DaaS allows for a new approach to desktop management, allowing end users flexibility and efficiency.

What is DaaS?

Companies that are looking for ways to prioritize flexibility and scalability are migrating to Desktop as a Service (DaaS), an approach to computing that offers a consistent work experience from anywhere at any time. Whether workers prefer to return to the workplace or they are continuing to work remotely, DaaS allows for full productivity without being tied to a physical workstation.

Defining DaaS: DaaS is a transformative technology because it unleashes workers from their physical desks through a virtual desktop. It delivers desktop environments via the internet, from the operating system to data and applications, and it is all hosted in the cloud. Any device with an Internet connection can be utilized to access the virtual desktop, offering consistency in mobility.

Companies appreciate DaaS options for their cost-efficiency, achieved through purchasing desktop services on a subscription payment model. In addition, as volume demands change, spinning up more users is easy and convenient. The desktop infrastructure is managed by a cloud service provider, easing the demand on internal IT teams no longer responsible for managing and maintaining desktop hardware and the underlying infrastructure.

Why DaaS? The main goal of using DaaS is to separate the virtual desktop from the physical hardware, offering a flexible desktop environment to an end user. The hardware is eliminated from the subscriber’s responsibilities, with the hosting and management all taking place in the cloud. DaaS offers users collaboration capabilities, better disaster recovery options, and improved security.

The Basic Types of DaaS: There are two main types of DaaS models, called multi-tenancy DaaS and single-tenancy DaaS.

In multi-tenancy DaaS, a single instance of infrastructure is designed to serve many tenants or customers. The infrastructure is shared, with virtual desktops for each client separated and isolated from one another. There are cost advantages to this option because resources are shared, but customization can be limited in this model.

A single-tenancy DaaS model offers dedicated virtual desktop solutions for each client. Each customer enjoys its own instance of infrastructure, providing a high level of control and customization, with better security and compliance features. This is an ideal option for companies in highly-regulated industries with specific compliance requirements. Single-tenancy tends to be more expensive than Multi-tenancy DaaS.

Is DaaS the Same Thing as Saas? DaaS is a specific type of software as a service (SaaS). SaaS designates a broader category of cloud-based solutions available over the internet, but DaaS refers to the delivery of virtual desktop solutions.

If your company is continuing to support a remote or hybrid work environment, DaaS may prove to be a valuable implementation for your team. Not only will you experience cost savings, but your employees will appreciate having a consistently high-quality work environment, no matter where they log on to access company resources.

Sports Production Services
Safari’s work at All-Star game was terrific. Our client had a last-minute ask that my team was not aware of until the day a representative arrived on site. Their techs didn’t have a solid plan on what their needs were but Safari’s complete knowledge of networks and sharp inquiries into what our client was trying to do literally saved the day in getting their project off the ground. They could NOT have pulled off what they needed without Safari’s involvement.

I travel to sporting events, especially golf tournaments, often. Critical to my daily operation is stable and quick connectivity as I'm constantly transmitting large volumes of images. I know that when I'm working with the Safari Team I've got nothing to worry about. Their systems always work and the set-up and connection are simple. I would highly recommend Safari Events to any vendor in need of voice and data services

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for your help. The connectivity you always provide is the best we get at any tournament worldwide and is always stable. When we had a minor problem this year, you kindly changed things for us several times until, with your help, I was able to identify that it was actually a problem at our base back home! Without your help, I wouldn't have been able to do that. Many thanks, See you next time!
