CloudDesktop On the Go

Providing on-demand access to virtualised environments, CloudDesktop On the Go uses a USB key to instantly transform work or legacy PCs into VXL Linux-powered thin clients – for on-premises use or as secure homeworking endpoints.

CloudDesktop On the Go – making it easy to stay connected to the office when working from home or remotely.

CloudDesktop On the Go allows businesses to facilitate flexible, cost-efficient home or remote working. Users simply plug the USB key into a PC and boot from it. VXL Software’s Gio Linux firmware is instantly useable, without overwriting or affecting the local OS – and the PC becomes a secure virtualised thin-client. Also ideal for mobile or remote working, CloudDesktop On the Go provides fast and secure access to company apps and data, is compatible with all leading virtualisation protocols and includes a perpetual licence for lifetime ownership.

Support for Windows 7 End-of-Life

By repurposing their legacy Microsoft Windows 7 PCs into virtualised VXL Linux OS endpoints courtesy of CloudDesktop On the Go, organisations would then be able to access Windows 10 IoT via their Data Centres or Cloud. This solution not only saves time and money, but also offers organisations improved security and management and delivers a great user experience courtesy of its fast boot and simple to use operating system.
