Hosted Desktop UK - Your office anywhere

HDUK_SchoolsEducation Hosted Education and Training - Hosted Desktop UK offers hosting services to public and private education and training organisations.

Here at Hosted Desktop UK we recognise the need for providers to deliver education and training in a wide variety of situations. Being able to access applications and data remotely via the internet allows you to deliver your message anywhere, and at any time, with suitably connected devices including tablets and smart phones.

A hosted solution offers organisations a practical way of reducing IT costs. We can host your applications or a complete desktop, with the option to include MS Office and Exchange Email, all for a competitive monthly fee. The use of low cost, low power consumption ‘thin clients’ as local machines to connect to the hosted platform means, for example, that it is possible to equip a training suite at relatively low cost, and with reduced software licence fees, when compared to a traditional in-house server system connected to standard desktop PC’s.

As the provision of a hosted desktop is a fixed monthly operating cost, this will help organisations with their cash flow. Once your ‘virtual server’ is set up, new users can be added with minimal notice for a small one off setup fee, likewise they can also be suspended or removed very quickly with no charge, this means you only ever need pay for active users. We also offer a part-time user package where two or more people working different hours can share one login or alternatively we can offer a lower monthly fee for one person working a reduced number of days over the standard working week.

We store your data on enterprise level servers in two of Europe’s most secure data centres, employing the highest level of both physical and virtual security. Your data is backed up daily and replicated hourly to our second site. See more information on Backup & Replication. Having your data stored off site ensures business continuity in case of natural disaster, fire, flood, theft, or criminal damage to your own premises. To get more information on security click here.
