Cloud hosted desktops, NJ

What is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)?

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is cloud-based service hosted by cloud service provider (CSP). The cloud service provider managed all underlying back-end, such as data storage, virtual servers, hosted desktops, compute resources, networking and virtual private networking back to corporate. With Infrastructure as service you can move your existing servers and services to cloud or have a hybrid environment where some services are on the cloud and some are on premises.

What is Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?       

The cloud service provider hosts the virtual desktops (Desktop-as-a-Service) on the cloud infrastructure and manages them by allowing anytime and anywhere access to desktops, applications and services. Your entire organization can have their desktops data stored on the cloud so in the event of traditional desktops and laptops hard disk failures it doesn’t affect their business data.
