What is a

Remote Desktop is a cloud computing offering that enables businesses to deliver cloud-hosted virtual desktops to any device, from anywhere. DaaS solutions provide complete hosted desktops for applications and email securely delivered over the web. They’re simple to buy and easy to manage, with no software for IT to maintain.

DaaS is offered as a subscription service and is multitenant in nature. The backend virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) infrastructure, including the virtual machines that run desktop operating systems, is hosted by a third-party cloud provider. The DaaS provider then streams the virtual desktops to a customer’s end-user devices.

DaaS providers manage the VDI deployment, as well as the maintenance, security, upgrades, data backup, and storage. And the customer manages the applications and desktop images. DaaS is a good choice for organizations that don’t want to invest in and manage their own on-premises VDI.

NEED HELP IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT DaaS FOR YOUR NEEDS?

We're here to help you get started with the DaaS services.

Monthly

The charges for the Service apply on a monthly basis. With monthly billing, you pay a fixed monthly fee for unlimited usage during the month, which is best for workers who use their Virtual Desktop full-time or as their primary desktop. If a Virtual Desktop is launched after the first of a month, then the monthly price for that Virtual Desktop will be adjusted on a pro rata basis from the first day it was active to the end of that month.

Hourly

With hourly billing you pay a small fixed monthly fee per Virtual Desktop to cover infrastructure costs and storage, and a low hourly rate for each hour the Virtual Desktop is used during the month. Hourly billing works best when the Virtual Desktop are used, on average, for less than a full working day or for just a few days a month, making it ideal for part-time workers, job sharing, road warriors, short-term projects, corporate training, and education.
