Delight Your Customers With Brilliant End User Compute


Your internal business users are the companies most important asset and can be your most demanding customers.  Your user need to be able to log on quickly and reliably, their corporate desktop environment must meet there productivity needs whilst being efficient to administrate and secure.

Using Microsoft's cloud first approach we host End User Compute within the Azure cloud, using Windows Remote Desktop Solutions (server 2016 and 2019) and Windows 10 either as a remote desktop solution or cloud connected devices.

Its quite likely you're currently needing a hybrid cloud solution so relax in the knowledge that our solutions work just as well on-premise as they do in the cloud, we can also stretch the desktop environment across your hybrid cloud so you enjoy the best of both worlds.

You might be experiencing some of the challenges below:

  • You're moving your workloads between on-premise and the cloud and are unsure how to maintain application delivery without impacting your users experiences.
  • Your applications don't support Windows 10, Server 2016 or Server 2019.
  • You're unsure which desktop delivery is appropriate for you (Server 2016, 2019 or Windows 10 VDI/Azure Desktop as a Service, or laptop).

Relax, we've got you covered:

Solution at a glance

Microsoft has released the newest version of Remote Desktop Services (RDS), RDS 2019, on October 2, 2018. RDS 2019 builds on the strong foundation of RDS 2016, letting you rapidly deploy on-premises or in the cloud. RDS 2019 is generally available with Windows Server 2019.

RDS 2019 will give customers the opportunity to leverage fantastic enhancements that make it the optimal version of RDS, to date, with several areas of innovation to improve the administrative and client experiences.

However many environments are unable to move to RDS Server 2019, so we also highly recommend RDS Server 2016 as the the platform of choice for building virtualization solutions for every end customer need, including delivering individual virtualized applications, providing secure mobile and remote desktop access, and providing end users the ability to run their applications and desktops from the cloud.

Windows 10 Enterprise, the best Microsoft client operating system yet with your experience improved through the use of our rigorously operationally tested tested configurations.  Produce a new build within minutes from our pre-tested and operationally utilised MDT stored images.

Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) for Windows 10 delivers Win32 applications to users as virtual applications. Virtual applications are installed on centrally managed servers and delivered to users as a service in real time and on an as-needed basis. Users launch virtual applications from familiar access points and interact with them as if they were installed locally.
