WaaS vs. DaaS: Making the right choice when it comes to the cloud.


The cloud is here to stay. Both in the personal consumer market and the big business world, the cloud has quickly become a staple of popular mobile and desktop technology. However, with this popularity comes the seemingly unending number of choices you have to make when it comes to equipping your business with a cloud solution. With so many options on the market trying to capitalize on the cloud craze, how can you know which is best for you? 

One of the most common cloud configuration models is Desktop as a Service (DaaS), which, for all its popularity, is really nothing more than an empty house. DaaS provides a desktop shell that you have to fill in with all the necessary features if you want it to work right for your business. Anti-virus solutions, data backup capability, app management and more are all left to you to deal with in a DaaS set-up.

Put simply? DaaS is a cloud service that’s designed for cloud experts and engineers, by cloud experts and engineers; what good is that to the everyday user? This is a key problem in modern cloud computing that Workspace as a Service (WaaS) solutions are designed to solve.

CloudJumper’s WaaS solution is Cloud Workspace®, a total package that comes with everything you need to develop and maintain a productive, convenient and safe IT environment at your place of business. In addition to the desktop, Cloud Workspace® includes:

  • Personal and company data storage
  • Active directory
  • Anti-virus technology
  • Application management
  • Data backup
  • Total environment management from our expert team of cloud engineers

In the end, it’s up to you: would you rather a dime-a-dozen DaaS solution that puts the onus on you to make the most of it? Or would you prefer a powerful, user-friendly WaaS solution like Cloud Workspace® that puts the cloud within reach, without any extra effort on your end?
