What Is a Remote Workstation and Why Do I Need One?
Why are businesses turning to remote workstations for their power computing needs? Read on to discover if remote workstations are right for your business.
What is a remote workstation?
Remote Workstations are powerful computers that you can access from any device that has Internet so that you can continue the same workflow whether you're in the field, at home, or in the office.
Why are they gaining prevalence?
Business computing is moving more and more to the cloud today. This is because having a centralized digital workspace accessible at all times is immensely valuable for roles that deal with data and/or long workflows -- that is to say, most higher level roles in an organization. Salespeople, designers, writers, editors, data scientists, logistics personnel, programmers, medical professionals, etc. are all people who rely on accurate, centralized data to get their jobs done correctly.
Ease of Use
Accessing your remote work environment is as simple as opening an application and logging in. The setup and deployment process can be done in as little as 24 hours, and access is available through multiple types of devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
Cost of Deployment
Remote workstations are now highly cost-efficient to deploy. This is because the proliferation of cloud infrastructure has laid the groundwork for the technical processes behind successful remote work. The costs of accessing a remote workstation are also offset by savings in actual hardware purchases. Organizations no longer need top of the line hardware, if they can easily and remotely access that performance through much cheaper devices.
A key benefit of remote workstations is the true mobility it offers. You can literally access the power of a high-end desktop or server computer through a phone or laptop form factor. Gone are the days of having to purchase 10 lb "portable workstations" complete with docks and power cords. The remote workspace not only trumps laptop solutions in terms of mobility, but also in terms of performance.
Uptime for your remote machines is guaranteed as part of your service agreement. Our enterprise-class computers are hosted in protected environments, meaning your mission-critical work and data is safe and accessible.
Consistency and Uniformity of Work Environments
A constant struggle for IT departments and tech-reliant businesses is making sure that there is uniformity in the tools used across an organization. Having centralized remote workstations drastically increases the efficiency of this process. Part of your workstation plan is a preinstalled software environment tailored specifically to your needs.
Companies sometimes rely on mission-critical software that runs on older software or operating systems. Running these applications through a remote workstation not only allows greater uptime and reliability for these applications, but increases the security of your overall environment.
Continuity of Workflow
Breaks in workflow can be costly and time-consuming for programmers, engineers, designers, etc. Accessing your work in a customized, uniform environment from anywhere allows you to save time and helps ensure the quality of work.
Security and Redundancy
Your data and workspace are hosted on servers that are highly secure from a physical and software standpoint. Of course, your own IT team is responsible for end user security, but the physical servers are located in secured locations with multiple layers of network security and backups.
Performance and Capability
Remote workstations excel in terms of of performance per dollar. The machines you are remotely accessing pack high-end performance that would normally be prohibitively costly to own. And because of the advent of high-speed Internet and remote work technology, users experience very little latency even when using processing-intensive programs such as image editing or video editing software.
