Your entire office delivered from the cloud

Desktop as a Service, or DaaS, are virtual machine desktops that offer the computing power of a physical desktop without the hassle associated with its maintenance and costs. In short, DaaS is a simple, secure and centralised version of what you get on a typical desktop/laptop that you can access via the Internet.

Our hosted desktops are cloud-based and optimised for business performance and what's more is that they can be accessed from a range of devices such as Mac, Windows, Linux, iPad, and Android.
