Cloud Workspaces

Workspaces in the Cloud

Austlink Cloud Workstations is a fully managed desktop computing service in the cloud. This facility allows us to easily provision cloud-based desktops that allow your employees to access the documents, applications and resources they need with the device of their choice, including Desktops/laptops, iPad, Kindle Fire, or Android tablets.

With a few clicks we can provision a high-quality desktop experience for any number of users at a cost that is highly competitive with traditional desktops and half the cost of most virtual desktop infrastructure solutions. You simply select from a choice of Austlink Cloud Workstation bundles that offer a range of different amounts of CPU, memory, storage, and choice of applications.

Unlink a remote desktop server, each user gets their own virtual machine which means that (with permission) they can install their own software and reboot their own machine without having an effect on any other user.

No user data is stored on the local device. This helps improve the security of user data and reduces your overall risk surface area.
