What is a Hosted Desktop?

Hosted desktops, also known as Desktop as a Service (DaaS) or virtual desktop hosting services allow you to work from any location, securely. You have access to all of your files, apps/programs and emails from one virtual platform, hosted in the cloud and accessed via the internet.

You can access your hosted desktop through any internet-enabled device, whether it’s a desktop computer connected via broadband, or a smartphone or tablet using a mobile data connection.

How much does it cost?

Prices are tailored to your specific business needs, and is based on a price per employee per month. So you can combine the certainty of knowing what your monthly cost will be with the flexibility to scale up or down as your business requires it.

Frequently Asked Questions about Hosted Desktop Services from Atlas Cloud

  • What hardware do I actually need to get started with a Hosted Desktop?

    All that you need to access a hosted desktop is an internet-enabled device.

    This can be a netbook, a tablet, a laptop, a PC or even a thin client. No data is stored on the actual device, it is simply used as a mechanism to access your desktop over an internet browser.

  • Is my data secure?

    Your data is hosted in an ISO27001 datacentre by an IS027001:2013 accredited provider with internet banking-grade security – Atlas Cloud provides services to companies like Sellafield, Experian and HS2 so you can be assured that your data will be secure.

  • Where is my data held?

    Atlas Cloud’s primary data centre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK), and they can also back up data to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

  • Who owns my data?

    You do: you always retain the right of your data and can retrieve that at any time.

  • What happens if a device is lost or stolen?

    Your data will be safe as nothing is stored on the end device, it never leaves the datacentre.

  • How easy/quickly, can new users be set up?

    Additional users can be set-up in a matter of minutes. Likewise users can also be removed during quiet periods, if that suits your business.

  • How much bandwidth do I need for Hosted Desktop?

    100kbs per user is usually sufficient, about the same as a VOIP telephone. Atlas Cloud will always analyse your internet connectivity before delivering a solution.
