IronOrbit Hosted Desktops perform better and are more cost-efficient, flexible, secure, manageable, accessible, reliable, and convenient than a traditional onsite IT infrastructure. It’s always been the case that businesses of any size, in any industry, and with any budget would benefit from switching to our Virtual Hosted Desktops; however, due to recent innovations and trends in both IT and the global economy as a whole, it’s actually more beneficial than it’s ever been to sign up for IronOrbit Hosted Desktops.
Reasons for signing up for IronOrbit Hosted Desktop include:
- The mobility trend. An increasing number of businesses either provide their employees with company-issued mobile devices or allow workers to bring their personal mobile devices to the office. IronOrbit Hosted Desktops, which can be accessed from anywhere with any Internet-connected computer, tablet, or smartphone, provide mobile employees with access to fully-functional desktop versions of the their applications.
- Globalization 2.0. Yesterday’s globalization—which mainly took the form of the outsourcing of low-skilled jobs in the West to non-Western countries—is very different from the globalization of today—which involves the nascent middle classes of countries like China, India, and Brazil demanding better jobs to reflect their improved skills and education and importing and purchasing products instead of manufacturing and exporting them. IronOrbit Hosted Desktops enable businesses to hire employees or establish offices in these countries without also having to make any on-the-ground investments in IT hardware or IT personnel.
- Wilder weather. Between 1970 and 2004, reports of natural disasters increased by over 400 percent, and of this 400 percent, only one-third of it is attributable to advancements in storm tracking and reporting, according to Ker Than of LiveScience. Meanwhile, onsite IT infrastructures, because of the sensitivity and brittleness of IT hardware, are unlikely to survive any kind of severe natural disaster, whether it be a hurricane, flood, tornado, earthquake, blizzard, or wildfire. IronOrbit’s three datacenters, however, have raised flooring and climate-control and fire suppression systems; are located in areas (Southern California and inland Virginia) where the possibility of a severe natural disaster occurring is low; and are geographically-separated to prevent our clients from suffering outages or losing data as a result of a single storm.
- Permanent temps. According to Christopher S. Rugaber of the Associated Press, the number of temporary workers in the United States has increased by 50 percent since 2009. Temporary workers (including freelancers, contractors, and consultants) now account for almost 17 million, or about 12 percent, of all employed workers in the United States. According to Elizabeth G. Olson of Fortune Magazine, some economists think the rise in temporary workers is cyclical and connected with the Great Recession, while others theorize that it’s a result of an enduring shift in the economy away from permanent employment. With IronOrbit Hosted Desktops, businesses can provide their temporary workers with fully-functional desktops without having to purchase or maintain any physical PCs. Businesses also avoid having to make any long-term investments in IT hardware or personnel when they sign up for our Virtual Hosted Desktops. Furthermore, the setup and deployment process of our Hosted Desktops is quick and easy.
Businesses can put themselves in a position to take advantage of these trends and conditions by contacting IronOrbit at [email protected] or (888) 753-5060 and signing up for our Hosted Desktops or Hosted Applications today!
