What does Desktop as a Service mean?

Can you restrict your work to office desktops? No, right? Gone are the days when employees could only work from office confinements. With the DaaS solution, it’s time to move to the flexible, work-from-anywhere virtual desktop that boosts your productivity and manages your upfront costs.

Our Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution gives you remote access by hosting your virtual desktops on our cloud server.

Desktop as a Service empowers your employees to perform their best—irrespective of their location. Now, your employees can work on virtual apps and desktops from the cloud to any device.

Using a virtual desktop solution enables businesses to escape the “tyranny of proximity” — as you work in a High-Performance Computing environment and get the parallel processing of multiple GPU intensive applications at high speed from any location.

Whether you own a global enterprise or a startup, our managed DaaS solution frees you from desktop management hassles and keeps your costs lower and your employees more productive.

Manage your Remote Workforce With ACE-Powered DaaS- Services

How does ACE Desktop as a Service work?

DaaS hosting is basically virtual desktops that work on a public or hybrid cloud. This gives businesses the power to leverage the cloud desktops on any device through an internet connection.

Virtual desktop as a service is a multi-tenant cloud computing infrastructure. Thus, it securely enables multiple users to access virtual desktops in the cloud environment. Everything from deployment security upgrades and storage is managed by the DaaS provider, Ace Cloud Hosting. Therefore, it eliminates all the IT bottlenecks and reduces the capital expenses in setting up backend virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), including virtual machines and servers.

DaaS is the best choice for businesses that don’t have big budgets to set up data centers and operate their own on-premises VDI solution.

How is DaaS Better than the On-premise VDI?

VDI and DaaS are both virtualization solutions that give anywhere anytime access to the users. However, they are not the same. But what’s the difference between them?

With VDI, enterprises hire in-house IT teams to implement, upgrade, and manage virtual desktops from their own on-premises datacenters. On the other hand, Desktop as a Service resides on the cloud infrastructure. Therefore, the enterprises that go for DaaS don’t need to manage the desktops. In fact, they get significant benefits without the hassle of managing the hardware and data centers.

Let’s see the key differences between both virtual desktop solutions. 

DaaS is a fully managed cloud solution that gives you access to business resources without setting up infrastructure. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is a technology deployed in your on-premise data centers.
You get a pay-as-you-go pricing model. Therefore, you can lower your capital expenses and pay only for the desktops you use. You need to invest in setting up servers, data centers, and other involved capital expenses to give remote access to multiple users.
DaaS offers you on-demand scalability where providers can quickly scale up or down your desktops and the configurations. Scaling resources is challenging as it involves hardware upgrade.
Hosting your desktops on the cloud with DaaS offloads the major maintenance and management tasks, reducing the strain on your IT department. Your in-house IT team has to handle critical backups and computations.

Moreover, providers keep data in robust data centers with physical security like CCTV surveillance.

Desktop Virtualization is the approach to creating virtual desktops on any remote server or cloud environment. Working depends on one company to another. Majorly there are three deployment models: VDI, DaaS, and RDS.

  • In VDI, desktops are created by your IT team from the office premise server or any remote server.
  • In DaaS, desktops are created by a cloud provider like ACE, and they entirely manage all the IT tasks.
  • RDS is a feature of Windows desktops where users work on desktop sessions on a shared virtual machine.

VDI and DaaS are based on similar infrastructure, but they are not the same. Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and DaaS are desktop virtualization models that offer remote access to users from a centralized server. But they are not hosted in the same way.

In VDI, your IT team sets up and maintains the centralized servers and data centers, whereas, in DaaS, the case is different; the data is in highly secure data centers. Thus, your business doesn’t have to hire a vast IT team to deploy, manage, and update the infrastructure. Hence, in that sense, VDI vs. DaaS, we can actually say that DaaS and VDI are similar but not the same. DaaS comes with various features that are not there in on-premise VDI.

To know more, read DaaS vs. VDI: What Is The Difference and Which One To Choose? (acecloudhosting.com)

No, VDI is not desktop as a service. However, desktop as a service is a type of virtual desktop solution. In DaaS Hosting, you get virtual desktops as a service. The significant difference between VDI and desktop as a service is that in-house VDI is managed by the business itself and the desktop as a service comes with a DaaS provider who will ease the management tasks. They both have a similar internal infrastructure, but the benefits they provide are different.
