Buying a new computer is like buying a new car: it becomes obsolete the moment you purchase it. Your massive amounts of RAM and high-end graphics card are only “massive” and “high-end” for a very limited amount of time. In a year or so, your computer will be out of breath as it tries to load the most recent version of Photoshop; don’t even get me started on Chrome and the massive amounts of RAM it eats.
But if you’re a cash-strapped entrepreneur, it’s not like you can afford to shell out $1,500 every couple years for a new high-end laptop. And if you’re a business owner managing the computers of multiple employees, the expense can get even higher. There’s a reason why most businesses are using computers that still run Windows XP.
Startup Globaldyne Systems wants to make it so you never need to purchase another computer again.
How will they do this?
By moving computing to the cloud.
Of course, cloud computing is nothing new. Netflix, Gmail, and Spotify all provide some form of cloud computing. SaaS software like Salesforce and Shopify bring business functions to the cloud. But Globaldyne Systems wants to put ALL your computing in the cloud. Not just email or video.
Globaldyne Systems was founded in February of 2015 by Michael McDonald. It was born when Michael considered the future of computing. His conclusion: computing is moving to the cloud. Michael saw one significant problem: no one was actively working to create a full computing solution in the cloud.
And so Globaldyne Systems was born.
When you purchase one of their three different plans, Globaldyne provides you with a program through which you can access a virtual desktop. This program can run on a computer, smartphone, or tablet, allowing you to access your virtual desktop from anywhere.
If you’re a light computer user, you can purchase their “Core-1” plan. The “Core-2” plan is for the average user, and the “Core-4” plan is for the heavy user who needs serious processing power.
If you need to “upgrade” your computer, you can do so with just a few clicks of the mouse, and because you don’t own the physical computer, all maintenance and updates are done by Globaldyne. This means you never have to worry about pushing out an update to 50 different users.
All the virtual desktops run Windows Server 2012 R2 and are built on top of enterprise grade hardware. The servers are located in a highly secured data center in Montreal, ensuring total security over the virtual desktops.
The beauty of the Globaldyne model is that it allows you to use a high-powered computer without shelling out boatloads of cash. For just $70 per month, you can use a 4 core, 8 GB RAM, virtual desktop. Compare that to $1,200 for the latest Alienware laptop. As an entrepreneur/small business owner, the savings on maintenance alone make this a no-brainer.
Globaldyne is also a smart choice for those who travel frequently. Nothing feels worse than finding out your laptop is on the next flight to Beijing after you finally landed from a 16-hour flight. All your files, gone. Your high-priced computer, lost. Even if you backed up your files, you still need to purchase a new computer and reload all the files. With Globaldyne, you never lose a laptop and you never lose your files.
Globaldyne Systems won’t be the solution for everyone. There are some jobs where you just need to own your computer. But with cloud computing constantly evolving, becoming cheaper and faster, Globaldyne is charting a clear path to the future.
