Brief Overview of the Cloudsourced.IT Solution

Ambition Cloud Desktops

Hosted desktops provide a computer desktop with fully licensed software, access to your files and folders, but that desktop is not chained to one device.  It can be accessed from a PC, Mac or even a tablet, for example an iPad.  All that is required is an Internet connection and an Internet browser like Internet Explorer.

With a focus on stability, scalability and minimal downtime, the desktops are all based on one or more desktop templates customised to the needs of the business.  This allows an almost unlimited number of new users to be added quickly if required.

Support can take place more quickly because the fall back option is to simply roll out a brand new desktop with everything working — rather than searching for hours for a changed setting.

Hosted desktops can allow staff to work from home without having business files or software on their home computer.

Onsite Equipment Management

All remaining (approved) onsite equipment is monitored and maintained.

Even though most of the IT infrastructure will be hosted in the Cloud, equipment remains onsite. This could include:

  • Routers, firewalls, switches and other Internet or network related equipment
  • Printers, scanners and faxes
  • Thin clients, desktops or laptops
  • Equipment best located onsite eg. tills or onsite access equipment etc.

Connectivity (Broadband)

Given how critical the Internet is for the ongoing work of the office, it is comforting to know that Cloudsourced.IT is registered as an Internet Services Provider (ISP). It is usual to put in place a main connectivity service with a backup service in place.

Uniquely in the UK market, as an ISP it is possible to prioritise hosted traffic resulting in a superior experience.

Web based software will produce congestion resulting in a slower experience for all users. It is for this reason that a hosted solution will offer a superior Cloud experience for most UK businesses.

Hosted VoIP

Hosted "Voice over IP" (VoIP) offers businesses the opportunity to benefit from enterprise grade telephony solutions across a wide variety of locations.

Remote workers can make, receive and internally transfer calls as they were in their normal office with high quality call audio.

Cloudspace Network

The Cloudspace solution allows the Cloud network and the local infrastructure to operate as if they are part of the same network.

For example: Ambition Cloud Desktop users will be able to print to an office printer even if the user is working from home.
