Whether it’s localised flooding, snow, flu pandemics or even teachers’ strikes, sometimes it’s just impossible for people to get into the office and even a day lost for business can have a serious impact on the bottom line.
Many businesses with business critical processes pay 3rd parties for workplace recovery solutions including workspace, IT hardware and software that require regular maintenance so that in the event of an incident, employees can continue to work. A hosted desktop solution drastically reduces the need for this sort of ‘insurance policy’ allowing employees to work from practically anywhere with access to all their desktop applications.
ISO22301 is the international standard for business continuity management and more and more businesses are moving towards compliance to this standard. Hosted desktops move much of the management of desktop computers and servers into the cloud so that any disruption to business use of IT can be minimised if and when an incident occurs.
With a hosted desktop from GoCloud, employees can work from anywhere with an internet connection and from most devices. Approximately 90% of employees have access to the internet from home, meaning that even if their desktop or laptop is at the office they can access all of their applications from home.

Time is money…certainly for most of us! With a hosted desktop from GoCloud customers can access their information from most internet enabled devices wherever they are in the world, meaning that when any kind of incident happens disruption can be minimised with a minimum amount of business down-time.
Losing data can have a major impact on businesses, in fact some businesses never recover from a large loss of data. With a GoCloud hosted desktop solution we backup all your customers’ server data to an offsite location, and we also provide customers with the option to use our remote backup service through a self-managed backup system.
Disaster can strike at home too! Employees do expect a level of flexibility from their employers and they’re loyal to those who are flexible. Hosted desktops allow people to work from home for the odd day when they need to be there, whether that’s to wait in for a trades person to fix a burst pipe, or to keep an eye on a sick child. It also means that they’re productive than they would be by calling in sick or taking a day’s holiday!
Moving to a hosted desktop solution reduces the risk of an incident leading to a disaster for your customers. Fires, floods and power failures can mean that customer’s IT systems are completely unusable. With a hosted desktop solution from GoCloud your customers have peace of mind that they can be back up and running almost immediately should the worst happen.
GoCloud is a brand you and your customers can trust. We understand the importance of ‘always-on’ service and support, 24 x 7 so that if disaster strikes we’ll be here to get your customers up and running. Our team of experienced engineers is dedicated to ensuring that our service is reliable, monitored and above all secure.
