What is working in the cloud?

But what exactly happens when you work in the cloud? Working in the cloud may sound a bit puzzling, but the name is no accident. The cloud is a counterpart to the on premises infrastructure and is a digital environment where files can be stored and retrieved online. The place (the cloud, that is) where the files are stored is invisible, hence: the cloud. Facilitating the cloud is one of our ICT services.

The two main features of working in the cloud are that you can access all your stored files anytime, anywhere, and that everything within the cloud takes place online. Countless folders with all kinds of different data are thus a thing of the past.

More than just Office 365 accessible online

But isn't an Office 365 package enough? It's true that with an Office 365 package, you're accessible online, but limited. This runs your Office package including Word, Excel and Outlook in the cloud. With an online workplace, you have access to all the files and data you store and retrieve in the cloud. This service is more comprehensive. Something for you?

What is all included?

So, as promised, working in the cloud at Virtual Computing is very comprehensive. But what all do you get for a monthly fee of €29? These elements, among others, are included in our package:

  • Unlimited storage
  • Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook)
  • MFA authentication
  • Back up and antivirus
  • Unlimited support
  • Installation of own software
  • Fast Virtual Desktop

What customers say about us

Business use, for sole traders and SMEs

Working in the cloud offers a myriad of possibilities for business use. This applies not only to the huge multinationals but also precisely to SMEs or a sole proprietor. The corona pandemic has taught us that we no longer need to stick to the office. You can also connect with colleagues and do your work from home. With working in the cloud, you decide whether you work at home, on the road or in the office today. This way you are always accessible and, wherever you are, you can access all your data with just a few clicks. You can also easily manage your accounting in the cloud.


Individuals and private use

The fact that working in a private cloud is extremely convenient for business use does not preclude it from being incredibly convenient for individuals as well. Don't limit yourself to one workspace. We like to take files to different locations for all kinds of private use. Working in the cloud gives you this capability, even for private/private use.

Why move to the cloud?

You now know what working in the cloud means, what online workspaces are, and how to fulfill private and business needs with this service. But why should you really switch to working in the cloud? To make that clear once and for all, we've compiled a list of countless benefits for you. But we're also honest, working in the cloud sometimes comes with drawbacks.

How long will the migration take?

A complete migration takes about one to two weeks. During this time, we transfer all company data, data and software to our cloud service. Most of the work is in setting up the data and testing the programs. We want to make sure that everything is migrated properly before you start using it again and risk losing data.

In short, the more data your organization takes to the cloud, the longer the migration will take. After a successful migration, the cloud can be used by anyone authorized within your organization within a half day.

Your digital workplace is always available. Wherever and whenever you want, on one condition: an internet connection that allows you to work in the cloud unlimitedly. Even better, with our 24/7 support service you can always reach us for problems or questions.

Can I also use the online workplace from a tablet or smartphone?

There are no restrictions on the number of devices you can deploy when you have access to an online workspace. With the Remote Desktop App, you can log in on any device and work in the cloud. In addition, there is no maximum on the number of users per online workspace.
