Comprehensive inbuilt back-up solution

All of our Hosted Desktops are backed up using 4 different methods:

Snapshot Backup – Our Storage Area Network (SAN) will take a snapshot of its data every 4 hours throughout the day.This means we can restore servers and files at any point within a two-hour period.

VM Backup – We take a VM Level backup of each server daily using Veeam technology. This means that a Virtual server can be restored in full without having to reinstall all applications or settings.

Replication – A full replica is taken of every virtual server using Veeam Technology every night. This enables us to power on an exact replica on different hardware within minutes.

File Level Backup – A backup agent is installed on every VM to backup guest files from the OS level.

Add you own Apps

Think of Hosted Desktop as a standard Windows machine in terms of what you can and can’t install. Typically, if an application works in a Windows environment, it willwork on our Hosted Desktop. We currently host over 2,000 bespoke applications across the board, including popular apps such as Sage and QuickBooks.

Fast Set Up with minimal downtime

Before starting the setup, we will agree a migration plan and a go-live date. It is always our aim to ensure there is no downtime. Since our first migration in 2009, we have never experienced a client being unable to work as a result of a Hosted Desktop deployment. In the lead-up to the go-live date, we will ensure that we have installed and migrated everything that you need, meaning that when we reach the point of switchover, you can log straight in to the Hosted Desktop and seamlessly carry on with business.
