Everywhere a person looks, there is talk about “the cloud.” Cloud computing is taking over the industry. If a person tries hard enough, articles extolling its virtues and reasons to use it can be found everywhere. Pages and pages of search results will inform and educate the novice to the expert on every aspect of this latest computing breakthrough. The bottom line is there is really only one good reason to set up a cloud virtual desktop: convenience.
Cloud hosting is used by individuals and businesses, alike, and with good reason. It has many useful features, each of which warrants a full discussion. The thing for business owners to remember, particularly those who may be on the fence about it, is the freedom and convenience the service provides.
With cloud hosting, the business owner or anyone on the business network has complete freedom. Any device that can access the internet can access the cloud and its services. There is no need to upgrade or modernize equipment. If the existing equipment can access the web, it can access the cloud.
Freedom of workplace is also a virtue. The cloud, like the Internet, can be accessed from anywhere. Employees can access it in the office, at home, or while on the road – preferably not while they are actually driving. It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This gives users the convenience of being able to work on or access files from anywhere at any time. Did the sales manager forget to upload the projection figures for next quarter? No problem. From a tablet, smartphone, or laptop, those figures can be added from the subway the manager is on when the oversight is discovered. A cloud virtual desktop is a versatile, cutting-edge replacement for cumbersome equipment that tethers workers to their desks.
