Atlanta, GA – October 22, 2014 – Milner, Inc., one of the country’s largest independent business technology dealers, announced today the expansion of its cloud offerings with a comprehensive suite of highly secure cloud solutions that meet common business challenges, including business continuity, disaster recovery, backup and virtual desktops.
Virtual desktops, also known as Desktops as a Service (DaaS), meet the needs of companies that want to reduce capital expenditures on hardware and empower remote employees with desktop access, regardless of their device. DaaS provides a complete virtual workspace from the cloud, delivering Windows desktops and applications as a unified cloud service.
“Desktops as a Service help businesses gain a competitive edge and maximize their efficiency in today’s challenging business environment,” said Milner’s Executive Vice President, Charlie Gibson. “The ability for employees to access their desktops on any device, from anywhere, offers a true competitive advantage with benefits including cost savings, simplified management and increased security.”
With Milner’s DaaS solution, powered by industry-leading VMware Horizon™ DaaS® technology, it’s easy to provision temporary, off-site and contract workforces with a virtual desktop. In case of a disaster, DaaS can play an important role in business continuity. Employees do not have to be physically present at the office to be able to access their desktops and conduct business.
Milner also offers Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) and DR-as-a-Service (DRaaS), leveraging an enterprise-class and PCI compliant cloud infrastructure built on industry-leading Cisco Systems cloud architecture. These services allow businesses to replicate or backup their data to the cloud using a secure, encrypted connection, and provide near instant recovery for data loss or entire site outages at a significantly lower cost than traditional services.
The company also provides Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) using a highly secure, compliant cloud platform. Milner’s strategic business professionals and skilled engineers can design solutions to meet specific business needs.
