Move to Google Chromebooks Without Giving up Windows and Enterprise Applications


Published on

Businesses are intrigued by Chromebooks but are concerned about how to move forward without sacrificing their ability to be productive with Windows applications.

This webinar will discuss the various new desktop approaches including Chrome and how to move to Chromebooks without giving up Windows and your legacy business applications. Included will be a demonstration of the Desktone Cloud for Google Chromebooks.

With the Desktone Cloud—a subscription-based VDI-in-the-cloud service—businesses provide their users with access to a complete virtual Windows desktop starting at just $1/desktop/day, without having to build and manage complex onsite VDI. By accessing the Desktone Cloud via the Chromebook, they can seamlessly shift to Windows in the cloud whenever needed. As a result, businesses of all sizes can leverage Chrome and Windows and take advantage of a cloud-based strategy without having to invest and build a new VDI environment.
