dinWorkspace – Hosted Virtual Desktop Overview
Hosted Virtual Desktop (HVD) is a cloud computing solution tailored for flexibility, productivity and security. To help you decide whether to go for an HVD, let’s discuss some of its key features and advantages.
What is Hosted Virtual Desktop?
HVD is just like your regular personal computer but with a difference that all your applications and data are stored at a central server. This may be located within the organization or in the data center of a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud.
How do You Access Your HVD
To access your dedicated dinWorkspace, you will simply enter the provided URL or visit dinCloud’s official website. You will then login using your unique credentials and have full access to your data and applications. You can start your work right from where you left off on the pervious login.
Why Choose HVD?
Below are a few compelling reasons you should switch to a Hosted Virtual Desktop instead of a conventional personal computer.
With HVD, your data and applications move with you. You can use multiple devices such as smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop to access your apps and data over the HVD.
If you have an HVD, you can remain productive even without turning up for work. All your data and applications are accessible from the comfort of your home or while you are on the move.
The server that houses your HVD packs a lot of processing power. Any task you execute on the HVD will use the resources of the server, instead of the machine used for login. This will result in efficiency.
You can access your HVD from devices running different operating systems. The compatible operating systems include Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS and Android. The broad choice of operating systems makes HVD a highly versatile cloud solution.
In HVD, the resources of the Cloud Service Provider will be used. You can execute work even from a low spec machine or device. This will save you the additional cost of keeping your personal hardware up to date.
In case of HVD, all your data and applications will be stored safely in a central server of the Cloud Service Provider like dinCloud. There are multiple layers of security before access is granted to the sensitive data.
Another advantage of centralized storage is that even if your login device such as a smartphone or laptop is lost or stolen, your applications and data will still not be accessible by someone else.
The data centers of Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) like dinCloud comply with industry leading standards of data security. At times, this is also mandated by the law when data of sensitive nature is involved.
One more advantage of using an HVD is that CSPs use licensed software and productivity applications. This results in a seamless user experience, unlike a pirated software that keeps crashing or generating errors.
