For the past two years now, enterprises have been flocking towards Cloud Computing solutions for a number of reasons. The sheer versatility that is offered by the Cloud makes it a unique value proposition, and one that is also flexible.

Whether we talk of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS), the Cloud has you covered. Perhaps the most compelling factor for the cloud has initially been the SaaS model.

After fully leveraging top notch SaaS solutions, enterprises were quick to realize the potential that DaaS services like dinCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD) had to offer. So, the adoption of DaaS has been consistently rising ever since.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Desktop as a Service Provider

The Pandemic Catalyzes DaaS Demand

The Covid-19 pandemic has acted as a strong catalyst for the global demand for Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solutions. However, no two DaaS providers or solutions are created equal. Enterprises need to consider a few factors before making the leap towards DaaS.

In this post, we will highlight some of the most important considerations that your IT and other top decision makers should consider when choosing a DaaS provider.

Minimum Users Requirement

The strongest value proposition for DaaS solutions lies with Small to Medium Enterprises (SME). Most SMEs do not have the financial muscle to setup on premise Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI). The minimum user requirement could impost entry barriers.

With a quality DaaS provider like dinCloud, you can even start with as low as 10 users. This is ideal for small to medium sized businesses, which want to avail the flexibility and versatility of the cloud, but normally can’t do so due to such entry barriers.

DaaS Offerings / Packages

Most DaaS providers do structure their offerings / packages, but you will realize that most of their low end offerings are not of much use in real world scenarios. dinCloud on the other hand offers a wide range of DaaS packages for its enterprise users.

Depending on the nature of your enterprise workloads and budgetary constraints, you can easily choose the optimal Cloud Hosted Desktop from among dinCloud’s packages. We round it all off with a Flat Rate Pricing Model, more on that later.

Infrastructure and Endpoint Security

dinCloud’s data centers are equipped with some of the best physical and cyber security controls in the cloud industry. Our data centers comply with the best international standards for security and privacy of your valuable enterprise data.

For endpoint security and preventing un-authorized access to your data that is hosted in our data centers, we offer a robust Two Factor Authentication (2FA) mechanism. This protects your data, even if an employee’s device is lost or stolen.

24/ 7/ 365 Customer Support

In the realm of DaaS providers, personalized Customer Support is a major differentiating factor. dinCloud is one of the few leading DaaS providers in the cloud market space to have a nearly 98% customer satisfaction ratio.

Any migration to DaaS requires close coordination during the transition phase. At dinCloud, we take you along every step of the migration process, making it as efficient and seamless as it is humanly possible.

Flat Rate Pricing

This is perhaps one of the most important differentiators of dinCloud as a DaaS provider. We offer our valuable DaaS users a Flat Rate Pricing Model, taking all the guesswork out of the equation.

With dinCloud Hosted Virtual Desktops (dinHVD), you enjoy un-rivaled peace of mind that there will be no hidden costs or unwelcome surprises in your monthly cloud bill. This in turn makes your cost projections a lot more refined and accurate.


The world is rapidly moving towards DaaS, due to the transition towards a hybrid workforce model. Whether its work from home, the office or somewhere else, DaaS presents itself as a reliable, secure, robust and scalable technology platform for enterprises.
