As well as organisational benefits, there are also strong social and environmental benefits as well. Through its adoption, Hosted Desktops provide a better way of working for employees whilst also naturally reducing the carbon footprint of an organisation.
The reason IT previously was so expensive was because of the need for in-house servers on a private network that employees could access securely for shared files and applications. This required a high cost of hardware and software along with the cost of in-house IT staff to service the need.
Hosted Desktops removes this problem as you no longer need in-house servers. Secure data centres housing powerful enterprise servers are used to create virtual servers with disc space, processors and memory allocated based on the number of employees you have and applications you need to run.
On these servers we then install and manage everything for you – including providing you with the latest enterprise-class software such as Windows Enterprise Server 2008, Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Microsoft Exchange 2010. At pricing charities and small businesses can afford.
No longer do you need to rely on working on the same computer or working in a single location. With any computer device you can securely connect to our data centres and your Hosted Desktop is broadcast to you - keeping you firmly connected to your files, applications and team members at all times.
With Hosted Desktops you can grow as fast as you need to as the resources in the data centres scale seamlessly with you. If you need to downsize, which is happening with the current economic crisis, the resources scale down with you ensuring you are only ever paying for what you need.
