COMPARE THE BENEFITS OF DAAS VS. VDI
Cloud desktops are cheaper, easier to use and easier to implement than VDI. They can save your IT department from some of the hassle that comes with VDI because the DaaS provider your company chooses will take care of resource provisioning, load balancing and network issues.
In addition, DaaS pilot programs require much less planning than VDI pilots. If your company expands or downsizes, DaaS can instantly expand or downsize with it. DaaS also circumvents the upfront costs required to set up a virtual infrastructure, including any new personnel you might need to manage it.
As with VDI, users will be able to work from anywhere. But with cloud desktops, they can benefit from improved performance, even on smart-phones and other hardware that is less powerful than PCs or laptops. As a result, devices and workers can be more efficient and productive.
Unlike VDI, the costs of DaaS over time are predictable, thanks to the subscription-based model that providers use. Additionally, you aren’t responsible for the time and money it takes to replace faulty hardware.
DaaS is becoming increasingly popular, which means many flavors are available for companies looking to hop on the bandwagon.
DaaS is a cloud-based desktop-delivery model in which a cloud provider hosts and delivers virtual desktops to users. Rather than hosting VDI yourself—and fronting the associated costs—DaaS allows your company to subscribe to one of several services that will do the heavy lifting for you.
