Virtual private server hosting provider Infinitely Virtual announced on Wednesday it is now offering QuickBooks, Intuit’s financial management software, on a cloud-hosted basis to its customers.

Infinitely Virtual is providing QuickBooks capability to clients via its virtual server platform, allowing clients to stream the software via the cloud.

This is certainly something that other web hosting companies could sell to their own small and medium-sized clients as a strong value-added offering.

“With QuickBooks the go-to financial software for millions of users, we are excited about the opportunity to host QuickBooks for clients who want the advantages of 24×7, secure, hosted data,” said Adam Stern, founder and CEO of Infinitely Virtual. “With QuickBooks and our hosting platform, our customers have the dual advantages of industry-leading software backed by our security and application-consistent backup systems that provide ultimate data protection.”

Infinitely Virtual was selected to host QuickBooks based on its ability to provide effective application hosting platforms, including best-in-class security, customer support, uptime and reliability, and licensing compliance management.

The company is offering four options for QuickBooks hosting including InfiniteApp QuickBooks, InfiniteApp Dedicated QuickBooks, QuickBooks Terminal Server and QuickBooks Terminal Server-Premium.

Infinitely Virtual’s proprietary application virtualization platform, InfiniteApp enables clients to stream applications from the cloud, and is compatible with Windows, Linux, Mac, iPad or Android.

It now also enables clients to stream QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier or QuickBooks Accountant directly to their desktop.  Through the cloud, clients can share QuickBooks data files with other users anywhere in the world.

InfiniteApp customers can choose a shared farm of terminal servers or a dedicated server, which gives them the advantage of installing any app they want.

For customers who do not necessarily need the entire InfiniteApp experience but who may want to upgrade later, QuickBooks Terminal Server and QuickBooks Terminal Server-Premium are available.

The Premium level also gives clients redundant Active Directory, controllers, Fileserver and SharePoint capability.

Infinitely Virtual customers have the option of purchasing as many QuickBooks packages as they want and paying Infinitely Virtual to host the software.

Alternatively, customers can license QuickBooks Pro, Premium or Accountant Edition from Infinitely Virtual on a monthly basis.

Earlier this month, Infinitely Virtual began offering a hosted product based on Microsoft’s SQL Server 2012, along with adding VMware’s vCloud Director to its hosting platform.
