What is a Cloud Desktop?
The idea is very simple, your “computer” is hosted on a server in the cloud and is accessed from anywhere, anytime. All you need is a web browser and by going to a webpage and logging into your account, you can have full access and control of your desktop. This will be the exact same desktop that you now enjoy on your local laptop or computer, with all the software you need and the documents to work on.
Once you move your desktop to the Cloud, you will never look back. In fact, I can say from personal experience that it has been the most liberating thing I have done with IT ever. No more syncing. No more waiting to get home to work on a file. No more backups. No more software upgrades. No more hardware worries. The technology is solid and the benefits are huge!
Cloud Desktops, or Virtual Desktops have come a long way in the past couple years. Now logging into your virtual desktop, you will be viewing the same desktop experience that you do now, but it just located on a server outside of your home or office. All your setting. All your files. All the software you use everyday. It will all be there ready to go. Efficiency factor goes up by triple digits, quite literally.
When working in your virtual desktop, you will access the files you need and they will be updated in one location. No more carrying around flash drives and syncing files with updates. Or worse, forgetting to sync and losing the updates you made on another computer or device. With the cloud desktop, you will update the file and that is it, done.
The virtual desktop is very easy to access. All you need is any device with a browser. Tablet, phone, laptop, desktop computer, they all work the same and give you access to your “Virtual Desktop” anywhere, anytime. There are no downloads needed, just a browser to enter your desktop.
The features and benefits are to many to ignore.
Here is a partial list of what you can expect by migrating your current local desktop to a cloud server:
