Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is part of our Technology as a Service (TaaS) offerings. But what is DaaS? How does it work? And how does this service offering improve your network processes and operations?
DaaS is a cloud-based service offering that enables you to provide virtual desktops for any device in your network, no matter where it is. With a DaaS solution, you use a hosted desktop to use applications and send emails in a secure environment. That gives your network increased mobility without saddling you with any software to maintain.
This is how a DaaS solution works: on the back end, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) provides the virtual machines that run the DaaS solution’s desktop operating systems. A third-party cloud provider hosts the VDI, and the DaaS solution streams the desktop services to all your business’s end-user devices.
While you could host on-premises VDI, DaaS uses a third-party cloud provider, which can save you time and money on installation and maintenance in the long run. This solution gives you the ability to connect all your devices with virtual desktops without forcing you to invest in extra software or hardware.
