Whether it’s part of your summer vacation or just an afternoon in the coffee shop, the ability to work from anywhere or any device is a blessing. But if you don’t want to have to save everything to multiple locations or carry around extra storage media, the best way to accomplish this is using a cloud virtual desktop.
Most of us have done it. You’re traveling for business, on vacation, or at Starbucks, and ready to work on the important project due tomorrow, only to find that you don’t have the file saved to your laptop. Or the program you need to generate the bar graph for your presentation is only available on the office computer. A cloud virtual desktop makes it possible to have you, and all your employees or coworkers, able to access whatever programs and data you need from anywhere.
Check on the month end reports while sitting on the beach in Barbados or at the train station in New York City. Wherever you are, a cloud desktop has top of the line encryption to keep your data safe, but makes it available anywhere.
Not only does it make it possible to work whenever and wherever the inspiration strikes, it makes the company’s investment in hardware much smaller. Instead of needing every device to have enough storage capacity to house all the programs your employees might need, when you invest in software as a service, your hardware can focus on RAM and processing speeds. Your data can be stored in the cloud, making huge hard drives obsolete and saving you significant money.
