    Virtual Desktop Infrastructure: A New Era in Cloud Computing

    The Gutenberg press changed the face of modern printing. The advent of computerized technology changed the face of modern industry. And today? Today, there is a new breakthrough in how we work, communicate and collaborate.

    Welcome to Hostway|HOSTING Cloud Desktop™

    Savvy organizations are loosening the grip of traditional desktop infrastructure by migrating their operations to a secure, reliable cloud desktop architecture. The solution, which is based on virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI) technology, eradicates the cost and risk of deploying individual computers to each staff member. Instead, end-user desktops are safely operated from an off-site data center and accessed via a low-cost client device or traditional PC or laptop. With virtualized desktop infrastructure, no amount of downloaded viruses, lost laptops or spilled beverages will compromise your operations – or your performance.

    Protecting healthcare data information is an imperative within the industry, and compliance and security needs go hand in hand. One of the key benefits of virtual cloud desktops is better security. Cloud desktops centralize content (application desktop and data) access and risk within the data center, where data and individual virtual desktops can more easily be secured and managed.
