Desktop as a Service FAQs:

A virtual desktop allows a user to virtually log into their desktop via a web browser or smart-device app. The user will be able to access their files, documents, and whatever else is stored in their cloud-based desktop without restriction to a specific location or device.

Desktop as a Service is a technology that allows organizations to move all their applications and desktops to the cloud, allowing users to connect to cloud-based desktops through an Internet connection from any device.

A traditional desktop environment and a virtual desktop environment function in a lot of the same ways. The main difference lies in how you access them. A traditional desktop environment is accessed by logging onto the local, physical machine where your data and applications are stored. With a virtual desktop, you log into the desktop environment via a web browser, allowing users to access their desktop on virtually any device via an Internet connection. Not only does this offer immense flexibility, but it also provides a secure way for employees to access corporate data.
