What people say about our service
Zero Desktop Support Strategy
Your Office Anywhere was the only organisation I approached that immediately understood Age UK Essex’s zero desktop support strategy. They fully understood the concept of using Chromebooks and other devices (including Windows) to deliver a managed Windows desktop environment to support legacy dependencies that fully integrated with our Google Apps deployment. Your Office Anywhere then went on to work with me to produce a detailed technology specification to a tight budget. I was impressed with Your Office Anywhere’s “can do” attitude, extensive knowledge and willingness to prototype solutions at low risk to Age UK Essex. Your Office Anywhere have continued to deliver excellent customer service which is cost effective and responsive.
Sage on a Hosted Desktop
When we opened a second distribution depot we really needed access to Sage in both places. Sage Drive didn’t work for us due to having bad internet upload speed, it made data transfer slow and kept crashing. YOA was the perfect solution, this allowed access across the two sites but also it enabled working from home. Set up was very easy and if we had a problem they were quick to resolve it.
Sage & Office Hosting For 40 Users
The system is performing very well for the users. End user feedback has been very positive with the increased performance being the main point raised.
Hosted Desktop Solution
Everything has gone well with the transition – it’s been a bit of a learning curve for the users but I think we’re nearly there and overall their impressions have been good. Your support staff have been a credit throughout – good knowledge of the systems and very helpful despite an avalanche of request in the first few days!
Hosted Desktops For Remote Workers
I have staff that work remotely and I need them to be able to use applications in the cloud. Your Office Anywhere understood my issue and concerns and provided me with a solution that is exactly what I needed.

What is a Hosted Desktop?
What is a Hosted Desktop?
The term Hosted Desktop covers a range of technologies and services that are designed to provide a virtual computer desktop environment, with all its range of applications and utilities, that runs not on the individuals PC, but on a hosted computer in a dedicated data centre and accessed over the Internet.
How does a Hosted Desktop run?
A Hosted Desktop is commonly run on a Windows server based operating system which has a familiar look and feel to people used to working on a Windows PC. Hosted Desktops are accessed using a Remote Desktop “Client” application such as: Microsoft Terminal Services Client, Microsoft Remote Desktop Client or other 3rd party applications such as Ericom Blaze. Remote Desktop software is available for most operating systems so the hosted desktop can be accessed from a wide range of devices including Windows PCs, Tablets, Mac, iOS (iPads, iPhones) and Android tablets and phones.
Hosted Desktops – How providers operate
Hosted Desktop providers typically operate from secure industry standard data centres which provide the security and resilience expected by enterprise class organisations but are shared across hundreds or thousands of individual customers, all benefiting from the economies of scale. Hosted Desktops often have features including: multiple Internet connections for resilience; multiple power supplies into the data centre, with diesel generators to cover power cuts and battery UPS to cover the transition. Other security measures will included 24hr security, CCTV, fire, smoke and flood detection and secure building entry control measures
Characteristics of a Hosted Desktop
Hosted Desktops were designed as a solution to improve application sharing across multiple sites, remote working and the ability to scale up or down easily. They are also an easy and simple route into IT outsourcing.
A Hosted Desktop platform usually includes all the surrounding infrastructure and support services needed to securely connect over the Internet. This will include user authentication, digital certificates to encrypt communication, backups of data and operating systems as well as anti-virus, Windows updates and general server support.
A Hosted Desktop may also be found under other names including: Hosted Remote Desktops, Hosted Terminal Servers, Hosted Remote Desktop Servers, Cloud Desktops or Hosted VDI.
Hosted Desktop Pricing
Pricing for hosted desktops is usually on a per user basis often with an initial monthly charge for the first desktop application which will also include any Microsoft Licences such as Windows Server CALs (Client Access Licences) and Remote Desktop CALs.
Additional products or services can then be added as required including additional resources (memory, CPU), extra storage and also additional services such as SQL Server instances or web servers. Providers can also include licences for other Microsoft products including Microsoft Office, Project or Visio, mostly these will be offered under the Service Provider Licence Agreement (SPLA) licencing model but also some Enterprise plans of Office 365. Some providers base their pricing on the actual resources required e.g. x GB of Memory. Others offer a more managed service where the customer doesn’t need to know the technicalities of the service only what applications and how many users.
