Hosted desktop services - save up to 40% compared to in house IT
Move from CAPEX to OPEX - Better cash management with predictable outgoings.
What is hosted desktop? - Essentially it is having your private server infrastructure housed in a secure highly resilient data centre where pay for what you use when you need it meaning you can add and remove users and features on a monthly basis. This means you don't have on premises server hardware and licensing costs along with all the setup and ongoing costs of upgrades, support and backups for email and any other applications you use. You also don't need to worry about setting up remote access to your office for mobile and homeworkers.
Return on investment - Save up to 40% compared to traditional in house IT costs (servers, software & support).
Highly scalable - Easily add and remove users and services monthly when your staff and requirements vary.
Business continuity - As your data and server structure exists in a secure backed up data centre you are no longer dependant on your physical location to operate as you can access all your data and services from any internet connection. If you can't get in your building for any reason you can still access and function with your business data.
Less pressure to have a high speed reliable internet circuit at the office - The hosted model uses "thin client" technology to connect your office workers to your servers and applications hosted in the secure data centre. Your mobile and home workers also connect from wherever they are to the data centre. This means your office internet access is just another point of access rather than the circuit everyone from anywhere uses.
Get better use from your old PCs - Because in the hosted model your PCs are not required to run the software they are using locally they don't need the same processing power as if they were running the software using their local resources rather than looking at the more powerful virtual machine being used in the cloud. When your staff login and run a browser on the hosted desktop that machine is browsing the internet at leased line speeds.
Security - Is at the heart of hosted desktop. From a secured manned 24/7 ISO 27001 accredited data centre data, through to antivirus hosted desktop provides security at every level. All data is backed up every day removing the risk of lost data from hardware failure and incomplete back-ups. It's also simple to backup data to your local drives as well if you want to cover all the bases.
Persistent desktops - Persistent desktops are delivered on their own virtual machine and allow users to download and run their own software. A persistent desktop provides guaranteed performance, increased application compatibility and enhanced security and tend to be used by power users within an organisation. With a choice of RAM and CPU these desktops handle all use cases.
Storage options - Controlling documents and files, removing business critical data from local laptops and centralising application data are all achieved by moving to hosted desktop. Rocket fast intelligent and resilient software defined storage securely stores all company data ready for authorised access at the click of a button.
Compliance with full auditability - Every action such as creating a user or adding an application such as Microsoft Visio is logged in the portal. Clear real time reporting on which users have which applications and software as well as being safe in the knowledge that all software is fully licensed throughout the company.
