What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?
Desktop as a Service enables delivering cloud-hosted virtual desktops to any device from anywhere. DaaS provides secure hosted desktops for applications, with no software for the internal IT department to maintain.
How does DaaS work?
DaaS is typically a subscription service. Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) infrastructure, including virtual machines that run desktop operating systems, is hosted by a third-party cloud provider like Amazon. DaaS providers manage the VDI, including deployment, security, upgrades, storage, and backups.
What’s the difference between DaaS and VDI?
DaaS is virtual desktop infrastructure hosted in the cloud. Standard VDI is on-premise; DaaS infrastructure is cloud-based.
