About Shells

Shells is Desktop as a Service (DaaS), a virtual cloud desktop running Windows 10 or various Linux distributions that can be accessed from any web-enabled device through an app or a browser on any web-enabled smart device such as a tablet, smartphone, old laptop or a smart TV.

Switching between operating systems is a matter of pressing a few buttons and within just a couple of minutes your new desktop is ready to go!

Shells is for individuals wishing to transition their work to the safety and security of the cloud as well as the flexibility of having an always-on desktop PC or for small to big business wishing to provide their workers an affordable desktop PC for work without having to purchase and ship expensive hardware. Each Shell can be up and running within minutes of signing up!

Shells is all about privacy, users' shell functions as a VPN as all traffic is routed through the cloud server.
