Delete Hardware Costs with Hosted Virtual Desktops (VDI)

Blog Post

Businesses can significantly lower their IT hardware costs by switching to a Hosted Virtual Desktop from Petronella CompleteCloud.

With a Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted Virtual Desktop, businesses don’t have to purchase any on-site servers or storage devices. And because Hosted Virtual Desktops are accessible from anywhere and the Petronella CompleteCloud servers handle all of the processing and storage of our Hosted Virtual Desktops, businesses don’t have to purchase a fully-equipped, $1,000 PC workstation for each employee—instead, they can institute a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy and let employees use their personal laptops or tablets at work; or procure low-cost thin clients or refurbished desktops.

Of course, businesses are still paying for servers and storage devices indirectly when they sign up for Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops, but the costs of a Hosted Virtual Desktop are still much lower than on-site IT infrastructures because of the former’s higher efficiency and economy of scale.

The other ways that Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted VDIs decrease hardware costs include:
• CompleteCloud Speed Technology.
With Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops, businesses can maintain a high-performance IT infrastructure without having to purchase any expensive end-user devices. Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops—built with CompleteCloud Speed Technology—perform better than locally-installed operating systems and application, even if they’re accessed from old or low-cost devices.
• Included data backups.
We perform automated daily backups of all our Hosted Virtual Desktops. Our clients don’t have to purchase any additional storage hardware.
• Unlimited flexibility.

Businesses will never have to purchase their own hardware in order to add solutions, capabilities, or storage to one of our Hosted Virtual Desktops. Any IT solution (applications, email clients, VoIP/Hosted PBX, etc.) can be integrated with a Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted Virtual Desktop. Petronella CompleteCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops can also be scaled up to support an unlimited amount of hosted desktops, users, or storage space.

With an on-site IT infrastructure, businesses have to purchase and maintain all of their own IT hardware. The upfront costs of an on-site IT infrastructure are substantial: $1,000+ for each server, $500+ for each storage device, $1,000+ for advanced networking hardware, and $1,000+ for each PC workstation. All of these devices have to be replaced every 3-5 years. In contrast, with a Petronella CompleteCloud Solution a business’s only cost is the low monthly payments, and it doesn’t have to pay anything extra when we replace the hardware with the latest technology every two years.

Meanwhile, the hosted virtual desktops of other hosting providers lack the CompleteCloud Speed Technology, data backups, flexibility, and scalability of Petronella CompleteCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktops. This forces their clients to purchase thousands of dollars in additional hardware (high-end PCs, network-attached storage devices, servers, etc.) to raise the performance, functionality, or storage capacity of their Hosted VDI to acceptable levels.
