Features Offered By Virtual Desktop Solution Providers
There are a lot of features that providers offer with their virtual desktop solutions. Let’s look at some of them.
You get highly secure virtual desktops as cloud data centers are protected both physically and virtually. Providers offer digital security features like multi-factor authentication, OS patching and hardening, network monitoring, DDoS protection, and many more to keep your data secure. Additionally, you have the freedom to set policies according to your requirements.
You get regular data backup services so that none of your data is lost in case of any mishaps or technical glitches. Virtual Desktop providers backup your data and keep it safe in their data centers for a few days. The number of days depends on the SLA agreement that you will sign with the provider.
Moreover, providers also offer disaster recovery services in which your data is replicated on multiple data centers kept at different locations so that it is easier to restore whenever needed.
Anytime Anywhere Access
The most common feature that every virtual desktop solution provider offers is anywhere and anytime access. You can log in to virtual desktops from any location and the device of your choice, like a laptop, phone, or tablet, offering you mobility at work.
Easy and quick access to virtual desktops increases your productivity. You don’t need to reach the office mandatorily for every meeting, as you can connect virtually and collaborate with the team.
Scalability is an excellent feature offered by virtual desktops if you have a variable workforce where the number of employees in your organization keeps changing with time. You can increase or decrease the number of virtual desktops within a few minutes.
Unlike physical desktops, where it takes time and money to raise the desktop configurations, providers offer quick resource optimization by scaling up or down your virtual desktop resources when required.
Managed IT infra
Virtual desktop providers set up and create virtual desktops on their cloud data centers. They do all the installation, deployment, and updating of the virtual desktops on your behalf to save your time.
Providers can also offer you a unified IT management panel to manage all the end-point devices and activate or deactivate any user from a central location. Moreover, many providers offer round-the-clock support to resolve all your IT-related queries and technical glitches.
Flexible Pricing Models
Providers offer flexible monthly or yearly pricing plans, called pay-as-you-go models. This is an excellent option for small and medium businesses as you can save substantial fixed expenses and shift to operational costs. Moreover, providers offer an opt-out facility so that you can easily opt-out whenever dissatisfied.
