GoCloud’s Hosted Desktops are chosen across the UK for many reasons. They increase productivity through high responsiveness and the enabling of remote working. They’re tailored to a company’s exact requirements, so you only pay for what you need, with the option to tweak the service when required. They come with top-notch security features and backup facilities, providing peace of mind that everything is safe and sound at all times. But did you know that our Hosted Desktops are also good for the planet?

Rather than each member of staff requiring hardware that stores and accesses every file, folder and application, Hosted Desktops live up to their name and host everything in GoCloud’s highly secure UK data centre. This has many advantages, such as fast and reliable access due to no clunky systems, or busy periods keeping people from getting their work done. It also means that, with very little required from the hardware, each member of staff can use a thin client.

A thin client is a lightweight computer purpose-built for remote access to a server, making it ideal for Hosted Desktops. It relies on the server to function, which is why you need a 100% dependable supplier, such as GoCloud. With the thin client doing so little work to access the data, its energy consumption can be up to 97% lower than when using a traditional piece of hardware. Requiring an average of 8-20 watts compared to a 150-watt PC, it really does make a significant difference from the moment you plug it in.

If all of a company’s machines are replaced with thin clients, the entire business will suddenly use a tiny fraction of its current energy. This is great for the electricity bill, and it also means that the corresponding carbon footprint will be drastically reduced. Decreased power usage creates less pollution, helping to keep the planet clean and healthy.

At the risk of ruining the warm fuzzy feeling that this generates, we also have to point out that this positive environmental impact is excellent for PR. With companies going to great lengths to make their operations greener, Hosted Desktops are one of the very top methods of achieving it in a big way.

Meanwhile, the company is receiving a range of other benefits, from a more fluidic workflow thanks to the enabling of remote working, to advanced security features and disaster recovery that keep everything safe and accessible. This combination makes GoCloud’s bespoke Hosted Desktops an incredible investment for businesses of all shapes and sizes, from small start-ups to national brands with sites across the UK.

With so many companies truly recognising the importance of greener workspaces, now’s the time to capitalise on their need whilst supplying a package that perfectly fits their unique arrangement. It’s reliable, it's affordable, it’s effective, and little by little it’s making the world a better place.
