Workspot Delivers Cloud PC with 99.99% SLA Availability

Workspot, a cloud PC company, has launched the Workspot Global Desktop that creates a way for enterprises to deliver end-user computing with “the ultimate availability.”

Through a multi-cloud (private and public) and multi-region approach, the company provides enterprises with a cloud PC that addresses their need for zero-downtime by delivering virtual desktops using the company’s “never-fail” technology that can span disparate private and hyperscale clouds.

The Global Desktop feature gives end users an always-on cloud PC even when changing work locations.

Workspot Chairman of the Board Mark Templeton said, “I’m both excited and proud of the Workspot team as they lead the cloud PC industry in vision and innovation. Global desktop functionality is a foundational technology that creates a global grid of cloud PCs across public and private clouds. It’s the holy grail for providing a desktop experience that’s always available in spite of cloud outages, workforce travel and evolving ‘work on demand’ scenarios.

“With one multi-tenant, SaaS-based control fabric that supports private and public clouds, customers can seamlessly ‘plug and compute’ on-demand from any device or browser,” Templeton continued. “In the Cloud PC era, endpoints of all types become toaster-like appliances, delivering a high-performance enterprise desktop experience powered worldwide by Workspot’s Cloud PC Utility Grid.”

With remote work models and globally distributed workforces, having access to assets, data and applications is vital. In fact, for many years, industry leaders have discussed the need for a virtual desktop that can be used anywhere, anytime with the highest performance.

Workspot answers this need by provisioning cloud PCs across multiple clouds and cloud regions and managing them all through a single administration console. With Workspot Global Desktop, organizations can address the following top use cases:

  • Maintain critical business operations – Workspot provides alternate cloud PC pools running in multiple clouds and/or cloud regions that are provisioned for end users when a disruption – such as a regional outage or a lack of cloud capacity – occurs. The alternate cloud PC is available to end users when they login to their cloud PC. The assignment of the most performant cloud PC to each end user happens in the background with no intervention by the user or by IT required.
  • Recover quickly from ransomware disruptions – As soon as an attack is detected, Workspot can replace compromised physical PCs with cloud PCs residing in an isolated, secure environment so people can get back to work. Whereas it often takes organizations 30 days or more to regain productivity after an attack, Workspot cloud PCs reduce downtime to less than an hour, curbing financial loss and minimizing overall business impact.
  • Build a zero-downtime environment for all users – For critical businesses where the cost of failure runs into millions of dollars per hour of downtime zero-downtime for every end user must be standard policy. For these organizations, the “Global Desktop” capability can mitigate financial disaster.
  • The “travel anywhere” desktop for frequent travelers – Geared for global travelers, the end user’s primary desktop, located in the nearest cloud region where they are traveling, is assigned to them. This delivers the lowest latency, so people can experience outstanding performance anywhere in the world.
