Yes. Since all of the processing power comes from the Colo Solutions Cloud Servers, the performance of your computer is not as important. If your computer turns on and connects to the Internet, then usually you should be good to go. When it comes time to upgrade your computer you will have the option to replace it with an inexpensive one since our Cloud Servers handle all the work.
Absolutely! With Colo Solutions, your Cloud Server is located in a state-of-the-art SOC 1 (SSAE16) TYPE 2 compliant Data Center. The levels of security, systems, and protections that are in place in the Data Center surpass what many average businesses can afford to implement. With Colo Solutions, you’ll benefit from N+1 redundancy of all major critical systems like power, cooling, and multiple Internet connections, notwithstanding the multiple physical security measures that are in place for your added protection. We perform daily backups and verification. Beyond the physical security of your Cloud Server, you are in complete control of who is able to access your data, when, and how. You can also restrict your users' access to their accounts by device, time, and enforced security policies.
Most applications you use will run on our Cloud Servers. Applications you want installed will be tested to ensure compatibility with the Colo Solutions cloud environment. There are two ways to install software. One, a designated Administrator will be identified from your organization that has Administrative rights to install applications/software to your Dedicated Virtual Cloud Server. Two, a Colo Solutions passionate technical support expert will download or obtain the media provided by you and install the application/software onto your Dedicated Virtual Cloud Server for you.
The Colo Solutions Cloud Service offers complete integration and communication from your local system to your Virtual Hosted Desktop and vice versa. Transferring file(s) is as easy as cutting and pasting or dragging and dropping. When you connect to the Colo Solutions Virtual Hosted Desktop the system will automatically create a virtual connection to your local printer(s). Your printer will appear as a printer in your Virtual Hosted Desktop just as it does when you’re not connected to the Cloud. When you are working in your Virtual Hosted Desktop, you simply print from your applications the way you normally do.
All your applications and data are backed up daily with at least two additional recovery points throughout a 24 hour period. Backup retention time is 7 calendar days unless otherwise specified. Additional backup retention time may be purchased in 7 calendar day increments. If you should lose Internet connectivity then access to your Cloud service will not be possible as you do need an Internet connection. When your connection is restored you’ll be reconnected back to exactly where you left off. Nothing lost!
