Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Cloud Services

As mobility becomes the standard for modern business, companies are adapting to the unique demands of a mobile work force. The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) movement has many productivity benefits, but it also creates major headaches for IT professionals—particularly in updating applications and ensuring data security.

Managed through Horizon DaaS by VMware, FPA’s DaaS solution simplifies the deployment and management of a secure, virtual desktop environment. Utilizing DaaS, we only focus on maintaining a single environment instead of multiple individual workstations. Employees and associates can access company data and applications through the virtual desktop, remotely and securely. This evolution in addressing the distribution of computing resources is leading organizations more and more to adopt cloud-based DaaS solutions.

"I would like to give special recognition (or shout out) to Jason & Ron for all the planning, guidance, and hard work during the migration of our on-site email server to Office 365 cloud email. We had been using our in house SBS Exchange server for ten plus years (which was an outdated Exchange 2008 software), and I was very nervous about moving to the cloud, not to mention all the headaches it would create for our corporate office and eight remote offices during the migration. But to my surprise, migrating 40 plus email accounts and installing Office 365 on 28 computers was completed within several hours with minimal issues that were quickly resolved and my employees could resume their normal business day. Thank you Jason & Ron and all the FPA team members who helped us move efficiently to Office 365 and cloud email server."

The popularity of DaaS is growing primarily because of its ability to make IT providers faster and more efficient.

Instead of supporting and maintaining desktops on a 1:1 basis, you can update the base desktop image using a 1:many approach. This allows you to onboard new users faster and support existing desktops more efficiently, with application updates and fixes. DaaS is also an attractive security option because data and applications reside in the cloud rather than on end-user devices, which can be easy targets due to insufficient security tools or practices.

Finally, because every user’s environment is virtual, desktop images are automatically synced and always available. DaaS simplifies desktop management so that you can manage more with less.
