Making IT simpler with virtual desktops

24 Oct 14

Westcon Imagine 2014 - Buying technology isn’t always fun. There’s the hardware decision, the software decision and then the decision on how all of that will be managed, supported and fixed when it breaks.

Steven Robinson, Cloud DC CEO, says virtual desktops have the power to transform that.

“You can have your office ICT delivered to you at an enterprise level, anywhere, any time and on any device on a ‘pay as you go’ model, at an affordable price.

Cloud DC developed OfficeBox with the intent to offer businesses of any size, the ability to manage their corporate data, users and applications with the same level of service as a large enterprise environment, while delivering those same services over the internet.

Robinson says the ability to provide a corporate IT environment from anywhere in the world with an internet connection gives established and growing business the flexibility to have a mobile workforce, which will increase productivity and efficiency while at the same time reducing the overall cost of IT infrastructure and services by at least 40%.

“OfficeBox is transforming the way IT is delivered to a business.

“No longer is it a highly technical challenge that requires highly paid highly trained IT staff to deliver, but it is now a simple,
easy to manage web procurement exercise that any general administrator can perform.”
