IIn this article you will read about,
- how the Swiss company oneclick provides virtual desktop systems at the click of a mouse,
- how customers benefit from "everything as a service,"
- and why oneclick relies on OpenStack-based resources from the Open Telekom Cloud for its offering.
One click – everything there. The Swiss company oneclick delivers exactly what its name promises: the provider's customers access a fully functional IT environment via their browser within minutes, accessing software, platform, and infrastructure as a service as needed via a web portal. At the click of a mouse, they can access a modern digital workspace with all the necessary data and applications at any time and on any device.
This is practical for the users and at the same time an enormous relief for the IT departments. They no longer have to manually set up applications and access on laptops or smartphones. Time-consuming installations of various programs and solutions on local servers are no longer necessary. In addition, the IT staff no longer have to set up, manage, and update VPN connections.
This is because the entire solution for the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) is provided by oneclick via a central platform from the cloud. For this, the young company relies on the IT resources of the Open Telekom Cloud and encrypted access via an innovative streaming procedure for its customers in Europe. This means that all applications for the VDI systems are run exclusively in the protected cloud environment. Neither applications nor sensitive data ever leave their secure hosting location in the Open Telekom Cloud. At the same time, users always receive the exact current image of their virtual desktop via the browser – transmitted as a stream. "This method for delivering centrally-hosted business applications to end devices is very efficient and effectively prevents the intrusion of malware," says Dominik Birgelen, CEO of oneclick. "This is an enormous advantage over classic remote-access solutions via standard protocols. These offer significantly more points of attack for malware."
