Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) revolution has taken businesses to the next level. If you have not tapped into BYOD, consider hosted virtual desktop as a jumping off point.

If you’re used to the traditional workplace environment, a hosted desktop might be foreign to you.

A hosted desktop refers to a Windows operating system, which is accessible via the Internet. It’s the clone of a Windows operating system with the same capabilities as the operating system on a PC.

This means that a hosted desktop lets you install and launch Microsoft Office applications, web browsers, and even email programs such as Microsoft Outlook.

Citrix Servers

Citrix XenApp

Hosting applications on a shared server is much more efficient than the old-fashioned method of deploying applications. Installing applications individually on each employee’s computer used to be the only way but now, a multi-user hosted application only has to be installed once, and it’s easier to manage, secure, and back up due to its centralization. But simply installing an application on a server won’t magically turn it into a hosted application; this is where Citrix XenApp comes into play, transforming applications into hosted applications.

Citrix XenDesktop

Applications are not the only aspect of computing that becomes more efficient and secure by being hosted on a shared server. Your desktop operating system can be centrally hosted and accessed as well. Like with applications, it’s easier to manage, secure, and back up operating systems that are consolidated onto a single server. What’s more, they can be accessed from devices without a desktop-level OS, including thin clients (low-cost, modem-sized, hard drive-less computers), tablets, and smartphones.

Stay in Control and Forget the Hassles

There are a few downsides to managing your hosted applications or hosted desktops yourself. The costs and hassles of managing your own IT infrastructure can overshadow the advantages. It takes large amounts of time to monitor and maintain the infrastructure; furthermore, repairs and replacements of the hardware and software can be expensive.

Fortunately, there’s a way to outsource the management of your IT infrastructure but still maintain control over your hosted applications and/or hosted desktops—by signing up for the Citrix Servers of IronOrbit.
