Our Managed Desktop as a Service Solution

Meet CloudDesktop

CloudDesktop is our managed Desktop as a Service solution for business. Businesses can move their desktop environments to the cloud space and access powerful computing resources anywhere, at any time.

Mobility

CloudDesktop provides businesses with anywhere access to their business data and applications. When you are set up with a fully managed virtual desktop environment, users can access their data on the go, using the device of their choice and their authorized credentials. This mobility is increasingly expected of businesses today, and it leads to improved productivity and satisfied employees. It also enables the implementation of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), a growing trend for businesses in all industries. 69% of IT decision makers in the US feel BYOD is a positive move for their organization.

Scalability

Scalability is extremely valuable for businesses of all sizes. CloudDesktop offers unlimited scalability to businesses, so as you experience growth, your CloudDesktop solution can grow with you. This means adding users and deploying new virtual desktops is quick and easy. It also means you never overspend on resources you don’t need, as the cloud can adjust to your unique business cycles, offering exactly what you need, when you need it.

Cost Efficiency

A major benefit of the CloudDesktop solution is cost efficiency. When a business offloads management, maintenance, licensing, compute and upgrade responsibilities to RapidScale, it instead experiences immediate access to the necessary computing resources through the cloud for a simple monthly cost. This is the pay-as-you-go model, which provides organizations with predictable monthly costs that help them avoid over or underspending on computing resources.

Security

When businesses use CloudDesktop, they experience government-grade security for their data and applications. The desktop resources are powered by the latest technology within Tier 3, Class 1 data centers. These data centers provide both physical and network security for a business’ data, as well as around-the-clock monitoring and support.

All Applications

Our CloudDesktop service comes with the ability to either migrate or integrate any applications a business requires in its virtual desktop environment in the cloud. We can custom package your applications, creating a unique cloud environment for you and your organization.

Market Growth

Virtual desktop use is growing because businesses are realizing the benefits. 36.5% indicate that their organization has already implemented some level of virtual desktop use, while 32.5% of those not currently using virtual desktops plan to do so within one to three years.

It is obvious that we are in the center of a universal technology shift. With that being said, cloud computing, fueled by the move to 100% virtualized environments, represents an enormous platform change that is altering the current situation of IT. As this continues to gain momentum, IT strategies must be defined, planned against, and implemented in the context of this new world order versus continuing IT paradigms. Desktop virtualization, or VDI, is a buzz word that has been floating around the IT community for quite a while now. A virtual solution is a cloud application that replaces physical resources with Web-based application interfaces. For example, this allows a user to log into their desktop (virtual, of course) via the Web browser or smart-device app and access their files, documents, music, and whatever else is stored in their cloud-based desktop.

"We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy!"
