In many businesses, users desktops are the largest expense, headache, security threat and use of IT resources. One of the most revolutionary uses of a hosted server is to virtualize your user desktops. All of the benefits of Hosted Servers apply to Virtual Desktops, and many more. And CorKat’s Hosted Servers are the ideal platform to virtualize user desktops.
Imagine your user desktops running on managed server-class hardware in a secure and redundant data center, connected to multiple high-bandwidth internet connections. Your team connects from any internet connected device – PC, Mac, Linux, tablet or smartphone, from the office, home or the road. You can continue to use your existing or legacy hardware to connect, or simple-to-manage and affordable thin- or zero-clients. Now all of your business resources can be available anytime anywhere.
Terminal Services Remote Desktops – RDS
By using Remote Desktops (RDS), users securely connect to a terminal server for their desktop. Each user’s applications run directly on the server using that server’s shared operating system and resources. The advantage is simplicity, as terminal services have simpler infrastructure needs and costs.
VMWare Virtual Desktops – VDIs
Virtual Desktops, connect users securely to individual virtual machines running on a hosted server. Each Virtual Desktop is a dedicated virtual machine, with dedicated resources, & each has its own operating system. VDIs provide users with a familiar Windows desktop experience, including greater degree of personalization than an RDS.
Virtualization & Remote Access
With Virtualization and Remote Access, your computers live on server-grade hardware in our secure high-end data center, and monitored and managed by our team of network experts. You access your server and desktops from any internet-connected device – PC, Mac, Linux, tablet, smartphone or thin/zero client – from anywhere as if it were your local desktop. Think of it like your monitor, keyboard and mouse have a really long cable (via the internet) to your computer in the data center. Everything is accessible from anywhere – convenient and secure.
