The safety record and sheer efficiency of cloud computing is enticing many businesses to inquire about moving their data and apps into an off-premise infrastructure.
As an IT administrator you may be wondering, what’s the best way to transition your clients to the cloud. You have two primary options.
Desktop as a Service (DaaS) and Workspace as a Service (WaaS) solutions both offer virtualized desktops with cloud based storage, data backup and access to the desktop from any connected device.
What sets the two apart?
Think of DaaS offerings as empty shells. They provide you with a virtualized desktop but nothing more than that. You still have to install an operating system, virus protection software and every app that your client needs to go about their daily tasks. This process makes setup time intensive. I don’t know about you, but I’ve yet to meet a client that’s excited about paying for a cumbersome IT project.
Cloud Workspace® by CloudJumper is a WaaS solution that is delivered ready-to-use.
