Cloud Desktops

Reach for the sky with a computer environment that is supported by the cloud

A cloud desktop, also known as a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) or a cloud-based desktop, is a type of computing environment that allows you to access the computer desktop and applications from any device with an internet connection.

Instead of storing data and software locally on a physical computer, a cloud desktop uses remote servers to store all the necessary data and applications. You can access the cloud desktop through a web browser or a specialised app, and everything you do on the virtual desktop is saved and synchronised automatically in the cloud.

Cloud desktops are often used in business environments to allow employees to work remotely and access company data and applications from anywhere. We often install and setup cloud-based systems so that users have the flexibility and convenience of accessing their desktop and applications from multiple devices without having to transfer files or software manually.

The individual services we cover:

• Supply and setup Microsoft Remote Desktop
• Supply and setup Citrix Remote Desktops

     

    We can provide Microsoft Remote Desktop Services or Citrix Remote Desktops – whichever you prefer.

    A huge side benefit that is often overlooked with cloud computing, is that the local physical computer hardware does not need to be so powerful as applications are run in the server online instead of natively. You can have all the power of server infrastructure so that you can leverage services for which you would normally need your own server hardware, services such as: 

    • Virtualisation
    • DHCP
    • DNS
    • Active Directory
    • File servers
    • AD Connect
    • SQL (database)
    • Exchange (Email)


    When in the cloud you do not need to worry about keeping server hardware and operating systems up to date, nor need to think about backing up data, fault tolerance, or security. 

    As experienced cloud desktop installers, we are fully proficient in the installation of cloud desktops for business that are just starting out or for established companies that already have plenty of data spread across existing servers and local computers and storage. Either way, we can assimilate and migrate your data to the cloud seamlessly and continue to safeguard that data. Please see our backup and recovery service for more information in that regard.

    Timothy Proctor

    Partner, Proctors Estate Agent in Park Langley, Beckenham, Kent


    “We have relied on Jason and the D8A team to look after our IT needs for many years, with a monthly maintenance contract. During this time we have also carried out some major upgrades, most recently moving to a cloud server. With a lot of unseen work behind the scenes to make all necessary preparations, any such improvements have always been carried out with a minimum of disruption. Jason’s breadth of knowledge ensures any downtime is minimised and we are back up and running without delay. The monthly maintenance also ensures, on a day to day basis, that we experience virtually no issues and foreseen problems are dealt with ahead of time. Jason has efficient systems in place and with good humour and a friendly approach we have enjoyed an excellent working relationship that we hope will continue for many years to come."
