4 Benefits of Virtualizing Your Desktop

b2ap3_thumbnail_hosted_desktop_solutions_400.jpgDesktop virtualization isn't necessarily a new subject, but it is something that has been growing in popularity over the past few years, and it's easy to understand why. Instead of keeping your desktop in physical form 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
But besides the useful longevity that desktop virtualization offers, it is also beneficial for a small business. Traditionally, you have to install new machines with new applications and new software every single 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 streamline the use of your technology. Lighthouse Technology Solutions can assist you with virtualizing your desktop with our remote IT services.

Increased Mobility
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 cost your business a pretty penny. Furthermore, if you allow your employees to do this themselves you are putting your company's information at risk. Virtualizing your company's desktops minimizes the chance that something dangerous happens to your data, and allows your employees to access the desktop using their own hardware provided they have a secure connection.

Super Easy Maintenance
A virtualized desktop makes maintenance infinitely easier. Rather than dealing with systems that are slowed down significantly by downloaded software, the virtual desktop resets upon logging out of the system. This erases any additional software that was installed to it. 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, Lighthouse Technology Solutions can access the desktop remotely, isolate the problem, and fix it. Our remote IT services can save your company time and money by taking care of issues.

Better Controls Make for Better Security
The most basic 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 put on their desktop. If something still makes it through your permissions, however, Lighthouse Technology Solutions can monitor your system and fix the problem remotely.

All of these benefits point toward the most important aspect of desktop virtualization – it will reduce your company's costs. With Lighthouse Technology Solutions's IT services, you won't need to hire an IT department to fix your problems.
