Brisbane tech company launches cloud-based desktop service

- January 16, 2014 2 MIN READ

Brisbane-based tech company, divestIT, yesterday announced the launch of their new secure cloud-based desktop service. cloudDesktop allows small to medium size businesses to log in to their company desktop from any device or computer using any internet provider. This solution was previously the domain of large scale enterprises.

divestIT’s cloudDesktop allows businesses to operate from anywhere without the hassle and expense of a typical setup for such mobility.

Managing Director of divestIT, Nigel Heyn, says in the media release, “This means as long as people can access a device or computer with an internet connection they can access their company data and applications safely without the hassle and expense of managing hardware, software and ongoing maintenance.”

“Our client’s cloudDesktop is hosted with us, in our secure Australian Data Centre (the cloud), with our team of expert technicians looking after everything around the clock.”

Heyn also says that the divestIT cloudDesktop gives clients the same experience as being at their office desktop PC, regardless of the application in use.

“All of your applications such as Microsoft Office, Exchange, MYOB, CRM or whatever you use will be there along with all your company files, documents and internet browsing so you will have the same functionality you are used to from wherever you want to be located,” he says.

“This means people can concentrate on doing business seamlessly between home, office, client meetings, coffee shops, airports and even internationally without any hassles.”

The cloudDesktop is priced on a per desktop basis, making it more cost-effective than other options in the market.

“Our solution takes care of all the important functionality which removes the business owners from the hassle of having to maintain servers with secure remote access, anti-virus management and the need to have a backup system in place for data redundancy and security,” says Heyn.

“You also don’t have to learn how to use different and new systems or struggle to find any of your files – they are all exactly where you left them on a system that you are familiar with.”

Each cloudDesktop automatically includes 10GB of storage per user, plus the latest Microsoft Office Suite and Microsoft Exchange email and calendar sharing features.

All client data is hosted within Australia, and service includes data insurance protection, as well as the latest Anti-Virus Protection. There are also no lock-in contracts. The cloudDesktop costs $49.95 per user, per month.
