Businesses across the globe are now entering the phase where they re-adjust their IT infrastructures to the “new normal”. The exact contours of this new normal, once we get past the Covid-19 pandemic, are still not very clear.
One thing is for sure though, businesses desperately want to cover the ground they lost to the limitations imposed by the global pandemic. To achieve this feat, enterprises need to re-think their IT infrastructures for the near future, as well as similar disruptions.
The Covid-19 pandemic has turned the tables when it comes to traditional Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) mechanisms. The vast majority of legacy BC and DR solutions proved in-adequate to cope with a crisis of this magnitude.
DaaS – A Savior for Enterprises
Right now, enterprises are still in the process of weighing the various options out there for their IT infrastructures. Among the wide range of choices out there, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) still presents itself as the most viable option.
In this post, we will highlight some of the most compelling reasons that make DaaS clearly stand out among the IT infrastructure alternatives out there.
Remote Work Support
Even when we move past this pandemic, many studies indicate that remote work will be a permanent workforce trend. DaaS solutions such as dinCloud’s Hosted Virtual Desktop (dinHVD) is an ideal platform for supporting a fully remote workforce.
Support for Home, Office and Hybrid Work
While the extent of employees returning to the workplace will vary, DaaS makes this entire debate irrelevant. Whether you opt for a Work from Home, In-office or a hybrid workforce model, your employees will enjoy seamless access to resources over DaaS.
Ease of Management
Tasks such as installing updates and downloading the latest security patches need to be performed only centrally in the case of a DaaS solution. Your IT team does not need to undertake the daunting task of doing this manually over each physical device.
Centralized and Multi Layered Security
In a DaaS environment such as dinHVD, you enjoy centralized and multi layered security. No data is stored over physical employee devices, rather it is housed safely within one of the DaaS provider’s secure data centers.
Leading DaaS providers such as dinCloud attach great importance to data security, which is achieved by adopting a multi layered approach. Encryption, malware and ransomware protection, user authentication and endpoint security are all built into the service.
Seamless End User Experience
The myth that end user experience over DaaS solutions is inferior has been forcefully debunked during the times of the pandemic. Despite skyrocketing demand for DaaS solutions, end users generally enjoyed a seamless user experience (UX).
Centralized Management via DaaS
As a leading DaaS provider, dinCloud has developed its indigenous Cloud Orchestration Portal called dinManage. This enables you to manage your entire DaaS environment from a single user interface and that too, in a hassle free manner.
Scalability on the Fly
DaaS solutions such as dinHVD are backed by the Cloud Service Provider’s robust cloud infrastructure. This enables you to instantly scale the DaaS solution up or down, depending on your changing needs. You only pay for the cloud resources that you actually use.
The above factors make Desktop as a Service (DaaS) a clear winner for enterprises, even in the post pandemic circumstances. This was also reiterated by a recent study conducted by Gartner, which expects continued growth in the global DaaS market for the next few years.
