Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

Desktop as a service (DaaS) involves virtual desktops delivered through a service provider and licensed with a per-user subscription. The provider takes care of backend management for small businesses that find creating their own virtual desktop infrastructure to be too expensive or resource-consuming. Businesses that aim to offer remote work options and personal device flexibility can use DaaS to create a digital workspace.

Benefits of DaaS include simplified management, increased flexibility and lower cost of ownership than traditional models.
