More and more organizations are making the move to the cloud. In fact, 99% of IT executives say they are moving some if not all of their systems to the cloud1. If you’re a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops customer, you may be thinking of moving to a hybrid or cloud services model. So here’s the question: Would a desktop as a service (DaaS) deployment provide any real advantages compared to the on-premises deployment you already have in place? Let’s take a look.
By leveraging the power of Citrix DaaS on the public cloud of your choice, your environment is already built for redundancy in the case of an unexpected event.
Cloud deployments are easily scalable. Whether you are undergoing a merger, acquisition, hiring a seasonal workforce, or bringing on a new team full time, you can get those users up and running in no time.
Now, the latest features and functionality roll out automatically within the cloud console. Streamlined management of all your cloud and on-premises resources allows your teams to focus on other strategic initiatives rather than cumbersome updates.
A more agile and modern datacenter means your infrastructure can grow with your business. And Citrix DaaS supports any cloud and any hybrid deployment. With the flexibility of the infrastructure, IT teams can configure their environments to suit your business needs.
Leveraging the cloud reduces hardware costs and the maintenance costs of a physical space (such as heating and cooling). If you already have an on-premises investment, you can dynamically leverage Citrix DaaS cloud resources in tandem with the resources you already have on-premises. Additionally, with a subscription model, monthly costs are more predictable and flexible in relation to the number of users you have.
