MyCloudIT Transforms IT Providers Into Cloud-based Pros

For small or mid-size businesses (SMBs) that want to provide their end users with the advantages a virtual desktop infrastructure offers, desktop as a service (DaaS) is a good alternative. When deploying these services in-house, often times it can be cost-prohibitive, which is why MyCloudIT exists.

Backed by Windows Azure, what MyCloudIT does is act as a “Quickbooks for IT pros.” Because it’s cloud-based, it also means that your clients do not need to be within driving distance. This model allows providers to have a geographically dispersed client base.

One of the key benefits of virtual desktops, compared to traditional workstations, is that DaaS can dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO). With a virtual desktop, you can access your complete personal PC desktop experience from anywhere, using any device, as well as your existing desktops, laptops and thin clients.

Moreover, ‘Desktop as a Service’ (DaaS) provides companies with a ready-made disaster recovery (DR) strategy to get their desktops up and running quickly after any disaster. Offering this kind of service puts IT providers ahead of the game. With cloud being the “it” technology right now, it behooves providers to get on board and with MyCloudIT, it doesn’t require an arm and a leg to get up and running.

With cloud computing, businesses eliminate the worry and hassle of managing hardware and software. The shared infrastructure means it works like a utility, meaning businesses will only pay for what is needed.

For many, embracing cloud services is the natural progression. A trustworthy DaaS provider combined with the ease and cost-effective methods of cloud computing will allow network service providers to gain the speed and flexibility they need to improve their own operations and meet market demands for their partners.
