What are the Benefits of Hosted Online Desktop?

Posted on February 5th, 2013 by admin

With the increasingly mobile and on-the-go nature of modern business more and more companies are choosing to transfer the traditional business desktop environment up into the Cloud. A Hosted Online Desktop allows a virtual version of your regular Windows desktop to be securely streamed to your location.

Here at Online Support we can set up this system for you, but what are the benefits of hosted online desktop?

Flexible, Familiar and Reliable

After spending a lot of time working from the same desktop you get used to working a certain way, so it can be difficult trying to do the same things on a different machine with a different set up.

However, when you work from your Hosted Online Desktop your shortcuts, favourites and settings will all be retained – no matter where you are in the world. Also you won’t have to worry about unexpected downtime affecting your work schedule, and we guarantee the security of your data and systems as standard.

Scalable and Standardised

If yours is a fast moving business then scalability will be of key importance, and with Hosted Online Desktop you can add and remove users easily, while you will only pay for what you use.

Ensuring that each user is working from the latest version of documents and files is also taken care of, as this standardisation is a part of our service as standard.

Save Energy and Reduce Costs

In the past, server and PC replacement was a major cost for businesses, however this will no longer be a consideration when you move your desktop to the cloud. As your PCs will be doing a lot less work their natural life will be much longer, and in the event that you do need them to be replaced you can purchase Thin Client machines which cost a lot less and last a lot longer than traditional computers.

As the servers will no longer be on-site you will be able to reduce your energy bill considerably as well, while Thin Clients also use less than half the electricity required to power a regular PC.
