Reduce IT Costs, and Cut Hardware and Support Costs
Operational cost is one of the biggest challenges in running a business. One of the biggest advantages of cloud computing is to help you in this area. Myrtec cloud service will save you from purchasing new and expensive systems and equipment and running and owning your own servers and desktop computers. The virtual desktop will connect all your business computers to one cloud-based server for a fixed ‘per user’ or ‘per month’ expense.
Based on your current situation, you can scale up or scale down your operation and storage quickly to fit your business’ needs. Rather than purchasing system upgrades yourself, Myrtec will do the dirty job for you. This frees up your time, allowing you to focus on running your business.
Improve Business Accessibility and Productivity
Getting your resources when you need them, where you need them, can give you the competitive edge. Because your business data are stored in cloud, you can access and get a hold of important information whenever and wherever you want, whether you’re at home or on a holiday. Also, your employees can stay productive anytime, anywhere, as they can access business data and applications using any device. Whether it’s a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone, everyone will have access to their virtual desktop through the hosted desktop service.
It’s a virtual office that you can conveniently and quickly access wherever, and whenever you want.
Security and Data Recovery
Compared to traditional computers, virtual desktops are protected with significantly higher levels of security. Stored data are monitored and secured with firewalls, antimalware, anti-spam and antivirus software with automatic updates. Users can also opt to improve security measures by putting security encryptions. Access to business data and applications is restricted to ‘per user basis’ and can be optimized to meet your business’ operational needs.
Also, all business information comes with regular backups with comprehensive disaster recovery plans.
Cloud computing technology has indeed changed the way we do business today in a lot of ways, and it looks like it’s where our future is heading.
