Desktop on Demand Support Services


Instant streaming access to a managed cloud desktop from any device.  It's like Netflix, but for computing ... a virtual desktop on demand.

Cloud computing and virtual desktops

Our global crisis made remote and hybrid working a necessity in 2021 and 2022.  With little preparation, businesses had to make quick adaptations and pivot the way we work and operate.

We’ve changed systems, adapted processes, and now we don’t want to go back!  Which is great, as long they’re sustainable, cost-effective and efficient – and can boost your business’ longevity.  That’s where cloud computing and virtual desktops come in.

Modern Desktop on Demand

With our Modern Desktop services, we provide a secure fully managed Windows 10 desktop in the cloud, so that your team has access from any device – anytime and anywhere.  We scope, design and build the desktop to your specification, allowing your team to easily access any (and all!) applications they need for work.

So, what makes Modern Desktop great?

Perfect for remote teams

You can connect remote workers to a secure, central desktop from any device.  So you never have to worry about updating and patching a teams-worth of laptops again.

Defence-grade security

As an accredited Ministry of Defence security specialist, your systems, data and reputation are safe with us.

Win back time

You'll have full access to the desktop, but we'll manage it for you, so you can spend your time where it matters most.

Stream a more powerful PC, from your PC

We’ll give your team access to more powerful hardware than they have at home – without the cost of provisioning.

Custom workloads

Different teams have different computing needs. We’ll build a custom desktop for every type of user in your business so you can all perform at your best.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where will my desktop be hosted?

Azure, Microsoft's industry-leading cloud platform.

Does a virtual desktop run any different to a normal one?

No. Your virtual desktop will work exactly like any other desktop you’ve used previously.

How is the service priced?

We like to keep costs simple! There's a flat monthly charge per user, plus any Microsoft Azure fees for the storage and computing power you use over each billing period.

How do we connect to a virtual desktop?

Your whole team can connect in one of two ways - using the Remote Desktop app (available for Windows, Android, macOS, iOS and Linux) or through browsers such as Edge, IE, Safari, Firefox or Chrome.

We have no cloud experience - does that mean we can't use a virtual desktop?

Not at all. We'll do all the work for you, from set up to maintenance. All you need to do is choose your package and we'll take care of the rest.
