What is a hosted application?

Our application hosting solution (also known as Application as a Service) has been specifically designed to allow companies to move their legacy applications off-premise and into a more accessible and secure cloud-hosted environment.

It is underpinned by Citrix DaaS technology, in the same way our hosted desktop service does.

Moving applications to our secure hosted environment also removes the age-old pain points of installing, maintaining and updating applications, tasks which historically ate up precious IT resources. With our cloud application hosting, everyone has access to the latest versions immediately following deployment. It’s a refreshing fix-once, fix for all approach.

For many companies, having to host legacy applications locally on dedicated servers has been a sticking point in moving to a preferred cloud-based solution for their IT. Using Atlas Cloud and hosting these applications in our secure environment enables companies to break away from troublesome on-premise servers. Our remote helpdesk manages it all.

Hosting applications outside of a tired on-premise solution is vital for today’s modern workplace where users expect to be able to access data from anywhere, at any time, and on any device. This is especially important if your company operates across multiple sites or has users frequently visiting customer sites. Our managed application hosting services allow easy access and on-the-go collaboration, even when using resource-hungry, graphics-based applications. Utilising the vast processing power of the cloud ensures fast performance on any device.
