Desktops as a Service (DaaS) is the delivery of a virtual desktop offered as a hosted service offered by a service provider. DaaS has the potential to radically change the way desktops are purchased and managed. However, as is typical with such emerging, disruptive technologies, there is a good deal of confusion about what is and isn’t possible with DaaS.
This paper exposes—and debunks—the top 10 DaaS myths, which range from supposed cost, user experience and security issues, to ease of use, licensing and integration limitations. It shows how, by consuming virtual desktops as a cloud-hosted service, businesses can deliver high-performing desktops to users on any device in minutes, easing IT management burdens and reducing the total cost of desktop ownership.
