Desktop as a Service

Desktop as a Service (DaaS), also known as Workspace as a Service (WaaS), is a new way to manage and deploy hyper-secure cloud-based work environments that meet the demands of modern users and modern IT. A proper DaaS platform brings together Identity Management, Endpoint Security, Hosted Applications, and the users entire desktop itself into a single, secure, environment for end-users simply access via a browser, while unburdening IT from the job of managing and maintaining computers.

Why DaaS / WaaS?

Cloud-based Workspaces and Desktops are a next-generation approach to end-user computing. Especially important today, they deliver a central and secure on-ramp to each users corporate desktop from nearly any device, in the office, at home, or on the road. With only a browser, their network credentials, and multi-factor authentication, users gain access to their entire corporate environment, applications, line-of-business systems, and even their full Windows desktop as if they were right there on the LAN. Users can securely access from any internet-enabled device with a modern browser: chromebook, mac, windows, smartphone, tablet, PC, whatever they choose!  All while IT delivers only the features needed for each user, easily and securely.

What can DaaS Do for Me?

  • Reduce or even eliminate hardware management and slash costs; reduce IT infrastructure spend by 50% or more
  • Provision cloud desktops in minutes with zero-touch, zero-delay provisioning

High-Performance Workspaces 

If your work requires high-performance computing, many of our Cloud Workspace providers are able to deliver shockingly impressive compute for the the highest demanding software.  Scale CPU and GPU for the ultimate in high-compute performance. Some provider solutions can auto provision and scale GPU as needed based on workload specifications – from a single GPU core per machine up to 16,384 GPU cores. For even larger jobs, multiple machines can be chained together.

Finish Compute-Intensive Tasks in Minutes, Not Days

Some cloud-based workstation solutions can match needed resources to application requirements without customer intervention, enabling even the most compute-intensive design, editing,  and simulation software to run better and render faster in the cloud than on expensive, physical workstations. 

Plus, these environments can often be provision in the same tenant environment as your existing cloud infrastructure for even better performance.
