Virtual desktops and hosted apps reside in the cloud and IT can easily manage these using existing skills and tools. STC will provide the management of the underlying infrastructure, along with best-in-class SLA’s, service and support.
Does STC put any restrictions on how many users can use a single cloud-hosted desktop?
There are no restrictions on the number of different users who can use a desktop, but only one can be connected at a time.
