Introducing DaaS

Desktop as a Service, or DaaS, are cloud desktop systems that offer the computing power of a physical computer without the hassle associated with its maintenance. Most notably, DaaS platforms from Tailor IT Solutions are cloud-based, which means that they are always on and accessible from any device that is capable of accessing the internet.


The legacy approach

Traditional desktop environments require a considerable amount of resources, the most intensive of which are time and cost. Time lost to performing installations, OS and software updates, configurations, troubleshooting and dealing with end-of-life hardware issues can be crippling to enterprises, regardless of size. The inefficient use of capital due to maintaining a physical desktop environment is also considerable with an annual per-user cost of $1,200 per user.

We have a solution that that challenges the idea of on-site computing power without compromising accessibility, scalability or usability and we call this solution, Desktop as a Service.


A new kind of infrastructure

Implementing DaaS alters the landscape of your IT infrastructure in a powerful way. Cloud-based accessibility and management means that maintenance, support and technical configurations are entirely out of your hands — we administrate and manage your entire infrastructure, consequently giving you the time you need to run your business. The savings are equally monumental, with an annual per-user cost that is 33% lower than traditional physical desktop environments.


Flexibility and scalability

A benefit that sets DaaS apart from other solutions, whether they are physical or virtual, is its inherent flexibility. Cloud desktops delivered through Desktop as a Service can be deployed immediately, without the need for costly hardware provisioning and configuration. The rapid deployment capabilities of a cloud-based infrastructure means that user roles can be matched to environment requirements, such as Operating System and task-specific applications.

Leveraging data centre infrastructure via the cloud essentially puts you in the driver’s seat in terms of scalability options. Virtualisation options can be easily configured, enabling you to expand or contract your infrastructure requirements based on business need. The rapid deployment of resources, coupled with a flexible pricing structure, essentially empowers you to easily align IT requirements with capital outlays. In short, Desktop as a Service puts you in charge of your budget from day one.


Meeting today’s challenges head-on

Today’s rapidly changing world creates rife issues for those still engulfed in the physical desktop environment. These issues include corporate data security, malware, policy management, platform dependence and antiquated hardware, just to name a few. Minor issues can quickly develop into major problems in mere days. The time and effort required to troubleshoot and stave-off potential disasters simply become too much for many corporations to handle which begs the question of how to affordably manage these issues?


By its very nature as a cloud-centric solution, Desktop as a Service offers the capability to address all of these issues before they become unmanageable catastrophes:

  • Corporate Data: Maintain the integrity of sensitive data by centralising it in a secure data centre. DaaS enables you to offer highly configurable virtual working environments to your employees, hence eliminating the need for BYOD policies and the security challenges they pose.
  • Usage and Policy Enforcement: Centralised cloud-based management means that you’re in control of all aspects of policy management and enforcement without compromising the user experience. As a result, users can access information they need, but can’t pose a security risk to your infrastructure.
  • Cost Savings: The Desktop as a Service environment enables you to quickly decrease hardware-related capital outlays. Hardware approaching its end-of-life can be re-purposed for DaaS access while new hardware purchases can be limited to highly cost-effective thin client options.
  • Automated Threat Management: The centralisation of a cloud-based infrastructure means the detection and mitigation of Internet-based threats are handled from a position of strength via a state-of-the-art data centre. The data flow is in your favour, with all in and outbound traffic essentially cleansed and purified before it can pose any threat to your organisation.
  • Platform Independence: With DaaS, users can access data from any device, whether it’s a thin client, iPad, Android, virtual machine or Chromebook. This capability gives you the option of managing workforce accessibility without compromising security.
  • Absolute Accessibility: Leveraging data centre infrastructure via the cloud enables your users to enjoy pure mobility. As long as there is an Internet connection and a remote access client, your user’s virtual desktop will be waiting for them whether they’re in the office, on the go or connecting from home.
