Our mCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops (HVDs) will reduce your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) considerably compared to a traditional desktop computer. According to Gartner, Inc., the cost of purchasing a desktop PC, on average, is $1,200 and the total cost of ownership (TCO) can be as much as $175-482 per user, per month.
A large portion of the TCO includes costs and time associated with Operations & Support on items such as Security Patch Management, Antivirus, Backups, Storage, Operating System & Software Updates and Performance Tuning - items that are offered as fully managed services, free, with any mCloud HVD Subscription.
If you need 10 new computers, each with a TCO of $175 per user per month and an average one-time cost of $125.00 to install and configure, the total cost of those 10 new desktop is $34,250.00 in just the first year!
There are no Setup & Configuration fees for mCloud HVDs! You enjoy a flat rate monthly subscription fee. There are also no Operations & Support cost because they are included with your monthly subscription – they are offered as fully managed services.
Our standard mCloud HVD with 2 vCPU, 3 GB RAM and 100 GB of Protected Storage is $35 per user per month which translates to a 1 year total cost of $4,200.00. The savings are substantial - over three years a traditional desktop deployment will cost approximately $76,250.00 compared to $25,200.00 for mCloud.
