Five benefits of hosted desktop
A hosted desktop is a cloud-based solution, offering local PC desktop access from a setup hosted from cloud infrastructure.
Hosted setups are growing in popularity with businesses. We outline the benefits of a hosted desktop setup.
One of the primary benefits of hosted desktop services is the ability for employees to access their desktop remotely, in many cases via a range of devices. Emails, files, and other important data are all accessible, without the need to be tied to the office.
The ability to take advantage of hosted desktop services means businesses can reduce outgoings on expenses like in-house servers and, in many cases, other items of expensive IT hardware. As the desktop is hosted in the cloud, the cost is shared more broadly.
Cloud computing, and hosted desktops by extension, allow for superior scalability. This allows businesses more agility to grow in a way that suits them. Hosted desktops are flexible in their configuration, and easy to change in line with the growing and changing requirements of a business.
The flexibility of access and configuration allowed by remote desktops makes them not only convenient, but a bonus for productivity as well.
The ability to work as and when required means that there’s no delays, no downtime, and no periods where your business has to go dark.
Cloud servers now generally boast up-times upwards of 99.5% – meaning that ultimately your business is able to operate on your schedule rather than the schedule of your hosting company. In the unlikely event of unexpected downtime, regular data backups keep you in contact with your essential data.
