Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is the delivery of a fully managed virtual desktop instance (VDI) hosted on cloud infrastructure. DaaS enables your workforce to access corporate applications and data via a desktop experience on almost any device connected to the internet. Not only does this provide your team with a seamless user experience, but it also improves security, disaster recovery, software updates, among other benefits. In this article, we’ll explore some of the major benefits of Desktop as a Service for your business.
Modernize Your Workplace
The workplace has been transformed by digital innovation. Expectations have changed. Millennials expect workplace technology to work as good or better than their own devices. Your team is comfortable with technology and count on you to provide them with the right tools to get the job done. Now with the growing trend of remote work, there’s no better time to modernize your workplace with DaaS.
DaaS moves costs from CAPEX to OPEX, leaving you more capital for your growing business. DaaS structured pricing enables you to know exactly what workforce expansion will cost the IT department. Eliminating infrastructure and hardware purchases that will soon be outdated and bundling everything into one cost cuts excess spending. You can even go as far as using a bring your own device policy, where staff is required to use personal hardware to access corporate resources. This is particularly useful for organizations leveraging remote workers.
DaaS moves the security risk from hundreds of end-user devices and puts it all into the controlled and managed environment of a data center. Lost or stolen devices no longer pose a security risk. There is no data stored on local machines. DaaS removes the need to create VPNs to access applications and data held by the company.
DaaS enables businesses to add user workstations fast and easily. This is very handy when your organization uses contract resources or temporary project teams. There’s no hardware to buy or manage, giving you the flexibility to create a desktop almost instantly and then delete when no longer required. At the same time, this helps you control data access and compliance without being over-restrictive. Data remains in the data center at all times.
With an increase in remote staff, rolling out new applications or patching existing software has become a logistical nightmare. Trying to coordinate people bringing in physical devices to be patched is a big issue for companies. When you go with DaaS, this logistical bottleneck is eliminated. You operate from one central image, a change is made one time, and just like that everyone is upgraded and operating on the same version. DaaS can run on almost any device, no matter its configuration.
