What is Application Virtualisation?

A Cloud Solutions Provider can place your critical business applications in The Cloud, providing enhanced security, performance and reliability so you can access your chosen application Anywhere, Anytime - just clicking on an App Icon via an internet browser.

Cost effective: The biggest benefits of virtualising your applications is that you are cutting back on cost that would have been incurred due to the restrictive nature of hardware and its maintenance. You can save substantial capital costs through reduction in spending on equipment and infrastructure. Virtualising your application on the cloud will allow you to cut down your both capital and operating costs by using the resources of your cloud service provider. Furthermore the contract with most of cloud service providers includes the costs of system upgrades, new hardware and system maintenance. You also avoid recruitment of IT staff and also save on your energy consumption for running your own data center. You only pay to the service provider just for what you use when you need it without costly upfront investments. With a pay-as-you-go,subscription-based cost structure, cloud services require a lower initial investment and typically much lower overall costs than ‘on-premise’ models.
Simplified Maintenance: Software manufacturers are constantly bringing out new patches and updates to keep their software fresh and bug-free. When you are in the Cloud your provider should ensure that software updates are installed. New versions of Windows or Office are also normally included in your monthly subscription ensuring that you are always up to date.
Enhanced Productivity: As mentioned before, when you virtualise your applications, you’re making them accessible from anywhere at any time. This means that your workforce will be able to access their applications from any supported device (Your Cloud Service provider would have provided a list of supported devices) either at home or on the go.
