From today, the Cloud Desktop service will no longer be available to order
In 2015, we launched two solutions to support brand-new requirements in the cloud industry: Cloud Desktop and Cloud Desktop Infrastructure.
Customers could use Cloud Desktop to get one or more virtual desktops as a unit. And Cloud Desktop Infrastructure could be used to manage a fleet of virtual desktops, by ordering a Hosted Private Cloud infrastructure along with the popular software solution: VMware Horizon.
Virtual desktops are very versatile. They offer many benefits to businesses, including increased mobility, standardised working environments, reduced hardware costs, and much more.
However, in spite of the reliability and high performance reported by customers, it was still not used by a large sector of customers. This meant that we could not consider developing new features, or updating the hardware.
For this reason, we have decided to discontinue the sale and use of Cloud Desktop. From 31st August 2019 onwards, all of the virtual desktops that form this service will progressively become unavailable. The data stored on these desktops will be permanently deleted as part of this process.
Customers using Cloud Desktop will be contacted directly by our teams. We will detail all of the terms and conditions for this service closure, as well as the measures we recommend taking in order to avoid any data loss. We would like to thank all of our customers using Cloud Desktop for their custom over its four years of existence.
