Very few people who are using a hosted desktop will notice that they’re not using a standard PC. As a business owner you should expect your virtual hosted desktop to be securely located in a Tier3+ data centre with a 99.95% availability. Mirrored servers are essential to assist in disaster recovery and business continuity. A virtual hosted desktop can be accessed either through a web browser, through a shortcut link on your traditional desktop/laptop or through a Thin Client system. You can also turn your iPad in to a mobile office and have all essential information available wherever you are.

Prices start from as little as £29 plus V.A.T per user per month, less than you would pay for your mobile phone. This will provide you with a fully secure backed up desktop, which is accessible from anywhere.
