Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a virtual desktop solution that is a fully managed, outsourced alternative to in-house VDI. It allows organizations to take advantage of desktop virtualization without the hassle, time and expense of building, managing and maintaining VDI-capable infrastructure in house.

Like all VDI implementations, desktop as a service separates the desktop, data and applications from the endpoint, allowing end users to access their desktops from any internet-enabled device. Fully managed desktop as a service offerings can go as far as recommending and assisting internal teams with critical patching to prevent a data breach.

How does Desktop as a Service work?

High performance virtual desktop environments require specific infrastructure and management expertise that many organizations aren’t prepared to handle with current hardware and staff. With DaaS, the service provider is responsible for building and maintaining the required infrastructure for high-performance, high-availability virtual desktops. The provider is also responsible for updating and upgrading infrastructure and will often provide additional features such as antimalware, antivirus and data backup. Desktop as a Service is most commonly cloud based but can also be delivered via on premise data centers.
