Five Common Questions About Virtual Desktops
What Is Virtual Desktop Hosting?
As the name suggests, virtual desktop hosting moves your applications and other computation-heavy tasks to a remote server. This means that your company no longer needs to continue investing in on-site servers, which can be extremely expensive to maintain. The day-to-day experience is exactly the same as a traditional desktop — all of the applications you and your employees need are available and ready for use.
Can a Virtual Desktop Help Me Save Money?
Yes! As we briefly mentioned above, a virtual desktop allows you to offload the computation-heavy aspects of your operation to our servers, which means that the technology you’ve invested in is much more likely to last longer and operate more efficiently. If you’re running a startup company or you’re simply looking to control the ballooning costs of managing your workforce’s current IT infrastructure, a virtual desktop service is a smart choice.
My Employees Are Now Working Remotely. How Can Virtual Desktops Help?
Although many workforces have now been working remotely for most of the year, it can still be a challenge to ensure that every employee has the tools and resources they need to work just as efficiently from home as they did in the office. Because virtual desktops can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, and from virtually any device, your employees instantly have the ability to access all of the data and applications they need. If they have a device and internet connection, they’ll be able to log on and get to work.
Are Virtual Desktops Reliable?
Virtual desktops aren’t just reliable — they’re often more reliable than traditional hardware. An unexpected breakdown or outage can be devastating to operations of any size, but virtual desktops provide an IT infrastructure that is much less likely to break down and force your team to pause their work. From network updates, installations, troubleshooting, and other factors that would normally put a freeze on productivity, virtual desktops help you maximize uptime. In fact, CyberlinkASP guarantees 99% uptime!
Are Virtual Desktops as Secure as On-Site Technology?
Yes, virtual desktops are just as secure as on-site technology. In many cases, they’re actually more secure. Consider the fact that more than 12,000 laptops are lost in airports across the country each and every year. With more companies working remotely full-time, this presents even more opportunities for critical data and sensitive information to fall into the wrong hands. Virtual desktops provide the hardware on which the virtual desktops are hosted, which means that the individual machine doesn’t physically have any sensitive information stored on it.
Moreover, virtual desktops create a smaller internal network, which makes continuous monitoring much easier. Each machine is also more independent, which means that even if an individual machine is compromised, the attack or breach will be much easier to contain.
