Software for Graphic and Web Designers on a Hosted Desktop

Any artist or graphic designer would be using or would need to be using some of the top software like Photoshop, Corel Draw, Illustrator, Serif Draw/Photo Plus, Corel Paintshop, Xara, Cyberlink PhotoDirector, Photo Studio and others, from a desktop or a laptop. In other words, the creative professional needs to be either physically present at the work desktop, or carry the laptop around to the place of work, and often, the client’s office to access and use the tools of the trade.

Now you can install all your creative designing software, with your favorite add-ons and plug-ins, on a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. This will enable you to access them from a variety of devices like other PCs, laptops, iPads, iPhones, Android Tablets, Smartphones, thin clients, dumb terminals, and even just a browser – all you need is internet connectivity to the VDI for anytime, anywhere access in the truest sense.

Our VDI environments are capable of supporting most high-end design and graphics applications and you can use them in the exact same way as you would on a regular desktop/laptop.

We understand that confidentiality and backups at various stages of design developments are sensitive points for the creative professionals. In terms of confidentiality, every connection between the users and our VDI are automatically encrypted with SSLs. Besides, our infrastructure where the VDIs are hosted, are SSAE16 Type II certified datacenters, the standard recognized and used by banks and financial institutions.

As for backups, all creative work done by you on our VDIs will be fully backed up on daily incremental and weekly full basis and even a single file version can be restored from the backups on request.
Here is a quick look at some of the key benefits of having your creative and designing software online:

Access from anywhere, any time

Access your designing software and creatives from anywhere in the world and any time of the day. Your legal and billing programs work on our VDIs exactly as they do on your PC. The biggest difference is in the fact that they become accessible from anywhere in the world, using just a browser.

Access from any device, any platform

Your graphics/design applications on our VDIs can be accessed from multiple devices (desktops, laptops, iPhones, iPads, Android and Windows Tablets, Smartphones, thin clients, dumb terminals) running on different platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook).

24 X 7 support via phone/chat and e-mail

All our VDIs are fully-managed and come with 24 x 7 x 365 support via phone/chat and e-mail to help you with any issues.

We take weekly full and daily incremental backups and can restore even a single file from the backups on request.

Move your full desktop to us to save your money, time, and effort

With our VDI, you can save a lot on licensing costs, as you will not need multiple licenses for multiple computers or devices. You pay per user and not per machine; you can easily add and delete users incrementally as per your need. You also save on time as there is no need to install the application for every new user.

Once installed in the VDI environment, the access rights can be given by you to any new user from any compatible device. Apart from your regular graphics/design software, you can also move your full desktop, with all its applications and files, to our VDI environment and enjoy the true freedom of anywhere, anytime access.
