Hosted Desktop UK - Your office anywhere

HDUK_Government Hosted Government - Hosted Desktop UK offers hosting services to meet the needs of central and local government organisations.

Here at Hosted Desktop UK we specialise in the provision of reliable and secure hosting services to a wide range of government and professional service organisations. A hosted solution offers government organisations a practical way of reducing IT costs, whilst still having a system that can help them manage growing demand for services from the public, in spite of contracting budgets and resources.

We can host applications, or a complete desktop, all for a competitive monthly fee, thus saving on the cost of running expensive in-house servers with their associated support costs. The use of low cost, low power consumption ‘thin clients’ as local machines to connect to the hosted platform reduces initial or replacement equipment costs and also long term running costs. A hosted solution is also ideal for organisations operating from multiple locations; every staff member is able to access the same data from anywhere in the world with an internet connection and a suitably enabled device.

As the provision of a hosted solution 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 desktop. Alternatively we can offer a lower monthly fee for the basic desktop for one person working a reduced number of days over the standard working week.

We understand that security of data is a concern for any organisation, here at HDUK we store your data in two of Europe’s most secure data centres employing the highest level of both physical and virtual security. Both centres are situated in the UK and are ISO27001 and PCI DSS compliant. 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.
