Any business can tell you that there are a lot of choices for working remotely, as the pandemic forced many of them to learn the sheer volume of options available. However, some options are better than others when it comes to setting up your remote workforce for success. And few choices stand out for guaranteed success like virtual desktops.

When it comes to working remotely, virtual desktops give the most advantages while avoiding the shortcomings of other similar solutions. Take remote access through a VPN to control an office computer as an example. Both solutions have you remotely accessing a desktop, but the VPN depends on the office computer you're trying to use to be powered on. Meanwhile, a virtual desktop solution has you accessing a virtual version of that desktop from the Cloud. Meaning you don't need to rely on any physical technology to keep working while you may be away. Letting your business do things like downsize your office space to reduce costs or even just turn off hardware to save on electricity.

A virtual desktop solution is the future of remote working, and We should know. ATS has been doing virtual desktops and has seen what it can do for clients. We've seen firsthand how it benefits remote working and the company. So don't settle for any remote access solution like a VPN, instead, get a virtual desktop solution with ATS' private data center technology.
