Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Horizon Private Cloud, the leading national provider of Windows cloud desktop and application solutions, today announced the launch of the first Windows Cloud Desktop Service specifically designed for the self employed.
Under special Service Provider licensing agreements with Microsoft and Citrix, Horizon Private Cloud is now able to deliver single user cloud desktops with fully functional Windows applications and storage from any secure internet connection.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of our self employed cloud desktop service,” says Robert Christiansen, General Manager of Horizon Private Cloud. “Today, self employed business people rely heavily on their computers to keep them competitive in this economy. The list of computer services they require is amazing. They need mobility and access to Microsoft Office, data files, shared calendars, email, Quickbooks, Act, data back up and virus protection services, and a host of important Windows programs.”
Self employed business people need these services to work all the time, on any device, anywhere. More over, they want these services in a single solution from a single vendor.
Horizon Private Cloud customers enjoy enterprise-class IT services that are highly mobile, redundant, protected, scalable, and affordable. Self employed cloud desktops include full Microsoft Office 2010, Exchange Mailbox 2010, 10 GB of storage, and a large suite of applications specifically tailored for the self employed. All cloud desktop data are protected by Horizon Private Cloud’s security suite including daily backups, virus scans, and fault tolerant SAS 70 data centers.
The way IT is consumed by businesses is changing to a utility model. Self employed business people don’t want to buy software, hardware, or IT services they only need for a short period of time. They simply want the service (their apps and data) delivered to them seamlessly while only paying for what they use.
“We see a perfect fit for the self employed,” says Christiansen ”Our self employed cloud desktop can easily share calendars, sync emails and contacts using Microsoft Exchange 2010. Whether you have one or 10 users in your company, it’s like a local area network in the cloud. Each cloud desktop accesses the file server, just like a physical office, with full security, back up, virus, and threat protection included in a low monthly user price.”
Horizon Private Cloud is keeping the self employed business person from getting lost in a cloud of generic competing services Through relationships with Microsoft and Citrix, Horizon Private Cloud has deployed a state-of-the-art cloud desktop service that delivers comprehensive, scalable IT services for companies who can not risk cobbling together a cloud solution that does not address all their issues.
“Finally, self employed business people can rest assured that their apps and data are secure and accessible from any internet connection,” says Christiansen. “More than Office 365 or Google Docs, Horizon Private Cloud is a total Windows cloud desktop for today’s business person.”
Horizon Private Cloud (HPC) offers cloud desktop solutions that allow businesses to rapidly scale to changing business demands without purchasing additional hardware or software. By delivering a unified cloud solution, companies enjoy access to all their apps and data, are available anywhere, on any device.
