What is desktop as a service?

Desktops-as-a-Service or simply DaaS, securely delivers virtual apps and desktops from the cloud to any device or location. This desktop virtualization solution provisions secure saas and legacy applications as well as full Windows-based virtual desktops and delivers them to your workforce. DaaS offers a simple and predictable pay-as-a-go subscription model, making it easy to scale up or down on-demand. This turnkey service is easy to manage, simplifying many of the IT admin tasks of desktop solutions.

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) delivers virtual applications and desktop services via a public or private cloud service. Your workforce can access this service through an internet connection via an html-based web browser or a secure application downloaded to a device such as a laptop, desktop, thin client or tablet.

DaaS is offered as a subscription service and is multitenant in nature. The backend virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) infrastructure, including the virtual machines that run desktop operating systems, is hosted by a third-party cloud provider. The DaaS provider then streams the virtual desktops to a customerís end-user devices.

DaaS providers manage the VDI deployment, as well as the maintenance, security, upgrades, data backup, and storage. And the customer manages the applications and desktop images. DaaS is a good choice for organizations that donít want to invest in and manage their own on-premises VDI solution.

DaaS is a form of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), hosted in the cloud. With VDI, an organization deploys Microsoft virtual desktop from its own on-premises data centers. In-house IT teams are responsible for deploying the Citrix virtual desktop as well as purchasing, managing, and upgrading the infrastructure.
