Desktop as a service (DaaS)

Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

What is It?

Utilising VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) technology, Desktop as a Service refers to cloud-based desktop virtualization.  With DaaS, the Windows desktop doesn’t reside on the user device.  It is actually running in the cloud, and the screen is sent through the internet to the device.

How does It Work?

Users access their Windows desktops using a lightweight client installed on their devices. The device type doesn’t matter – it can be running on Windows or MacOS, be it a Chromebook, an iPad, an Android tablet, or even just within the browser.

Once a secured connection is established, the Windows desktop will appear on the user device, just like any local Windows desktop.

Desktop as a Service can be easily integrated with your existing corporate directory regardless of whether the directory is in your local office, your private datacenter, or public cloud provider.
