cDesktop is OGL’s own ‘Desktop-as-a-Service’ or ‘VDI solution’ which enables you to deliver all your users’ desktops from dedicated central virtual servers which are hosted in our tier IV-aligned UK data centres. It offers 99.9% uptime and enterprise level redundancy.

cDesktop provides a centralised approach, not only removing the hassle of patch management, user administration and application updates, but also guaranteeing the security of your company data whilst enabling a more flexible method for staff to access their files and applications from any internet-connected device.

To deliver the best user performance, a Citrix receiver application is downloaded to your client desktop, laptop, tablet, iPhone/smartphone which is configured to enable access to your desktop over an internet connection. However users can also access cDesktop from any internet-connected device.
