How does the web app look and feel to use?

TuClouds works with clients to ensure that they are given a finished product that looks and feels the way they want it to. The results rely heavily on the user’s ability to communicate with TuCloud. All users must request a custom quote, so they see little other than the company’s website prior to initiating a discussion with the TuClouds team. Overall, TuClouds gives off an air of professionalism and clearly takes what it does very seriously (a fact that is evident throughout the company’s extensive portfolio).

How does the registration process work?

TuCloud provides customized service that requires a custom quote. Companies and organizations interested in receiving a quote can click the “Contact” link in the upper, right hand corner of the TuCloud homepage. This provides the user with the company’s email addresses and phone numbers. There is no quote request or account creation form currently available on the site. A form would be helpful for interested users initiating a quote discussion.

What does it cost to use the application?

TuCloud provides users with three subscription options when purchasing hosted virtual desktop services. The first is the Cloud User account which costs $29.99 per month per user and includes 1.5 GB of desktop ram, 250 MBs of persistent storage space, 1 CPU per desktop unlimited desktop bandwidth and free 24 hour support. The Knowledge User account costs $49.99 per month per user and includes 2 GBs of desktop ram and 4 GBs of persistent storage per desktop. The Power User account costs $79.99 per month per user and includes 4 GBs of desktop ram, 2 CPUs per desktop and 8 GBs of persistent storage. Each account requires a minimum of 50. Accounts for more than 150 users require a custom price quote.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Tucloud is intended for medium to large size businesses in need of a virtual desktop solution. The company offers variety of services along with its hosted virtual desktops and HDX features. Company accounts begin at 50 users, which means a high per month subscription fee that might be a bit lofty for a new or small business to fit into their monthly budget. No individual account is currently available.
