Cloud-based solutions for the workplace are powerful and adaptable tools for corporate decision-makers. Cloud-managed services such as virtual desktops allow for a wide range of practical benefits- desktop compartmentalization, performance increases, enhanced security, and cost-savings to name a few--that traditional IT setups struggle to match.
Cloud services
Virtual Desktops (VD) are operating systems that run remotely, either via the Internet or a local network for the home or workplace. By running the systems on dedicated virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) servers, the entire system is handled remotely and all data is made accessible via the cloud.

The key elements to a VDI approach are the endpoints (user desktops) and the data center (servers). As the user endpoints are only required to run the software required to link with the backend servers, the user machines themselves do not require particularly high performance parts. In addition, with the computing load shifted to centralized data servers, maintenance and performance monitoring is centralized. Faults can be isolated and repaired quickly and without the need for extensive hardware analysis on the user's end.

Benefits of Virtual Desktops

Flexibility and adaptability are the name of the game for modern IT setups, and Virtual Desktops offer users a comprehensive increase in capability over conventional network designs. 


One virtual desktop setup exclusively for communication purposes, another virtual desktop optimized for primary production-related tasks, such as video or photo editing and another desktop organized for writing and research.


A single security breach on any of the Virtual Desktops is limited by both software and hardware firewalls to just that one instance of the desktop--thereby preventing malware or tainted code from spreading to other parts of the network.

Performance and Maintenance

Each individual workstation needs only be capable of running the VDI link while the central hub takes care of the actual computing.

Safety and Security

Enhance the safety and security of company data as all network traffic and computing needs go from user endpoints to the central node and only then out to the broader network. Virtual Desktops do not typically last for more than one user session, ensuring that malware is generally hampered in its ability to survive on the network.

Virtualized Infrastructure and Cost Savings

Each user endpoint is merely a link to the central networking hub. Hardware requirement is minimal thus avoiding the expensive necessity of equipping each individual workstation with high-performance hardware.
