Hosted desktop

Redcentric provides an end-to-end service for hosted desktop delivery, for fast, flexible hosted desktop and email.

Hosted desktops (or hosted virtual desktops) remove the need for "traditional" desktop PCs in the office environment, helping you to save time and money and free up valuable resources. And if you are considering a Microsoft Office or PC/laptop refresh, hosted desktop will move the cost from a capital outlay to a revenue expense with the cost spread over several years.

Leading industry analysts Gartner predict that hosted desktops will be equal to more than 40% of the worldwide professional PC market by 2013.
