Hosted Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) brings virtualization to the desktop environment, delivering enterprise-class control and manageability while maintaining the familiar end-user environment. Hosted DaaS virtualizes desktop images that can be deployed from a centralized hosting server. This provides a reduction in operational costs and improved security while maintaining the current end user experience. DaaS technology provides companies with a true win-win:
DaaS provides the end user with a virtual PC that looks and behaves exactly like their current PC whether working at the office, while traveling or at home. The user’s profile and files are stored centrally eliminating the need to maintain files on the PC itself.
For IT, DaaS saves cost by providing the ability to consolidate the number of servers supporting desktops. Additional cost savings come from central management and deployment of applications and updates, eliminating trips to the user’s desk for maintenance and improving the work experience for IT and HelpDesk personnel.
Parallels has partnered with Quest to provide a cost-sensible DaaS approach to taming desktop costs without changing the familiar physical desktop experience. The muscle behind Parallels DaaS is a design solution powered by Parallels Virtuozzo Containers technology.
