Within cloud computing, Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVD) are a mainstream technology. However, a transition from on premise IT infrastructure, whether wholly or partially, is a strategic decision that needs serious consideration on your part.
Once your enterprise has made the decision to adopt HVDs, the next most important step is selecting the right Cloud Service Provider (CSP) for your existing and future needs. You will also have to consider the ease of migration when selecting a cloud provider.
In this post, we will highlight some key differentiators that make dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD) a superior platform than other HVD solutions out there.
State of the art Architecture
The quality of your user experience (UX) in the cloud mainly hinges on the technology stack of your cloud provider. Delivering robust and highly available cloud hosted virtual desktops involves seamless integration of many individual technologies into a cohesive whole.
dinCloud constantly invests in procuring and maintaining the latest hardware as well as software for its global cloud infrastructure. This results in a virtual desktop experience that is either at par with or even better than your conventional desktop PC.
Transparent and Flat Rate Pricing
Pricing of cloud services including hosted virtual desktops (HVDs) may become a tricky affair once you start factoring in the hidden costs. At dinCloud, we strongly believe in transparency and the biggest testament to this approach is a flat rate pricing model.
With dinHVDs, there are no hidden costs such as data migration fees, bandwidth charges and more. You enjoy a highly predictable and reliable virtual desktop experience with unparalleled peace of mind.
Wide Range of Virtual Desktops
In cloud services, you have to pay more for every additional feature or spec. At times, you may even be charged by cloud providers for features you may never require or use. This is mostly due to lack of choice in the offered variants of virtual desktops.
dinCloud is fully awake to this need of cloud users. We offer a wide range of HVDs, from low end to the high end ones, so that you can choose the package that best fits your needs, without paying for the specs you don’t actually need.
This wide range of dinHVDs extends to specialized workloads such as graphics, architectural applications or other processing intensive workloads of the sort. This allows you to choose the most optimal virtual desktop package, without cost overruns.

Built-in Disaster Recovery (DR)
dinCloud has a global footprint of state of the art data centers. For the best performance, our data centers are seamlessly connected. In the rare event that one of our data centers can’t serve users efficiently, the mission critical workloads are shifted elsewhere.
These workloads will immediately be taken over by the other most feasible data center(s) of dinCloud, resulting in a fail safe mechanism for Disaster Recovery (DR). With DR built into the virtual desktop service, you save additional costs and administrative hassles.
Ease of Management with dinManage
At the enterprise level, you constantly need an oversight of your cloud service, whether it’s dinCloud’s hosted virtual desktops, servers or databases. With this goal in mind, dinCloud offers it’s valued HVD users a unified cloud management portal called dinManage.
dinManage is a very intuitive and user friendly portal to manage most aspects of your cloud service from a single user interface. This includes tasks such as role management, access management, application assignment and much more.
Best in Class Cyber Security
At dinCloud, we adopt a holistic approach to cyber security that begins with our cloud infrastructure and ends right at the endpoint devices of our valuable cloud users. An impregnable cyber security is only possible via this all encompassing approach.
At the infrastructure level, dinCloud relies on multi tier security mechanisms that include virtual firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention tools, encryption, two factor user authentication (2FA), ransomware and malware protection.
To secure endpoint devices through which our valued users access their cloud workloads, dinCloud has integrated one of the world’s best security suite, which is Sophos Intercept X for Endpoints and Servers.
This world class security solution provides a proactive and effective security posture even at the level of endpoint devices, which are mostly exploited by cyber miscreants to gain unauthorized access. With dinHVDs, your data and workloads are in safe hands.
These were some of the main facets of dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD) that make it a highly secure, robust and reliable productivity platform over the cloud. On top of all this, you enjoy best in class cyber security and 24/7/365 Customer Support.
