Why FileCloud is Ideal for Accessing and Sharing Files in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

It is clear that virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is part of the next frontier of business solutions. The ability for workers to access files from anywhere and on any device can go a long way to boost productivity and reduce costs. While cloud storage platforms and server networks may provide something similar, VDI offers more features.

Now, the big question is, how do you leverage VDI to optimize your business without compromising on security, accessibility, control, and cost? The answer is FileCloud. The fact is that no other VDI platform offers as much versatility as FileCloud. We give you full control over our software to manage your data. The result is unprecedented adaptability and next-level solutions.

Why Choose FileCloud?

Flexibility: At FileCloud, we understand that one size does not fit all. For example, the VDI setup that a huge finance firm may require is bound to be very different from what will suit a small law firm.  While the former may opt for hosting on-premises to create an in-house cloud sharing platform, the latter may choose to allow FileCloud host their data or run FileCloud on third-party cloud platforms like Amazon WorkStation to cut cost. This is why we allow you to select the right VDI model that will suit your business. From choosing whether to self-host to picking the pricing structure that best suits you, everything is in your hands.

Accessibility and Security: Most enterprise solutions make users choose between accessibility or security. At FileCloud, we understand that both accessibility and security are highly important and one cannot be sacrificed for the other. Therefore, FileCloud is compatible with virtually all end-point devices whether you are running Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS or Android. FileCloud support Word, PDF, Excel, PowerPoint, and more so you can preview files before downloading them regardless of the format. When working on FileCloud, your documents are automatically synced across different platforms. You even have offline access to your data.

We provide full encryption of files – both during transit and while in storage as well as antivirus and ransomware protection. In recent years, some of the top enterprise cloud data storage platforms have been compromised by hackers. However, the high level of security on our VDI platform ensures that you will never be a victim of data breach.

When using FileCloud, there is no hassle when uploading large files. We give you tools to prevent data loss like backing up and restoring files, remotely wiping out data or restricting access and also restoring files that may have been deleted accidentally. What’s more, updating apps can be done directly from the data center rather than individually on each device. This is not only more simple, but also less cumbersome for your IT staff.

Seamless Collaboration: Collaboration is the lifeblood of every business, and we understand this at FileCloud. Therefore, we provide a range of tools to support seamless collaboration. For example, you can lock files to prevent changes and also track file activity to keep track of changes. You can also automate processes using a simple ‘If this then that (IFTTT)’ model. There are no limitations to the potential for collaboration when using FileCloud.

If you want to host your desktop remotely without going through the trouble of setting up a remote desktop service (RDS) or if you want to make your remote desktop available to multiple users at the same time, VDI is your best option. With FileCloud, you can customize the desktop applications that each user has access to. Everyone does not have access to the same desktop. This means you can limit the apps available based on each person’s role in your organization.

FileCloud VDI does not only limit IT admin overhead cost but can also boost productivity. Imagine there is a severe snowstorm and most of your workers can’t make it to the office. Nonetheless, you have a deadline that can’t be extended. With FileCloud, productivity is guaranteed because bad weather or emergency trips will not prevent your workers from performing their duties. Your workers have to pick up any device, access your work desktop, and pick up where they left off.

FileCloud also gives a new definition to the bring your own device (BYOD) policy. With VDI, you can reduce cost by allowing users to bring their own devices to work without compromising on security or having them go through the process of installing new software.

Full Control: FileCloud gives you complete control over your data. You can choose to integrate the VDI platform with your existing servers. You also get to choose which users have admin privileges as well as the ability to manage connected devices, access analytics information and full audit logs of the files in your network. This means you never have to worry about employees getting access to restricted data. You can also keep track of the activities of your employees by checking usage trends to ensure that everyone is performing their role in the organization.

Customization: The customization options that FileCloud offers are unmatched. We offer multi-language support. What’s more, you can customize everything about the FileCloud platform including the domain name, login pages, messages, and more. This means you can enjoy the best VDI service in the world and at the same time boost your brand visibility.  That’s not all the customization options that we offer. If you are on a slow network, you can adjust the sync rate to match your bandwidth.

Conclusion

If an organization is akin to the body of a living being, then FileCloud is like the brain. With our VDI, you can coordinate the functions in different aspects of your organization, ensuring that each worker has the tools needed to do his/her job.

FileCloud is easily the number one VDI platform in the world. We do not only give you better prices, but also a lot of features that you will not find on any other VDI platform.

The future of your organization rests on the VDI platform that you choose. If your migration to VDI is fraught with challenges, it can make you rue the decision. This is why you must work with a trusted VDI platform. Choose FileCloud for the best VDI experience.
