Virtual hosted desktops offer everything that your standard desktop has to offer but with various benefits and advantages. They have no up-front costs and lower monthly costs, offer a range of applications that includes remote backup, disaster recovery, and advanced security software. You will always have access to the very latest software updates, too, which will make your working experience a safer and more advanced one. This range of benefits is why more and more businesses are turning to virtual hosted desktops.
Remote data backup is a practice that every company should undertake. It helps to protect your business in a multitude of ways. Should disaster befall your property or your company you can quickly retrieve data that would otherwise have been lost forever and you can do so quickly, easily, and from any location whether it is your new permanent location or a temporary one.
Virtual hosted desktops include data backup and retrieval as standard. When you save a file you save it to a secure server, in a secure data centre. If disaster should strike then your data and even your software will be completely unaffected. You can log on from home or from a temporary premise in order to access the data and keep working while the rest of your recovery procedure is put in action.
Despite this benefit, virtual hosted desktops are considerably cheaper than hosting everything yourself. There’s no need to buy a server or install server software. Your network is considerably easier to set up and maintain and you won’t pay as much on a monthly basis either. As such, hosted desktops offer both up-front and monthly cost savings making them the most affordable solution. You also receive all the software you require.
Collaboration is important to the modern business and with more and more people working remotely and with more and more processes being outsourced to third parties, online collaboration makes sense. Virtual hosted desktops enable you to save files at any location and access them from any other location. Work from home, on the train, in the office, or from your customers’ premises as and when you need to.
