Cloud Desktops use a virtual machine operating system to run all the hardware, operating systems, applications, and data that can be individualized and delivered to each user’s device. This allows for multiple users to essentially share one operating system to run multiple desktops. Being able to free up devices from having to have one operating system per one device means IT administrators can rethink how older physical desktops can be used as virtual desktop endpoints.
Cloud Desktop end users are not limited to just hauling around bulky laptops and downloading files to memory sticks to get work done. They can log in to their personal virtual desktop from any internet-enabled device when they want and, in most cases, anywhere in the world. Remote workers no longer put up with hassles of time-intensive user experiences to access “work” and perform their jobs. They want to be able to work when and how they want. So, whether it is from the office, in their homes, or on the sidelines at soccer practice, they expect a seamless experience. By providing a virtual desktop option, businesses keep their staff safe, happy, and productive.
The use of Cloud PC solutions means that users are no longer tied to a physical device or physical servers. That means fires, floods, snowstorms, or hurricanes cannot harm physical devices in the offices that would support them. Cloud-based data centers that run Virtual Desktops are located away from high-risk weather zones and provide secure 24/7 access to your resources via the cloud. The only element that could interrupt work using Virtual Desktops would be the loss of internet connection.
