Hosted Desktops

Akita’s hosted desktop solution allows for PC desktops to be moved from individual machines into the cloud.

A hosted desktop solution allows for the delivery of a consistent and scalable IT experience for all users in an organisation.

With a hosted desktop solution, users gain access via a desktop icon or link. This then provides them with access to a cloud hosted desktop setup with all the programs, applications and files that they would usually have on their PC.

Hosted desktop environments can be set to be accessed securely from any device and any location. This makes hosted desktops a perfect solution for supporting remote working.

Hosted desktops also work well for businesses with offices spread out geographically, as it allows for the management of all desktops simultaneously from just one location.

Advantages of hosted desktops

Simple management: A hosted desktop solution allows centralised management of all of an organisation’s desktops. Updates and security patches can be deployed to all desktops simultaneously, saving time on IT administration and maintenance. The hosted environment is also protected from viruses and malware.

Flexibility: A hosted desktop environment offers flexible access to an organisation’s IT systems. Users can work remotely yet collaboratively on documents with other people within an organisation.

Organisations can also setup remote access to specialist software, such as design or accounting programs, allowing users to work using these solutions anywhere they can get a connection.

Lower hardware costs: With a fully cloud-hosted desktop setup, the majority of computing processing occurs within the cloud. This means businesses can invest in less powerful, cheaper PCs and laptops.

Choosing to run a hosted desktop setup from Akita’s cloud network also eliminates the cost of servers, hardware upgrades and maintenance.

Disaster recovery: Hosted desktops run from Akita’s cloud network provide you with business continuity. Should your workplace be damaged by fire, flood or similar, your data will be unaffected. Users can continue working from other locations with minimal disruption.

Hosted desktop as a service

Akita can provide a fully-managed hosted desktop as a service (DaaS). We can setup hosted desktop infrastructure on in-house server or from our own secure cloud environment.

Akita can configure security solutions to allow access to hosted desktops from all devices, including staff’s personal devices if desired.

Should you wish, our hardware experts can select PCs and laptops for you to use with your hosted desktop setup. We’ll select solutions with the right processing solution, but that won’t cost the earth.

And with our IT support, Akita can also manage and maintain your hosted desktop setup for you. With 24/7 monitoring and guaranteed SLAs for support, you’ll always have the support you need.
