Keep apps and data together.
Maintain configuration consistency.
The right experience, not the best.

These are just a few of the best practices I’ve spoken about when discussing VDI. But what happens when I move from VDI to DaaS?

Before we go any further, do we understand how VDI and DaaS differ? Here’s the simplest explanation I can come up with:

  • VDI: Virtual desktops hosted within an on-prem data center
  • DaaS: Virtual desktops hosted within a cloud

So, the main difference between the two is the virtual desktop’s hosting location. Does hosting location really matter with regards to best practices?

  • Short answer: YES
  • Long answer: Yes — attend this webinarGetting to a State of OPEX: 3 Pillars of DaaS Success — on Wednesday, 12/13/17 at 12pm EST to learn more.

Looking forward to (virtually) seeing you there!
