Enable Desktop-as-a-Service to increase agility and productivity without the burdens of VDI

Physical desktops and laptops are often a poor fit for today’s dynamic, digital workspace. And traditional VDI requires expertise to deliver and maintain. Instead, leverage Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) to enable users to access applications and information from anywhere while data remains secure.

Dive into Desktop-as-a-Service

Explore the rise of DaaS in the workplace and the many use cases for which organizations are finding DaaS to be a key driver of productivity and cost savings.

Powering the Digital Workspace

DaaS Is an Engine of Digital Workspace Transformation

Today, many enterprises are choosing desktop-as-a-service solutions as a complement to their existing VDI deployments, while others choose it as an alternative to VDI. In both scenarios, DaaS provides substantial benefits—it’s fast and flexible to deploy, places virtually no burden on IT admins, and provides organizations with application agility.

DaaS Solves a Number of VDI Issues

Many organizations choose DaaS over VDI because it’s simply a better fit. Running VDI in-house can be challenging due to constraints that may include app integration and delivery, budget limitations, and lack of VDI experts. VDI also requires significant upfront capital expense, and you may find yourself regularly adding hardware as the number of virtual desktop users grows. If demand shrinks, however, you’re left paying for unused hardware resources.
