What is a Hosted Desktop?
A hosted desktop (sometimes referred to as a virtual desktop) is a service from Cobweb that enables you to securely access an entire windows desktop through an Internet-enabled Windows or non-Windows device, from anywhere in the world.
The basic infrastructure consists of your data being stored securely in a central location, known as a data centre. You then access your data through a virtual desktop, which is delivered over the Internet on your existing PC or by using a thin client, smartphone or tablet.
Hosted Desktop gives your business:
- Standardisation of corporate desktop, office and email software
- Anywhere access to desktop, email, office and shared data
- Business continuity and disaster recovery, all built in.
