This small guidebook will help you getting an idea of the many features that are available to MyQuickCloud Enhanced Remote Access users.
Businesses are changing their working habits and Enhanced Remote Access is the response for individuals who need to access their applications and files whilst travelling or simply want to reduce on stressful commutes by working from home.
MyQuickCloud transforms your current desktop applications into a web application, making them accessible from anywhere at anytime, giving you your own virtual office.
Let’s review a few concepts
Host: This is the computer that you’re connecting to remotely and where the applications and the files are located. It’s called the host because it’s the computer that’s hosting the programs and files you need to access.
Client computer: The computer you’re sitting in front of that accesses your desktop. It’s called the client because it runs MyQuickCloud client rather than the program installed on your host computer.
MyQuickCloud User: A user who can work remotely using MyQuickCloud.
MyQuickCloud Administrator: A user who can manage other users (update details, reset passwords…), permissions (assigns programs for other users…), other admin related tasks (billing…) as well as connect remotely.
Dashboard: Applications that are made available for the users to have access to. Only a MyQuickCloud administrator can publish and modify a users’ dashboard.
Publishing an application: Making a program from the host computer available to the MyQuickCloud users.
What is Enhanced Remote Access?
MyQuickCloud Enhanced Remote Access allows users to access their computer from any other computer in the world with a simple internet connection. With MyQuickCloud, users have the flexibility to work where, when and how they want. They will have the ability to use the host computer’s programs and applications, read and send email, edit files and access network resources as if they’re sitting right in front of it. In other words it’s like having a full and complete access to everything on your computer, and there is no compromise on speed or functionality for web or non web-applications.
MyQuickCloud also allows users to launch applications installed on the host computer from anywhere as if they were installed locally.
Many businesses are already taking MyQuickCloud as a Remote Access solution as it has an abundance of features to enhance the remote experience:
- Provides an enhanced user experience – it feels like you are in front of your own computer.
- Maps drives and files automatically
- Keep Windows permissions and rights
- Gives you access to all local hardware during the remote session, such as printers and USB devices.
- Privacy – other users can’t see what you’re doing
- Seamless integration (copy paste, printing and looks/feels like you’re in front of the host PC)
- Flexibility to open a private desktop or just an application
