What clients say …

Mike Miller

JE Miller Accountancy

I really do not know where we would have been in 2020 without your support and our hosted desktop that has enabled us to work from home.

Bryn Towns

Director at RoqSolid

We were initially cautious and uncertain of the security of working like this – this is something we have swiftly put behind us; the system is completely secure and reliable. I would highly recommend Cloud2Me for anyone considering an ‘office in the cloud’.

Dominic McLoughney

The customer service from day one has been excellent and this was a major factor in making what is a big change to our IT structure. The hosted desktops provide flexibility for working patterns but also to add scale to our business.

FAQs

How would you best describe, what a Hosted Desktop looks like to operate?
A Hosted Desktop has been designed to look and feel like you’re running on an ordinary PC with Microsoft Windows 10. Once connected to your Hosted Desktop, it will “feel” very natural and you’ll soon forgot, that the desktop session is running within the Cloud.
Does printing and scanning work in the same way?
The short answer to this is yes (the long answer is yeeeeees!). Whether you have printers that are USB, wireless or network connected, we get them working every bit the same way for which you and your staff, are used to.
Can other customers within your hosting environment, spread a virus or ransomware into our Hosted Desktop system?
Whilst we do host lots of customers within our platform, every single customer is isolated via their own virtual LAN (VLAN) and network segment. Think of these as watertight bulkheads.
Can we utilise our own Microsoft Office 365 licenses with the Hosted Desktop service?

Yes you can indeed.  The only caveat is that they need to be the correct Office 365 license or “Microsoft 365” license, i.e. an “Enterprise” grade license.  Such as “Office 365 E3” or “Microsoft 365 Standard”.  (We can of course, help you with checking your Office 365 license).
