What Is Desktop as a Service DaaS?

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a cloud computing service that offers virtual desktop access. With a virtual desktop users have access their desktop from any other device with an internet connection. DaaS is a scalable solution that easily meets the needs of the business. The main DaaS benefits are a high level of security, cost savings, and ease of use.

There are two main types of DaaS:

  • Persistent. Customized for each user and are saved on the cloud. Persistent desktops are more expensive but offer a better user experience.
  • Non-persistent. Not customized for each user and are wiped clean each time a user logs out. Non-persistent desktops are less expensive than persistent desktops, but they offer a less personalized user experience.
