Cloud solutions offer many benefits to small business. You no longer need to rely on a single desktop or laptop that holds all your valuable business information – you can store it on a virtual desktop on a cloud server – and access it from anywhere.
Based on Microsoft Windows technology, your cloud server can play the role of a simple file server, right through to a fully functional terminal server serving all your critical business applications and data, all through your own privately secured cloud.
A virtual desktop can be accessed from any workstation in an office, or from a home PC or laptop – perfect for hot-desking and remote working. Once logged in, the user can access their virtual desktop applications and files hosted on server infrastructure in a datacentre.
Mercury IT’s cloud servers offer increased data security, with fully-automated backup solutions, including copies in geographically separate locations, to help you easily meet your business’s Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity goals; a complete solution when bundled with other backup and hosting services we have on offer.
Accessing your cloud server is as simple as clicking on a shortcut from any computer – or even from most portable devices such as a tablet or smart phone. All your need is an internet connection anywhere in the world; existing secure connectivity can be enhanced with extra security rules such as 2 Factor Authentication.
