This is the next post in my series on good ways to apply cloud computing services to best advantage. Cloud computing is great technology but most people don’t have any idea how to actually apply it!
Today I’m going to talk about the virtual workstation, also know as the virtual desktop and why it makes sense for business of almost any size. For this recipe, choose a SwiftWater Telecom cloud powered virtual workstation as either a Linux desktop (starting at $10 per month) or a Linux/Windows Hybrid workstation that can run all your favorite Windows software as well (starting at $25 per month).
The built in VNC software means that the virtual desktop can be accessed from almost any machine anywhere with nothing but a simple web browser. The powerful Nomachine NX software allows you to print from the virtual desktop to a local printer, as well as move files back and forth to the virtual desktop with just a familiar drag and drop, all with a secure connection. Both versions come preloaded with popular software such as Firefox (browser), Thunderbird (email), Adobe Reader, OpenOffice.org (Microsoft Office compatible suite), and more.
What are the advantages of this to any business? No hardware to spend money constantly upgrading, add new virtual desktops without buying more computers, never worry about the time and expense of upgrading system software again, never lose critical business data from losing or having a laptop stolen, never worry about backups again, all data is safely stored and backed up on our highly reliable data center cloud. Turn the uncertainty of supporting and maintaining desktop computers into a simple and predictable monthly charge!
Along with the safety and reliability of the virtual desktop, the business gets the ultimate in flexibility. The virtual desktop and the critical data that employees need is never any further away than the closest Internet connection, almost anywhere in the world.
Drastically reduce the business cost of operating and maintaining physical workstations, gain the extreme flexibility, reliability, and safety of our powerful data center cloud, and go GREEN with an office of SwiftWater Telecom virtual desktops!
