Roxville’s Virtual Private Desktop (RVPD) takes a personal computer desktop environment and separates it from a physical machine using a client-server model of computing. The RVPD is stored in Roxville’s datacentre, instead of on the local storage of a remote client. Thus, when users operate their remote desktop client, all of the programs, applications, processes, and data used are kept and run centrally. This scenario allows users to access their desktops on any capable device, such as a traditional personal computer, notebook computer, smartphone, or thin client.
Advantages include the following:
• Cost Savings
Virtual desktops provide multiple opportunities for cost savings, including:
- Reduced software licensing fees (only pay for what you need)
- Reduced deployment and upgrade expenses
- Reduced maintenance and support costs
- Reduced hardware costs (eliminates the need for machines with powerful memory and processing capabilities)
• Ease of Collaboration
Although Roxville virtual desktops are securely connected, the common source point makes it easier for working groups to share information. Productivity tools such as Microsoft Sharepoint and Exchange are especially well suited to this environment.
A virtual desktop provides greater security by making documents independent of devices. This is an important feature given the vulnerability of laptops and handhelds.
If you are looking to reduce overhead expenses, a Roxville virtual desktop solution can yield considerable cost recovery benefits. Give us the opportunity to quickly review your operations and we will provide you with an assessment of your potential savings.
• Geographic Freedom
A virtual desktop provides access to a personal computing environment from any location. This allows users to fill in time gaps and get more accomplished. Sales staff and technicians working in the field can also retrieve corporate information and solve problems faster.
