What is Cloud Computing?

PC Magazine defines cloud computing concisely and effectively as “storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive.” Doky does just that. Your local device simply needs to give you access to the internet through a browser. Once logged into Doky, you can access Doky storage drive with all your data, along with virtual apps that replace the types of programs that are typically installed on a personal computer.

What is a Virtual Workspace?

Logging into a personal computer gives you access to hard drives, files, software, a browser, email, office documents, video conferencing, instant messaging and more, driven by an operating system. A virtual workspace does the same thing, but it lives in the cloud, allowing you to access all these things from any device through a browser. Once you log, you’re virtually signing into a personal computer that lives in the cloud. If you log out in the middle of work, with a number of documents, emails and chats still open, you can log back in using a different device and pick right back up where you left off. To make this even more convenient, Doky Spaces allows you to place everything associated with a given project in the same tab for easy access.
