Introducing pCloud Workspace
Corporate IT Solutions today announced the general availability of a pCloud Workspace, a new Desktop-as-a-Service offering which combines the agility and cost efficiency of the cloud with the reliability, security and expert technical management of enterprise applications. pCloud Workspace gives IT organizations the option of public or private cloud deployment. The application is hosted and managed in Corporate IT Solutions’ state-of-the-art data centers in Boston and Marlborough, MA.

“With the rapid growth of mobile technologies and remote workforces, easy and secure access to enterprise applications and data from any device has become essential to organizational productivity,” said Jeffrey Boardman, CIO at Corporate IT Solutions. “Existing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) offerings have failed to meet many organizational needs due to their high cost and complex deployments. Additionally, most of the desktop-as-a-service offerings available today are being outsourced to third parties. This creates significant reliability, security and compliance issues.”

With pCloud Workspace, users get a complete enterprise cloud offering for a fixed fee with unlimited application access and availability from any device. The service includes comprehensive system management and automated software upgrades while eliminating up front infrastructure and deployment costs.

Locally Managed by Data Center Experts

pCloud Workspace is locally managed and secured on-site at Corporate IT Solutions’ data center in Boston. It includes Help Desk support and 24x7x365 monitoring. Customers also get the benefit of Corporate IT Solutions’ extensive expertise in desktop infrastructure, virtualization, storage, disaster recovery, application delivery, data protection and security.

Public or Private Cloud Deployments

Corporate IT Solutions offers customers the option of public or private deployment to meet the needs of any size organization.

  • pCloud Workspace Public Cloud – provides a multi-tenant hosting environment for smaller organizations with unlimited access to enterprise and desktop applications.
  • pCloud Workspace Private Cloud – provides a dedicated infrastructure environment for larger organizations. This option offers all the flexibility and access of desktop-as-a-service with the control of dedicated infrastructure and administration.

Customers can also transition seamlessly from Public to Private Cloud deployments as needed.

  • Access to any app from any device via the cloud – support for more than 1,000 applications.
