Desktop virtualization isn’t a new subject, but it is something that has been gaining popularity over the past few years, and it’s easy to understand why. Instead of keeping your desktop physically on your computer, it’s becoming more reliable to just keep it safe and secure on a hosted server. This takes care of most physical problems that computers often deal with, such as a sudden crash or old age.
Faster Set Up Time
Besides the longevity that desktop virtualization offers, it provides many other advantages for a small business. Traditionally, you have to install new machines with new applications and new software every time a new employee joins your ranks. This takes several hours. Virtualization can cut down on the time your company spends preparing desktops for your employees and help to streamline the way you use your technology. Quikteks can assist you with virtualizing your desktop with our remote IT services.
The more advanced technology gets, the more economical it is to let your employees work remotely from their own devices. However, setting up each device individually can be an expensive proposition for your company. If you allow your employees to do the setups themselves you are putting your company’s information at risk. Virtualizing your company’s desktops minimizes the chance that something dangerous could happen to your data, and allows your employees to access the desktop using their own hardware, provided they have a secure connection.
Super Easy Maintenance
Utilizing a virtualized desktop makes maintenance easier. Instead of dealing with systems that are significantly slowed by downloaded software, the virtual desktop resets upon logging out of the system. This increases performance speed and makes troubleshooting easy as pie. If you don’t know what the problem is, all you need to do is restart the computer. If the problem doesn’t fix itself, Quikteks can access the desktop remotely, isolate the problem, and fix it. Our remote IT services can save your company time and money by immediately taking care of issues as they occur.
Better Controls Make for Better Security.
Most basic IT related problems associated with small businesses can be avoided by simply using a virtualized desktop. Employees occasionally download software and wind up spreading malware or viruses to your company’s network, but with desktop virtualization, you no longer need to worry about that. Setting up permissions allows you to control what your employees can and cannot down load to their desktop. If something still makes it through your permissions, Quikteks will be monitoring your system and quickly fix the problem remotely.
All of these advantages point toward the most important aspect of desktop virtualization – it will reduce your company’s costs. With Quikteks’ IT services, you won’t need to hire an IT department to fix your problems. Contact Quikteks at (973) 882-4644; your budget will thank you later.
