Demystifying desktop as a service: a transformative future-proof solution
In today’s digital world, organizational landscapes are evolving at an unprecedented pace. Old-school, legacy desktop environments have become outdated, time-consuming, and counter-productive to modern workforce requirements of today.
The solution to these legacy environments is here, and it’s called Desktop as a Service (DaaS).
What is DaaS?
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a cloud computing service dedicated to delivering virtual desktops to end-users via the internet. It effectively relocates the entire desktop environment, including the operating system, applications, and data, to a remote server situated within a data center. End-users can access their virtual desktops from laptops, PCs, tablets, or smartphones.
Why Should IT Leaders Deploy Virtual Desktops?
Traditional computing requires plenty of memory, storage, and processing power on each device. Since all the computing is done in the cloud with DaaS, organizations can reduce capital expenses on higher-priced devices.
Scalability becomes a series of keystrokes and mouse clicks, rather than procuring, provisioning, providing, monitoring, patching, and updating devices. Businesses can scale up or down much faster, and much cheaper than with physical devices.
DaaS centralizes security updates, patches, and backups, keeping business-critical applications and data safe. DaaS protects against lost, stolen, or damaged devices – eliminating data loss and ensuring business continuity.
Work Anywhere, Anytime, From Any Device
Your team can work from wherever they want, wherever they have internet access. Access virtual desktops from any device, promoting flexibility and the BYOD (bring your own device) trend.
Your IT team can manage and monitor the entire network from a centralized location. Fast onboarding or offboarding virtual desktops and applications means your business becomes more agile and can adapt to changes much faster.
Increase Performance and Productivity
End-users all have the same, predictable experience. No more compatibility headaches. Since all the computing is done in the cloud, data can be accessed much faster than with a traditional VPN connection.
Disaster-Proof Your Business
All the data is backed up and secured in the cloud, meaning that in the event of a disaster, recovery becomes quick and painless. Redundant data centers mean you won’t face downtime if disaster strikes.
DaaS is an eco-friendly choice, reducing energy consumption at an organizations’ physical location and contributing to a greener planet.
With DaaS, organizations can reduce waste associated with throwing out old devices. IT can refurbish and reuse older devices and still have the same level of productivity and performance since DaaS does not require physical resources off the device.
