Making the shift to cloud? There’s a lot of reasons you might be thinking about it.
Our NoTouch OS and new Raspberry Pi make it easier than ever to access the cloud and all your needed information without copious amounts of capital investment. Whether you go for DaaS or invest in an internal server really depends on what your goals are for your business. Below are a few reasons we think you should consider hosting your VDI in the cloud.
Save on costs by eliminating in-house servers
One of the biggest reasons people choose the cloud has to do with running and maintaining an active server. Running VDI is very complex and requires highly skilled and trained employees (way above your average PC sysadmin guy) and 24/7 attention. Hosting your servers in the cloud offers a VDI installation run, supported and managed by a qualified service provider.
Or maybe you’ve considered running VDI in the past, but when faced with the challenge of finding the funding for licensing, servers, and qualified employees, you became discouraged. With the DaaS model, you can simply make a purchase for a service. No need to hassle with all the other moving parts.
Hosting information in the cloud means increased reliability
What happens when your internal server goes down? Hosting from the cloud eliminates the fear of server issues or failures. There are many issues involved in hosting and maintaining your own data on a designated, on-premise server. When one of your servers goes down, that means extended IT man hours you’ll need to deploy to rectify it –not to mention the headache of dealing with the fallout of hundreds of people unable to do their work.
Hosting your data in the cloud means eliminating these concerns, as you aren’t responsible for the upkeep of the cloud service. If something goes wrong on your service provider’s end, chances are they can just switch you to a working server. Many cloud service providers will even guarantee 24/7, failure-free service.
Enhanced mobility and security means your workers can access the cloud from anywhere
Hosting your VDI in the cloud also has real world implications on the possible mobility and increased security of your workforce. On premise firewalls will no longer entrap workers,. and accessing work remotely becomes a non-issue. End users simply access the cloud to gain access to important work files and programs. This also reduces the risk of important files being lost or compromised. Your data and information is stored securely in a remote location, which keeps it safe from natural disasters or malicious hackers.
With all this in mind, you may want to take the next step by hosting your VDI in the cloud. DaaS (desktop as a service) enables both small businesses and large enterprises access to a robust VDI in a way that otherwise might not be possible. Cut costs, increase productivity, and keep your data safe by investing in a cloud based VDI.
