What is Virtual Desktop?

The demand for virtual desktop services increases as remote working gains more importance during especially pandemic. So, what is virtual desktop technology?

Simply, virtual desktop is the image of the desktop computer but hosted in the cloud. In other words, it is a computer that you connect with your own computer.

The software installed into virtual desktops hosted in cloud is prohibited to get out or make changes over the main computer since it is located in different place. Can we say what happens in virtual desktop stays in virtual desktop? Yes, we can.

Why would I need a virtual desktop? The best answer for this question will be given by readers from R&D, technical and software departments. Thanks to the virtual desktop, new operating systems can be tested, infected data can be quarantined and reached, operating system data can be backed-up, or applications and software can be examined without being put into the basic operating system.

In short, thanks to the virtual desktop, you can do whatever you want to do in the host computer on the cloud more comfortable and more flexible.

By the way, if you still have not seen our video about creating a virtual desktop within minutes, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K9XIdNqgzQ&t=1s (Do not forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel!)

Why Should You Prefer Innclo?

We said that you can connect to the virtual desktop through your computer. So, where does Innclo step in?

Innclo serves as a bridge of connection to your virtual desktop. Yes, your host computer actually served as a bridge; but, you will want to replace your computer with Innclo when we will underline the reasons right after this section. The computer producers may not love our solution, but we wish you to achieve more efficient work force with affordable budgets; that is the reason we created Innclo!

Why should you prefer Innclo when you have your computer already?

We would like to go over some points about this:

💰Economic Factors

Current exchange rate of Dollar / Euro is bothering you, isn’t it? It can be very overwhelming to see the increasing prices of needed devices, systems, and other requirements; especially when it is the time for IT investments!

According to a research done by Statista in 2019, average sale price of a computer was 733$ (+5.500,000 ₺); 5 times more expensive than Innclo’s cost! This is the minimum amount of money you will spend when you start investing in your employee for him to fulfil a single job. https://www.statista.com/statistics/722992/worldwide-personal-computers-average-selling-price/

For example, Mehmet started working in the finance department. Just like most of the accountants, Mehmet will deal with lots of Excel files and data entries. As a company, why would you want to invest such big amount of money in an employee who deals with data entries merely?

⚖Physical Factors

According to a research done by Computing Spot, average weight for a laptop is about 2.3 kilos. There are also very thin and light computers, mostly known as ‘lightweight’; its price increases in direct proportion to its lightness. https://computingspot.com/how-much-does-a-laptop-weigh/#:~:text=The%20average%20laptop%20weighs%20about,as%20low%20as%201%20kg.

We would like to state that Innclo weighs about 350 grams! What is the advantage of this? When you have to work from home, even the pocket of your pants will be enough to carry this device around. You will guarantee increasing your efficiency with Innclo as it enables you to work from anywhere you want.

Moreover, the most important thing is security! You would not want the data in your physical devices or your device itself to be captured. As we said before, Innclo serves as a bridge when it comes to your data. So, it does not contain data within itself. The security precautions you are taking with the licenses you already have will be enough for Innclo. You will not have to worry about anything if something happens to your Innclo device!

♻Environmental Factors

In the news prepared by NTV, according to Global Carbon Budget’s 2019 report, Turkey emitted 430-million-tons carbon in 2018. Carbon emission per capita was determined as 5.2 tons. https://www.ntv.com.tr/ekonomi/turkiye-karbonda-15inci-kuresel-isinma,xJ9rfQqxlkyoa8nCbvl0qA

Microsoft decided that all the supply chains will have been Carbon-free by 2030! As a company that is both a partner of Microsoft and has the aim of creating a sustainable world, we placed great emphasis on environmentalist design of Innclo. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/corporate-responsibility/sustainability/operations
According to a research done by Northwestern University, an average hardware spends about 155W. A monitor and an Innclo device spends about 40W; which corresponds to 70% energy consumption saving! https://www.it.northwestern.edu/hardware/eco/stats.html

Hence, this blog shows us that, with an Innclo device you can:

✅Save about 50% cost
✅Save about 70% energy and
✅Work more efficiently.

Has it only 3 advantages? What are the other advantages of Innclo?

See you soon in Chapter 2!
