Why buy another PC? That is the question all business owners should be asking themselves.

Kurt Johnson, CEO of Horizon Technology and Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2005, announced Monday the official launch of Horizon Private Cloud.

“We are very pleased to announce a bold step forward in cloud computing for the small to medium business market,” said Johnson. “In 2009, Horizon Technology embraced information technology as a competitive advantage and implemented a total desktop virtualization strategy which dramatically changed the way we conduct business. I attribute much of Horizon Technology’s success to this virtual desktop strategy, so much so, we decided to add our name to it – Horizon Private Cloud.”

Horizon Private Cloud centrally deploys and manages desktops from their cloud console, claiming what used to take hours now takes minutes while improving the quality of services and employee satisfaction by:

  •     Providing a predictable monthly subscription model without costly hardware or software purchases
  •     Ensuring simple, turnkey solutions for all employees anywhere in the world
  •     Replacing specialized software with a web browser connection through a secure SSL authentication
  •     Offering low profile, worry free, low support solutions via thin client

“Why buy another PC?” asks GM and Chief Technology Officer Robert Christiansen. “That is the question all business owners should be asking themselves. The economics of hosted virtual desktops are significant, yet the true impact is business agility.”

Horizon Private Cloud’s mission is to put an end to the misconception that business agility depends on a company’s internal IT resources by offering an alternative - “Real Solutions for Real IT Problems.”

Horizon Private Cloud (HPC) is an on-demand technology solutions provider for enterprises of all sizes. A division of Horizon Technology, HPC delivers consistent desktop experiences across multiple endpoint devices anywhere an internet connection is available. “Real Solutions for Real IT Problems” For more information visit
