March 24th, 2014 by adminVirtual Desktop – What is it? First, we will calculate what it costs you to install, manage and maintain workstations (computers) for all your employees. This cost, according to industry statistics, runs about $75.00 to $90.00 per month for each employee using a computer. It includes the cost of electricity to run a computer 24 hours a day (most computers never are shut off) and the cost for software licenses and upgrades to software and repair and replace broken equipment and so on. Now, imagine eliminating the PC tower and hard drive and just keep a monitor, keyboard and mouse connected to a Thin Client (little box) that connects each user to the cloud. The best part is there are no workstations and every employee has a tablet (iPad, Microsoft enabled laptop or any other WiFi enabled device) which can then access the internet in some form. Their desktop (PC Desktop) exists in this Cloud World and is accessible from work, home, or any mobile environment you choose. You control the access and email is hosted in the cloud so you eliminate the problems of your Exchange Server or if you have a PoP email account now all emails are managed by one company.
