hosted desktop benefits

How a hosted desktop benefits your business

To understand what a hosted desktop is, let's first take a look at Software-as-a-Service or SaaS. Unlike a software program that’s installed on your laptop, a SaaS app is hosted on the cloud and delivered to your device over the internet. When you use a SaaS app, your device becomes an input interface and output display, but the processing and storing of data is done in the cloud.

Now, think of the apps and functionalities a computer has, but delivered to your device in one neat package over the cloud. This package is a hosted desktop, which is also referred to as Desktop-as-a-Service or DaaS. [...]

maximize colocation and the public cloud

How to maximize colocation and the public cloud for your business

Many companies are migrating to the public cloud for very good reasons. Cloud technology can help you save a lot of money, improve your operation’s flexibility, and open you up to new solutions that make business processes more efficient. But migration isn’t a practical option for businesses with concerns such as:

Such businesses usually use on-premises (on-prem) servers, invest in third-party private clouds, or implement colocation. Colocation, in particular, is a popular option because it offers most of the benefits of on-premises and cloud servers while being a lot easier on a company’s finances. [...]
