dinHVD – Virtual Hosted Desktop

Hosted Virtual Desktop (HVD) is a cloud computing solution tailored for flexibility, productivity and agility. To help you decide whether to go for Virtual Desktop Service, let’s highlight some of its key features and advantages.

What is a Hosted Virtual Desktop?

HVD is just like your regular personal computer but with a difference that all your data and applications are stored at a central Cloud Hosted Server. This is located within one of the data centers of a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud. Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops are also referred to as Hosted Workspaces. They are indeed a complete productivity solution, especially for your employees working remotely, or from their homes (WFH).

At times, you will also come across the term, Desktop as a Service or DaaS. This is yet another explanation of Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops, where the underlying infrastructure is sourced from a third party Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud.

How to Access Your HVD?

To access your dedicated Virtual Hosted Desktop, you will be using a technology called Remote Desktop Service. You can simply access dinHVDs by using your unique login credentials. As soon as you login, you’ll have full access to your data and applications. You can start your work right from where you left off, in the previous session.

Why Choose HVD?

Below are a few compelling reasons why 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, round the clock.


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 improve efficiency.


You can access your HVD from devices running various operating systems. The compatible operating systems include Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android, making our HVD a versatile solution.


The HVD will use the resources of your CSP. You can execute work, even from a low specs machine or employee device. This will save you from the additional costs of upgrading on-premise hardware.


In case of HVD, all your data and applications will be stored safely in a central server of the CSP, like dinCloud. There are multiple layers of security in place, before a user can access sensitive data.


As a leading CSP, the global data centers of dinCloud comply with industry leading standards for privacy and security. At times, this is also mandated by the law, especially when data of sensitive nature is involved.

User Experience

One more advantage of using an HVD is that CSPs use licensed software and productivity applications. This results in a seamless user experience, unlike pirated software that keeps crashing or generating errors.
