"I hate systems like this"

What do you like best?

There is a lot of customization I assume that your company can set up. Where I work the person who set it up initially set us up with next to zero permissions for our computers, I can understand not wanting to bog down a desktop that is shared with outside temporary files and all the different user account needed on a computer and this does a job at that, there are just a lot more kinks that need to be worked out, whether that is specifically our IT department or whether that is the program is yet to be seen.

What do you dislike?

When we first loaded my computer with it, it was using up 98%of the CPU with back up programs that limited the use of the computer. It slowed my computer down to the point of crashing multiple times. The IT department could not understand why it was doing this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure all of the permissions are discussed before implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a virtual desktop like this allows for a business to have smaller physical computers because no one is saving anything directly on the computer, everything is running off the cloud, this can be a pain as mentioned because it limits the use of the computer. The upside is when employees leave or if someone logs onto a computer they are not normally on it does not take up memory saving all their personal files and loading it onto the C drive.
