktop

Coming soon…

Our virtual desktop is a smart solution that allows you to have all the functionalities of a physical workstation in the most cost-effective way, where you pay monthly, proportional to your usage.  It requires little upfront investment, no expensive licences, no capital expenditure.

Most importantly, a virtual desktop requires no on-site maintenance and is updated securely by our experts, leaving your IT team free to focus on your real business issues. It is accessible from everywhere, giving you and your employees mobility to work remotely with the same efficiency as if you were in the office. You can access your virtual desktop from any computer, including netbooks. Moreover, if you store your files in your virtual desktop, instead of locally in your physical computer, your data is safe and sound even if the computer is lost or stolen.

With a virtual desktop, you can avoid hardware upgrades, as you may enhance features of your virtual computer by simply paying an incremental fee.

Moreover, this solution will let you benefit from a more efficient software licencing model. You pay monthly per user for Microsoft Office licences. Different versions of Office are available (Home and Business and Professional). It gives you flexibility to customise each virtual desktop with only the software that is needed. You save money as you pay just for the applications you really use. It is easy to add or remove applications to your system and you can always have the latest versions of them available.

What is a virtual desktop?

The best way of understanding a virtual desktop is to think of it as a computer with all the capabilities of a normal one, such as hard drive and memory; however, instead of being physically installed in your office, it is hosted in our data centre. It is accessible via the Internet or dedicated connection by using any computer (it does not require a modern or particularly fast workstation). You may use a thin client hardware device, which is a simplified computer, that connects you to the virtual desktop. The advantage of a thin client is that it requires no upgrades and costs much less than a traditional computer.

Your virtual desktop will open in a window and appear to you as just any other computer. You can even work at your virtual and local desktop simultaneously, without needing to log off or restart your computer. Moreover, your virtual machine can be easily integrated with other cloud-based solutions.
