Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below a selection of frequently asked questions for our customers, relating to our Hosted Desktop service.  If you have a question and you can’t find the answer below, just;

Drop us a line
What type of internet do we require within our office?

a

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t require any special internet to receive a great experience when using our Managed Hosting service. Internet speeds are measured in Mbps (for example 20Mbps down and 5Mbps up).  Each user on hosting only requires 0.1Mbps in speed.  So if you have 20Mbps down and 5Mbps up, you could operate 50 staff members on that internet!

Do we still require anti-virus on our local laptops and workstations?

a

Provided there is no data on that PC, then the answer is no. However we recommend leaving enabled the free anti-virus client included within Windows, “Windows Defender”.

What is an ideal workstation or laptop once we’re in Managed Hosting?

a

One of the great benefits of moving to a Managed Cloud service is that all of the computing is carried out in the data centre (Cloud). The PCs that your staff operate are merely portals to the Cloud.  Therefore “mini-PCs” also known as “thin-clients” are perfect for this task.  A good example of a mini-PC can be located here on Amazon Prime.  They are cheaper, smaller, easier to set up, have a longer lifespan and cost less to run than traditional “full fat” PCs.

What does it look like? How is it best described?

a

When staff connect to their Hosted Desktop, it looks…. Just like a modern Windows desktop (i.e. Windows 10).  It looks and behaves every bit like they are operating on their “local” PC, when in fact they’re operating on a “Hosted” Desktop.

We presently use Office 365 for the provision of our email service and Microsoft Office. Can we continue to use this within your Hosted Desktop service?

a

Yes, you can. However you must ensure your Office 365 licence is on the “E3” plan. Furthermore we can offer the same Exchange email and Microsoft Office functionality at a cheaper price and with more features.

Does printing and scanning work in the same way?

a

Yes it does. If you have an office location, we establish a VPN connection to connect your hosted services to your office to ease printing and scanning.  If you are working outside of the office printing/scanning works too, however you just need to ensure that printers/scanners are installed on the PC that you’re connecting from, then they map through to the Hosted Desktop.

Should we expect a delay within hosting when typing?

a

Absolutely not! When operating over an internet circuit that is working properly, there will be no delay when typing or operating the mouse.

How do staff connect and log in to their hosting session?

a

We supply you with a pre-configured connection file that staff copy onto the desktop of their PC. All the staff member then needs to do is double click the file, enter in their username and password, then they are instantly connected to their Hosted Desktop.

Presumably within your Managed Hosting there are many other customers. Could they access our data or spread a virus?

a

Presently we have over 250 customers within our Managed Hosting, however no customer can get close to accessing a neighbouring customer’s server. We implement VLAN technology which ensures that customer networks are entirely isolated from one another.

How long does it take to make a design?
