Hosted Desktop UK - Your office anywhere

HDUK_HostedDesktop Hosted Desktop enables remote working with constant access to all your data and applications, safe in the knowledge that your files are secure and backed up with excellent IT support available.

For the end-user the experience of using a hosted desktop with Hosted Desktop UK Limited is identical to that of a desktop PC – it looks, feels and behaves exactly the same. Your virtual desktop appears as if it was running locally on your machine and is delivered to you in exactly the same way regardless of where you are working, whether this is in the office on a PC or Mac, at home on a laptop or tablet or on the move with a smartphone.

Benefits of Hosted Desktop

  • Work from anywhere – access your IT data and applications from anywhere at any time with an Internet enabled device and Internet connection.
  • IT integration – combine the IT infrastructure of multiple offices and enable your staff to work remotely.
  • Reduce your IT costs – no need for expensive IT hardware, anti-virus software, licence renewals and external IT support. Savings of up to 50% over a three-year period can easily be achieved. View our cost comparison pdfs.
  • Save on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint – save an estimated £94 per annum on electricity per server, and £60 per annum on electricity by replacing a PC with a Thin Client.
  • IT support – we will become your outsourced IT department and you will no longer have to worry about software updates, replacing outdated hardware and dealing with day-to-day IT issues.
  • Security and reliability – all data is stored in secure data centres and we use the same industry-standard SSL encryption as that used for online banking and secure payments.
  • Business continuity – our backups and replication ensure that in the event of a disaster your business can continue as normal.

Our desktop hosting services start from as little as £30.00 per user per month. New users can be added within 24 hours’ notice giving you scalability and a cost effective IT solution. Find out more details on the benefits of a hosted desktop system here.
