There is nothing more frustrating than sitting down to give a presentation to a perspective client and realizing that you have left your product presentation file on your desktop at the office with no way to access it. Now what do you do?
Fortunately, you can avoid this problem with an on-demand cloud desktop solution- nDesktop developed by Nivio. This solution allows users to access their applications, data and desktop, a familiar Windows environment (in the cloud) ubiquitously from any device including mobile device, Mac or PC, android tablet or iPad, notebook or netbook. With nDesktop, subscribers only need to pay for what they need at that time and they don’t need to buy and install software.
When approached and being asked about the relevance of a Windows desktop when so many pure hosted applications – such as Google apps or Office 365 are available in the market, Sachin Dev Duggal, CEO & Co-Founder of nivio said, “Services like Office365 are great for hosted Exchange and Sharepoint but do not provide the full functionality of the Office suite of products. The other benefit of nivio is the security and management is taken care of for the user whether they be consumer or small business. Firewalling, physical security as well as AV is all taken care off as well as the OS maintenance. Users can even continue using out of date hardware and still access the latest version of Windows with nothing more than a compatible browser.”
“Users still require access to full functioning Windows desktop applications such as Office, Visio, Project, Acrobat etc. Even though there are free services available online, they often fall short in some area or another. Companies like MS and Adobe are not going to go out of business anytime soon because of the free alternatives in the marketplace”, he added.
The primary advantage of nivio is that not only does your data follow you around, but so does your desktop and your apps. Subscribers can access nivio through a range of optimized, downloadable client applications or directly using HTML 5 browsers, including the Google Chromebook. All paid applications are provided with a 30 day free trial and they can be accessed from all your devices including your smartphone. You can access beta version of nDesktop for up to 10 hours at $5 per month with an additionally discounted price for students at $2. Nivio also has a strategic partnership with Rackspace, Wyse, and Quest. With the support of these partners, nivio’s cloud infrastructure is powerful and secure, and ensures each nivio desktop will always be available and efficient when you need it.
The availability of cloud desktop solutions is a remarkable concept and it shows where this technology is going to ultimately be and how fast the pace is. Not everyone needs a way to access their files remotely, but when the occasion comes it is nice to know that it can be done through nivio’s nDesktop solution. In my case, I have used it get my photos I forgot to bring with me when visiting friends. What are you going to do with it?
