Hosted Virtual Desktops

Virtual Desktops – providing you with the ultimate work environment


A Hosted Virtual Desktop provides a similar user experience to a normal Windows desktop except that all the things running on the desktop – icons, windows, applications, folders, taskbar, and start menu – are running remotely on a server instead of a PC.

A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) uses desktop virtualisation software which separates the desktop operating system, applications and data from the local hardware, instead storing this Virtual Desktop on a remote server.

In a Hosted VDI environment users access the virtual desktop over the Internet.


What Is A Virtual Desktop Windows 10? 


Windows 10 Professional, Enterprise, or Education included the Hyper-V feature so you can create your own virtual desktop Windows 10.

A Hosted Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (hosted VDI) means that the hosting provider looks after the infrastructure providing a fully managed Desktop-As-A-Service (DaaS) solution giving business users cloud based virtual Windows desktops to access their documents, data and applications without having to worry about managing or supporting a complex, on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure.

At Your Office Anywhere this service includes managing the anti-virus and the Windows updates as well as backing up the data, documents and the virtual operating system itself.


What are the benefits of Hosted Virtual Desktops?


  • No contracts – freedom to increase or decrease user numbers as needed, or cancel at any time.
  • Just pay for the number of users you need each month. This helps save money compared with managing traditional desktops and on-premises Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions.
  • Easily share business applications and documents with users regardless of whether they are on the same site, different branches or working remotely.


  • Avoid upfront investment costs
  • Avoid financial risks investing in costly solutions that may not match your business growth.


  • Avoid the challenges of managing, maintaining, patching, and supporting your own on-premises VDI solution.
  • Support for multiple devices, access your Hosted Virtual Desktop from Windows, Mac, iPad, Android Tablets, Chromebooks and Kindle Fire.
  • Access from anywhere there is an Internet connection.
  • The bandwidth requirements for hosted virtual desktops are very light weight so even a low bandwidth connection will work.

Remote Desktop Services


At Your Office Anywhere we run a type of Hosted Virtual Desktop Infrastructure called Remote Desktop Services, sometimes called Hosted Desktops. With this type of VDI solution all the users’ desktops run on one Windows server. This has several advantages over individual Virtual Desktops including:

Software Updates

  • You only need to update software applications once on the server and everyone gets the update.
  • There’s no risk of users accidentally running different versions of software.
  • If you need to upgrade the operating system this is also only done once, there is no need to upgrade every single virtual desktop.


  • A Hosted Remote Desktop service is much more cost effective than other forms of VDI.
  • Only one operating system exists so storage costs are much lower.
  • Only one operating system licence is needed so licence costs are lower.
  • Everyone has the same consistent environment so people are more productive and support costs are lower.
  • Resources (Memory and CPU) are pooled across all users providing a much more efficient use of resources and so reducing costs.

Security and Data Protection

  • All data and documents are held centrally; no data is held on either the individual user’s virtual desktop or the user’s local device.
  • All data is backed up.
  • Less risk of Data Privacy or GDPR violations.
