How It Works
The technology behind virtualization is not new.
But with recent advancements in the field, virtualization is now more affordable and accessible than ever before.
Your Data & Applications Are Moved to The Cloud
You rely on a number of programs to run your business. For example, you may host Quickbooks onsite for bookkeeping. Or if you're a law firm, your staff may use real estate closing software installed on your server to prepare closing documents.
Instead of self-hosting these programs on your in-house server, your applications are installed offsite on CloudKoala servers. Your software programs, data and shared drives are migrated to the cloud, and you no longer need your onsite server.
Your information is now stored on high performance servers in a fully protected, redundant, and physically secure Tier II data center environment.
Almost any applications and data can be hosted and supported in the cloud.

You Access The Cloud With Virtual Machines
To access your software programs and data that are now in the server farm, you'll use the internet to log in to your virtual machine (also known as virtual desktop, desktop-as-a-service or VDI).
To log in, the user simply double-clicks an icon on their local computer, enters their login credentials, and is connected to their dedicated, host-based, Windows 10 virtual machine. Each user has their own virtual machine, and access permissions are assigned by user.
The virtual machine looks and feels just like working on your local Windows computer, but all processing is performed by the virtual machine in the cloud. Your data, mapped drives and applications remain securely in the cloud, removing dependency on the local machine. Whether in or out of the office, the virtual machine delivers fast performance and a consistent experience.
The desktop icon used to access the user's virtual machine includes a security certificate which must be configured by CloudKoala, ensuring only approved access is granted. The shortcut can be installed on work devices, personal devices, and shared devices, enabling 24/7 access with a consistent and user-friendly experience from any computer.
