DaaS Overview

The landscape of the desktop is going through significant change. End users are more remote than ever before, working from home, the road or branch offices, and they are accessing corporate resources from a variety of devices.

At the same time, IT is under immense pressure to enable this new mobile workforce without sacrificing security and control. IT must ensure that corporate data and applications are secure and while controlling the costs associated with the management of end user devices.

Organizations need a robust, secure and affordable solution that will accommodate shrinking IT budgets and diverse end-user needs. The time is right for companies to take advantage of cloud-hosted desktops and transform end-user computing into next generation workspaces.

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) frees businesses from the endless cycle of purchasing, supporting, upgrading and ultimately replacing local PCs by providing an untethered “virtual” workspace that can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, on nearly any device, all for a predictable monthly fee. Moreover, customers and end users can control their DaaS environment via a self-service web portal.

By leveraging desktop virtualization from VMware, IT managers are freed from the need to “touch” each desktop when adding or removing users or to fix problems and deliver new applications, saving staff time and keeping employees productive.
