Cloud based solutions are opening up new approaches to customers that are much more cost-effective and efficient than traditional VDI, such as DaaS (Desktop as a Service). As the desktops are hosted in the cloud, the CIO or IT manager can forget about all the underlying technology on which to run the application. The cloud provider takes care of the provisioning of resources and any necessary updates.
Every company’s IT department focuses on user management and their application maintenance, getting desktops in a few clicks, paying only for the services engaged and avoiding the costly initial investments in implementation and infrastructure.
Users can access their cloud-hosted virtual desktops from any device, anywhere, even if they are hosted in a remote data centre (via public connections or VPN). Hosted desktops cut costs and provide flexibility and efficiency.
