From laptops in coffee shops to smartphones in hotels, many employees have found ways to become mobile workers. However, device constraints limit their access to work data and programs. A better way is for employees to access virtualized desktops over an internet connection in any browser. While this option has been around for decades, many companies have yet to use these cloud-hosted desktop environments.
Desktop as a service (DaaS) is a safe and secure cloud-based desktop that allows access to your company’s apps and data from any device with an internet browser. Similar to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), DaaS is a type of VDI that a provider manages for you. As they stream the desktop to your device, these companies handle hardware breakdown, storage issues and other areas of concern.
DaaS is beneficial for health care, education, retail and other industries that require flexible solutions for remote work or business endeavors. The benefits of working with a desktop as a service provider include:
DaaS lets you work at any time from any place in any way. You can access your desktop on various operating systems like Apple iOS or Microsoft Windows and device types such as tablets, laptops, desktops and smartphones. All you need is a reliable HTML-based browser and a stable internet connection.
The approach uses less power and utilizes low energy requirements. Working with a desktop as a service means you avoid overpaying for random access memory (RAM) or power central processing units (CPUs). Also, subscription-based plans are available, so you can choose what works for you.
The added security is a bonus as cloud servers allow for peace of mind. The DaaS provider backs up data in a protected host environment, which is more secure than typical computers. If you have issues with your device, IT support can install security patches and updates for you. If you lose your device or someone steals it, we can disconnect your device from the service. Also, IT specialists can encrypt your DaaS using multi-step authentication as an extra defense measure.
IT teams can provide remote support if you need assistance. Additionally, DaaS expands disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). For instance, disasters could damage everything in the office, including computers. With DaaS, data is saved and managed in a location separate from the physical building. This separation makes backup and disaster recovery easier to manage to get you back on track after an emergency. You can access your desktop and work on another device until the team fixes the main one.
