Desktop as a Service
Hosted desktop is a cloud computing solution in which virtual desktop infrastructure is outsourced to a third-party provider. DaaS functionality relies on the virtual desktop, which is a user-controlled session or dedicated machine that transforms on-demand cloud services for users and organizations around the world. This is an efficient model in which the service provider manages all the back-end responsibilities that would normally be provided by application software. DaaS facilitates the management of various types of computer resources, including desktops, laptops, handheld units and thin clients.
