Setting up a VPN connection from another PC still requires some knowledge of VPN by the employee. This is not the case with the cloud desktop. A weightier argument to elect for a cloud desktop over a VPN connection is located in the costs and management sphere. What should you do if some applications are located on a separate server (outside the network)? Or what if the costs of management, housing and/or maintenance soar. And what should you do when new patches need to be installed, but there really is no time and/or manpower available? In such cases, the switch to a cloud desktop is the best choice. All management, maintenance, updates, backups, etc. are taken care of. All applications can be accessed, whether they are on the network or not. You can leave behind all of the responsibilities for maintenance and updates, and just pay a fixed price per user, per month.
