Remote Hosted Desktop – Work from literally anywhere.
Cloud Hosting Services | DaaS
Access and run your shared business applications anywhere, anytime and on any device using remote desktop hosting.
A Hosted Desktop gives you everything you need to run any or all of your business systems in the cloud. This means you can access them wherever you are: In the office, in a branch office, at home, in a hotel, on the train, anywhere over the internet.
Cloud hosting is rapidly becoming the norm for businesses who want simplicity, flexibility and scalability from their IT. A Hosted Desktop is a form of cloud hosting that mimics the traditional Windows desktop environment but as a Desktop as a Service (DaaS) model. So you don’t even need a Windows desktop to run your Windows applications, the hosted desktop will also run on a Mac, iPad, Android Tablet, even on smartphones.
Remote Desktops is a popular model with large corporates with multi million pound IT budgets but now Hosted Desktops can be simply and cheaply deployed for small and medium business, from one man bands upwards.
Businesses adopting cloud hosting in the form of hosted desktops have the potential to halve their IT costs. Using our hosted remote desktop services removes the need for in house servers and their corresponding support, maintenance, upgrade, and replacement costs.
