The SMB virtual desktop bundle addresses a market segment that is largely underserved.
CloudOffice addresses leading business desktop requirements for businesses of 10 to 50 users
RapidScale, a leader in managed cloud services, has launched the latest version of its unique virtual desktop bundle solution for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), CloudOffice. This is a bundled service offering being delivered via a state-of-the-art virtual desktop platform that includes a Windows 10 desktop experience, company file share, Microsoft Office 2016 Standard and other common productivity applications for end users. The solution enables SMBs of 10 to 50 users to package their line-of-business applications and securely stream them to the virtual desktop environment on any device.
“CloudOffice addresses a market segment that most other hosted desktop solutions simply cannot scale down to: the under-50-user businesses. The SMB market has been starving for a managed cloud desktop solution, and until now, that service simply did not exist,” says Duane Barnes, SVP, Cloud Engineering. “RapidScale is uniquely positioned to offer an affordable self-service virtual desktop for SMBs that allows the customer to simply check boxes in a portal for applications they want streamed to specific users in their organization. No IT knowledge is necessary to use or administer the CloudOffice service.”
CloudOffice brings together core business applications and includes:
- 50GB of user storage
- Microsoft Office 2016
- 24x7x365 support
- Adobe Acrobat Reader
- Anti-virus and malware protection
- File-level backups
- BYOD capabilities
- Rich media content
- Access to local USB devices
- Bring Your Own Apps (BYOA)
The SMB solution is offered in three compute packages and has optional add-ins such as:
- Citrix ShareFile
- RapidScale’s Hosted Exchange solution, CloudMail
- Skype for Business
CEO Randy Jeter says, “There will finally be an all-in-one bundled service delivering a great client experience at an affordable cost to the 10 to 50 user market. Our company’s success is truly based on our ability to deliver innovative solutions built on our state-of-the-art global platform with the end-user experience in mind.”
