Enjoy the same superfast computing speed in and out of the office with the Q Desktop.
Even as remote work has become increasingly popular, a handful of industries are still stuck in the office. Architecture, engineering, and construction companies need high computing speeds to run their extensive applications, which a typical remote environment can’t handle. However, there is one remote solution that doesn’t sacrifice speed: a high-performance Q Desktop.
When you access a traditional desktop environment, what you see is a direct product of the hardware you use. In a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment, the hardware running your operating system sits in several powerful, high end servers in colocation data centers, and your endpoint device displays a cloud-based virtual recreation of your desktop. Your experience with a virtual desktop is identical to a physical desktop, but there’s one significant difference: your location doesn’t impact performance.
Because you access your virtual desktop using a connection broker over the internet, you can be thousands of miles away from your office and notice no difference in processing speeds. Additionally, your device doesn’t have to do any work to run your applications, which means you could use a desktop PC or an iPhone and have the same computing experience. The computer-aided design (CAD) software that never loads on your laptop can work perfectly on the same device with a VDI.
Though high-performance VDI environments are especially helpful for businesses that develop complex designs with computers, virtual desktops are an excellent choice for any business. With the Q Desktop, you can trade your slow on-premises hardware for a virtual solution and make working from home easier in the process.
Additionally, you can hire team members from any location across the country, and they will have access to the same terabytes of data that your in-office employees use every day. As long as your team members have an internet connection, they can access your specialized software and programs, no matter where they are, without noticing a dip in performance.
For businesses that use computers to create highly detailed graphic images, a central processing unit (CPU) is typically insufficient. These companies need the additional processing speed and image rendering capabilities that a graphics processing unit (GPU) provides. Traditional desktops can use a GPU to boost performance, but that extra power doesn’t extend outside of the office. Virtual desktops offer VDI GPU acceleration that makes cutting-edge graphic rendering applications available anywhere.
With desktop as a service (DaaS) solutions from Virtual-Q, you can add GPU acceleration to your VDI environment, enabling your engineers, architects, and designers to work from home without compromising performance.

Your deadline for a finalized CAD is tomorrow, and your employee submitted your final design to the client just a few minutes before the office closed. The client sends an email an hour later asking for a minor edit, but all of your employees are already home. Without a remote desktop, you would have to send someone back into the office to complete five minutes of work. Instead, your employee opens up their laptop, runs your CAD software through their virtual desktop, and makes the change from home.
Using a Q Desktop virtual machine isn’t just convenient after hours. It also allows your designers to pack up their cubicles and switch to a remote work model. You can build a team of top architects from around the country and give them a remote desktop login, giving them the ability to use whatever device they have, from an Apple iMac to a mini PC, to create high-quality 3D designs.
Q Desktops are a persistent VDI, which means your employees can log out of their desktop and keep their CAD software open without losing any work. When users log back in, they see the same screen they were using at the end of their last session, even if they changed devices.
In today’s work environment, people want flexibility. If your high-performance desktop computers only work inside your office, you can’t give your potential employees the remote work capabilities and flexible scheduling they’re looking for. Don’t let performance issues restrict your business—go remote with the Q Desktop.
As a Virtual-Q DaaS customer, you get the convenience of a high-speed virtual desktop as well as daily support from our team of IT experts. We can move your on-premise infrastructure to a cloud-based environment, manage every aspect of your network, and offer immediate helpdesk support when something goes wrong. We also charge you a flat fee per month, which means you can use powerful applications as often as you want without racking up extra charges.
One of the biggest advantages of Q technology is that it’s completely scalable. If you rapidly expand your team or move into a new market thousands of miles away, we can easily adjust your infrastructure to handle your changing needs. Plus, your data is always highly secure and backed up in our cloud data center, so you never have to worry about losing work.
