What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

Desktops as a Service or simply DaaS, securely delivers virtual apps and desktops from the cloud to any device or location. This desktop virtualization solution provisions secure saas and legacy applications as well as full Windows-based virtual desktops and delivers them to your workforce. DaaS offers a simple and predictable pay-as-a-go subscription model, making it easy to scale up or down on-demand. This turnkey service is easy to manage, simplifying many of the IT admin tasks of desktop solutions. I hope this conversation will be helpful for the community.

Re: What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

I want to ask a few questions:


Do you only deliver DaaS from the cloud, or do you also offer an on-premises option?


Do you provide any secure access point for users?

Re: What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions help you to remotely deploy cloud-based virtual desktops. DaaS is typically centralized via a user-friendly interface, where you can control the management of virtual desktops. DaaS backend is based on virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), but this part of the operation is managed by each DaaS provider. In this post, we’ll provide a close examination of the DaaS model, including concepts, use cases, and evaluation measures for services. We’ll also show how NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP can help simplify DaaS storage across multi-cloud and hybrid architectures.


DaaS is a cloud-based managed service that enables you to deploy virtual desktops to your staff. These desktops can be deployed to any location and nearly any client, enabling staff to access applications and data when they need to. Desktops are centrally managed and require no on-premises infrastructure to host.


The working of desktop as a service


DaaS solutions are subscription services that operate from multi-tenant servers, with many clients sharing resources. These services use a backend, based on virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) infrastructure. Each desktop is contained in a virtual machine that streams to an end-user device. 


You should know that knowing the working of the Desktop as a services  model is very much necessary since it will give you in-depth information about the entire model. The more you will know about the working of this useful model, the better you will be able to use it and this is why it doesn’t matter how new you are to the world of technology or how much you know cloud, you should know how DaaS works. 


Google set its claim on the desktop market with its DaaS Chromebook, the Samsung Series 5 in 2011. At first, Chromebooks were dismissed as just browsers in a box. But over time, people began to realize that even if that's all they were, that was more powerful enough for business purposes.


With the rise of Software-as-a-Service and the decline of shrink-wrapped PC software, businesses realized that for most practical purposes, Chromebooks were all the computers their staff needed. 


You must be aware of the fact that Google is one of the biggest names when it comes to any digital trend of technology and this is why you can be sure that how can Google be left behind when it comes down to DaaS. Well, Google has been leading the market of cloud or we can say at least competing in it for a long time and it will continue doing so. 


In addition, Chromebooks do far more than just web browsers. Today, Chromebooks also run Android, Linux, and Windows apps. A high-powered business Chromebook can do more than just about any other laptop on the planet.
