Why Join the Applications2U Cloud: Mobility

Why Join the Applications2U Cloud: Mobility

Among the many benefits of joining the A2U Cloud, workforce mobility is the most exciting!

In an era of 24-hour access to phones and email, companies must be able to work from anywhere in order to keep up with the demands of clients which often extend beyond 9 to 5 Monday through Friday.  The A2U Virtual Desktop solution makes it easy for employees to securely access their data from work with the same desktop experience on any computer, tablet or smart phone from any location.

In addition to the other perks of cloud computing, which include data security, system reliability, and cost, storing all of your information in the A2U Cloud means that it can be accessed anywhere from any device. All of our systems are co-located at Expedient, an industry leading colocation facility located in Pittsburgh, PA.  Expedient offers some of the most reliable data center services in the industry. Their experienced staff of certified engineers is available at all hours of the day or night to provide the data center services. All of their data centers are SSAE-16 audited, which means that all of their processes meet standards set forth by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). In addition, all of Expedient’s data centers use high security measures to ensure that your data remains safe and confidential while on our watch. This security location and monitoring is all included within the A2U Cloud.

Here’s how it works: our business’s desktops, files and applications are stored in the A2U Cloud, rather than on a physical computer in your company’s office.  This means that the files, applications and overall computing experience are no longer tethered to any physical computer, but rather, they exist in your own secure cloud.  With your own unique login, you can easily and securely access the same files, applications and even desktop interfaces from any device, not just your office computer.

The centralized storage of files and applications allows you and your team of employees to be more productive, because they can access any of the files or applications they might need to conduct business from any device anywhere—in the office, on-site with a client, in a conference, from home, or even from vacation.  The user experience works seamlessly on all devices, making sure your team can not only work from anywhere, but that they can work on whatever device makes them the most comfortable, whether it’s an iPad, a personal desktop, or on the computer at a client’s office.

Even though these files and applications are available on any device, this does not have to come at the expense of securing sensitive information. For example, if an employee’s device is lost or stolen while on a business trip, none of that data is lost or compromised, because it all resides in the A2U Cloud, and not on the device.  This means you and your team can travel and work from the field with complete confidence in the safety of all of the data.

A2U has a number of different solutions for making the virtual desktop options affordable for companies with different computing needs.  Check out our blog on the difference between Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Virtual Desktop Products to learn more about these nuances.

The A2U Cloud hinges on 4 major tenants: reliability, security, mobility, and cost savings.  Be sure to check out the Applications2U blog features on the rest of these reasons to join the A2U Cloud.
