CloudZen Partners has a deep bench of engineering experience to solution the proper DaaS or VDI solution for your organization. Cloud based desktops are changing the landscape of Flexible IT by allowing employees to embrace a BYOD model with the ability to securely access any application from any device anywhere in the world. Major benefits of Cloud Based desktop are to eliminate hardware refresh (cap ex spend,) increase employee satisfaction with the BYOD model, reduce overall IT cost by combining; compute, licensing and management into one monthly fee. The technology is enabling organizations to scale quickly by easily adding new users with a simple click of a button and reducing IT resources as it requires NO IT management. If your industry requires specific compliance regulations, DaaS is a great way to meet the standards and sleep better at night.

Hosted Cloud Desktops with freedom from IT management
- Flexibility: It gives the users a lot of flexibility in terms of choosing the ideal time, place and device for work.
- Privacy: It is designed to meet certain standards of risk management and compliance thereby helping in the protection of confidential information.
- Access Without Interruption: A time of outrage or any disaster, a user always gets uninterrupted access to the desktop as it is at a remote location.
- Reduced Cost: Capital expenditure on equipment reduces and that money can be invested in client’s hardware.
- No Location Constraint: DaaS eliminates the need for a user to be present at the same geographic location where the work is being done and hence helps in attracting and retaining the best talent.
In a recent report released by Gartner on IT Market Clock for Hybrid Infrastructure Services, Gartner found that DRaaS, DaaS, and other mobility services will definitely see a huge growth in next 2 to 5 years as they were found to occupy the right quadrant from the top whereas the services like managed hosting and colocation will nearly disappear.
Why use Desktops-as-a-Service ?
As mobile technologies have become pervasive, businesses are looking to take advantage of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and anywhere computing work styles. User mobility is a compelling force behind the increase in Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) initiatives that are creating new and growing opportunities for Service Provider Partners. To help providers rapidly deploy DaaS functionality and manage it at cloud scale, engineers have validated a new reference architecture that is hosted on the Unified Data Center (UDC) architecture. On this scalable and cost-effective platform, the architecture delivers high user densities, outstanding performance, proven network reliability and security, and easy deployment and manageability, while providing a rich mobile user experience.
With DaaS subscription model, savvy businesses recognize the versatility and value of Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions. Employees that have ubiquitous access are more productive, responsive, and collaborative since they can work wherever and whenever it’s convenient—at home, on the road, and in the office. Empowering a mobile workforce often goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to a BYOD model in which workers use their own smartphones, tablets, laptops, and workstations. DaaS solutions can provide the “anytime, anywhere, any device” access to Windows desktops and applications that workers need for optimal efficiency.
Mobilizing the workforce can pose potential security risks if devices are compromised by theft, loss, or negligence. However, a properly implemented DaaS architecture can reduce risk by safeguarding applications and data in the datacenter, protecting intellectual property and sensitive information while centralizing application and operating system images. Instead of focusing on the complexities of deploying, maintaining, and managing a DaaS infrastructure, companies are increasingly turning to service providers to manage user mobility and BYOD initiatives that provision Windows applications and desktops as elastic cloud-based services.
Subscribers gain the advantage of shifting infrastructure costs into a more predictable and usage-based operational expense (OPEX) model. DaaS solutions that feature flexibility, manageability, high security, and an optimized user experience can help providers successfully deploy DaaS functionality at cloud-scale. To this end, our multi-tenant Service Provider Reference Architecture on UDC platforms has been tested and validated. For subscribers, the architecture brings a native user experience across a range of endpoints—smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, and Macs—even on low-bandwidth mobile networks. From the provider’s perspective, implementing the architecture on UDC platforms helps enable cost-effective services at cloud-scale across multiple tenants, infrastructure resources, and datacenters. The technologies streamline the requirements for building new offerings, adding new tenants, and expanding subscriber volumes, helping providers grow their business and increase profitability.
The Hottest Topic of Cloud Computing: DaaS vs Premises VDI
Cloud computing is a technology which has gained a lot of momentum. There are pieces of evidence and testimonies to prove that the organizations believe that it does provide a lot of competitive advantage and undoubtedly it will stay for times to come. There are a lot of segments of services provided under the umbrella of cloud services but there is a segment which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11% which is definitely a significant growth number and that segment is the global virtual desktop market.
Difference Between Virtual Desktop Infrastructure VDI And DaaS
One should not get confused, therefore, the first thing to clarify is the difference between a VDI solutions i.e. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and a DaaS i.e. Desktop as a service. In a VDI deployment, the infrastructure i.e. the desktop is placed on the campus of the user. A DaaS, on the other hand, is a service provided under the technology of cloud computing in which a virtual desktop is provided which means that the infrastructure is not on the premise of the user but placed in the virtual space and accessed from there.
The DaaS environment has been used by enterprises for a long time now but recently it is being considered as a viable option for the small and medium-sized business i.e. the SMBs too. But the question is why?
Reasons for the Growing Popularity of DaaS
Undoubtedly there is a huge potential for DaaS and cloud providers are focusing on it to get the desired success. Soon, a huge transformation will definitely be visible in this segment owing to the increased adoption of DaaS by the businesses.
