What makes Cognition Cloud Sustainable?
Cognition Cloud reduces the environmental impact of your IT in four key ways
Longer hardware replacement lifecycles
You don’t need to replace your hardware as often so the considerable environmental impact of producing new computers and shipping them all over the world is reduced.
Over 50m tonnes of e-waste is produced each year as a result of companies disposing of old equipment. Cognition Cloud can double the lifespan of your computers helping to reduce waste.
Cognition Cloud computers are hosted in technology efficient data centres that run only on renewable energy, reducing the carbon footprint associated with powering your desktop.
Reduced power consumption
When your existing computers are used to access your cloud desktops they use up to 20% less electricity.
By migrating to Cognition Cloud you increase the lifetime of your existing hardware investment reducing cost and environmental impact.
What makes Cognition Cloud Smart?
Cognition Cloud manages all your IT needs for you and consolidates your licensing and services into a predictable monthly cost.
New standardised desktops can be deployed as and when they are needed and can flex as your company grows and your staff are onboarded.
With your data and applications centralised in the cloud, they can be accessed from any device, anywhere as long as you have an Internet connection.
Employee Satisfaction and Retention:
Employees now expect the benefits and flexibility of a hybrid or remote working environment. Cognition Cloud gives your business a number of different options to enable this.
Cognition Cloud optimised remote access operating systems are lightweight and use minimal power. As a result, existing hardware that would normally need to be replaced can be repurposed.
No matter how or where you access your desktop it will always be the same as when you last left it. No long boot up times, no profile downloads.
What makes Cognition Cloud Secure?
With Cognition Cloud you get enhanced security both in the cloud and on the endpoint you use to access the Cloud.
Cognition Cloud desktop service is based on Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop. Everything within the Azure environment is automatically encrypted and backed up and has sophisticated prevention and detection methods to mitigate cyber attacks.
When you access your desktop in the cloud, Cognition Cloud protects you with Igel OS. As a highly secure Linux-based operating system, Igel OS is virtually impossible to manipulate and extremely resistant to viruses and other malware.
