Many enterprises across the globe are moving towards a mid to long term remote work strategy. This is unlike the early days of the pandemic, during which, most solutions were thought of as a short term and stop gap arrangement.
However, recent studies conducted around modern workforce trends clearly indicate that remote work is a reality that is here to stay for a considerable amount of time. This is where the process of selecting the best and most cost efficient platform begins.
Many enterprises have arrived at a consensus that Desktop Virtualization is a very effective answer to modern workforce needs. This results in a seamless access of enterprise resources to remote employees, regardless of where they may be physically located.
However, when it comes to desktop virtualization, the two main deployment models that stand out from the other available alternatives include the on premise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and the cloud based Desktop as a Service (DaaS).
In this post, we will highlight some key aspects where the cloud based DaaS model results in tremendous cost savings for your enterprise.
Need for On-Premise Hardware Eliminated
This is the foremost advantage of DaaS solutions such as dinWorkspaces, as the need for deploying a costly on premise data center is eliminated. This translates into saving big on a major hardware investment, along with the overheads associated with it.
Move from a CapEx to OpEx Model
The element of total cost of the desktop virtualization solution is also drastically reduced in the case of a cloud based DaaS solution. As you pay only for the resources you actually use, you are able to shift from a Capital Expenditure (CapEx) model to an OpEx model.
Scale the Cloud Infrastructure on the Fly
In traditional and legacy, on premise systems, you first have to invest in enhancing your hardware capabilities, before you can even think about scaling the infrastructure up. In the case of rolling back, the exact opposite is true, as you end up stuck with excess hardware.
In most such cases, you end up owning excess hardware, which is drastically losing its value without delivering any tangible value to the enterprise. In the case of DaaS, the process of scaling the environment up or down is just a few clicks away, without any hardware.
Cost Optimization With DaaS
Leading DaaS providers like dinCloud offer a wide range of choices for their cloud offerings. Each of these choices has been carefully designed to meet your Storage, RAM, CPU and GPU needs of varying degrees.
As a result, if you choose wisely, you will be using Cloud Hosted Virtual Desktops with just the right performance specs for the workloads involved. What you achieve at the end is a highly optimized infrastructure in terms of both the capability and costs.
Centralized and Multi Layered Security
The enhanced security posture of high quality DaaS providers like dinCloud does not directly result in cost savings for you. However, as you get multi layered and robust security built into the DaaS service itself, you don’t have to invest in stand alone security solutions.
Remote work is a reality of the modern workplace and the sooner enterprises realize this, the better will it be for all the stakeholders involved. A high quality DaaS solution like dinHVD will result in cost savings, both in the short as well as long term.
