Cloud Desktop


Meet Cloud Desktop

Cloud Desktop is our managed Desktop as a Service solution for business. Businesses can move their desktop environments to the cloud space and access powerful computing resources anywhere, at any time.


Cloud Desktop provides businesses with anywhere access to their business data and applications. When you are set up with a fully managed virtual desktop environment, users can access their data on the go, using the device of their choice and their authorized credentials. This mobility is increasingly expected of businesses today, and it leads to improved productivity and satisfied employees. It also enables the implementation of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), a growing trend for businesses in all industries. 69% of IT decision makers in the US feel BYOD is a positive move for their organization.


Scalability is extremely valuable for businesses of all sizes. Cloud Desktop offers unlimited scalability to businesses, so as you experience growth, your CloudDesktop solution can grow with you. This means adding users and deploying new virtual desktops is quick and easy. It also means you never overspend on resources you don’t need, as the cloud can adjust to your unique business cycles, offering exactly what you need, when you need it.

Cost Efficiency

A major benefit of the Cloud Desktop solution is cost efficiency. When a business offloads management, maintenance, licensing, compute and upgrade responsibilities to RapidScale, it instead experiences immediate access to the necessary computing resources through the cloud for a simple monthly cost. This is the pay-as-you-go model, which provides organizations with predictable monthly costs that help them avoid over or underspending on computing resources.


When businesses use Cloud Desktop, they experience government-grade security for their data and applications. The desktop resources are powered by the latest technology within Tier 3, Class 1 data centers. These data centers provide both physical and network security for a business’ data, as well as around-the-clock monitoring and support.

All Applications

Our Cloud Desktop service comes with the ability to either migrate or integrate any applications a business requires in its virtual desktop environment in the cloud. We can custom package your applications, creating a unique cloud environment for you and your organization.

Market Growth

Virtual desktop use is growing because businesses are realizing the benefits. 36.5% indicate that their organization has already implemented some level of virtual desktop use, while 32.5% of those not currently using virtual desktops plan to do so within one to three years.
