What are Cloud Desktops?

Setting the Standard with SingularisIT CloudStations

In a cloud desktop environment, what you think of as “your computer” is hosted at a data center and delivered to the local device you are using over the Internet.

That makes your familiar computer desktop available to you anywhere, across a range of devices, even your phone. Best of all, the advantages to a remote desktop service are greater than you think.

  • The convenience of taking your desktop with you, simply by logging on with almost any Internet enabled device – computer, laptop, tablet, phone.
  • The peace-of-mind that comes with device free security. If your laptop is lost, your tablet stolen, your desktop down for the day – simply pickup another device, login, and get to work.
  • Dramatically reduce your investment in hardware and equipment maintenance. The lifetime of any device can be extended when the power, the storage, the software, and all the associated updates are happening at the data center, not on the device.
  • Onboard new employees more rapidly than ever before. A new desktop environment can be spun up quickly, with all the permissions and restrictions their position requires. No more hours of installing software instances, dealing with licensing, and buying new machines or cleaning identities off old ones.
  • Disengage employees who are let go or move on at the flip of a switch. No more tracking down every possible access password and deployed device.
  • Implement and manage software changes quickly and affordably, with pay-as-you-go, user based pricing.
  • Have the assurance of a robust backup and redundancy infrastructure. Excellent disaster recovery ability is an inherent feature of remote desktop systems.

At SingularisIT, our CloudStation solutions are designed to be customized and scale quickly to your individual business needs.

SingularisIT CloudStations are a part of our managed desktop offering, Remote Desktop as a Service (RDaas).

Simplifying and Empowering IT at the Same Time

Today’s IT environment can become unmanageably complex. Software upgrades and migrations often force business users to upgrade their machines, including the expense of new servers, desktops, and laptops.

With a CloudStation, the device you use doesn’t even need a hard drive.

When your business IT infrastructure exists at the data center, the threat from hacking, viruses, and malware are vastly reduced. At the same time, the ability for employees and teams to collaborate and share resources and data becomes more mobile and responsive.

We believe the best IT infrastructure is one you don’t notice or think about; it simply serves you and your business reliably, day in and day out. In the absence of hassles, aggravation, and limitations, we free your teams to do business rather than struggle with technology.

Demonstrable Return on Investment

Like any business solution, Remote Desk as a Service (RDaas) must prove itself as a business advantage. Your return on investment is delivered across a range of fronts:

  • Reduced investment in hardware.
  • Expanded convenience and ease-of-use.
