Empower your Remote Workforce with a Desktop-As-A-Service Offering

As organisations all over the world transition to a remote working model, cloud services and solutions are enabling them to collaborate and be successful, making them paramount to the global economy. Without cloud technology, this sudden and unplanned shift to remote working could not happen.  

Over the span of a few weeks, millions of workers became remote workers. In the US, research from the beginning of March shared that 46% of businesses have implemented work from home initiatives since early February. 

The pandemic has given the latest version of Microsoft’s desktop-as-a-service offering unstoppable momentum. What nobody predicted was a pandemic that would have just about everyone who can work from home doing that in no time flat. It’s a change that puts DaaS in a whole new light. 

With more people than ever before working from home, and with the strong possibility that they will do so for years to come, the time for DaaS has arrived. Ready or not, we’re on our way to the Windows Virtual Desktop. 

The best virtual Windows and Office experience, delivered on Azure 

Windows Virtual Desktop is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualisation service which is run in the Azure cloud.  

Leveraging the power of Microsoft Azure, Windows Virtual Desktop is an instanced virtual machine hosting a desktop and app virtualisation service running on the cloud. Windows Virtual Desktop delivers a virtual desktop experience and remote apps to any device. Depending on how it is configured, the platform can bring together Microsoft 365 and Azure to provide users with a multi-session Windows 10 experience, which includes scaling and reduced IT costs. 

Spanish Point is a leading Irish Microsoft Partner that provides Windows Virtual Desktop. It is currently the only virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) which can deliver simplified management, multi-session Windows 10, optimizations for Office 365 ProPlus, and support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments. 

Spanish Point provide the only multi-session Windows 10 desktop virtualised in the cloud that’s highly scalable, always up to date, and available on any device. This is suited for IT managers, CTOs etc that are technically minded who want to deploy and scale through the Azure Platform with Windows desktops and apps and get built in security and compliance features. 

With Windows Virtual Desktop, you can set up a scalable and flexible environment in your Azure subscription without having to run any additional gateway servers. You can also publish as many host pools as you need to accommodate your diverse workloads. 

Your data will always be secure as Microsoft employ more than 3,500 security experts completely dedicated to your data security and privacy. Azure also has more compliance certificates than any other cloud provider. 

Digital workspaces are rapidly replacing physical desktops and laptops in many work environments. These workspaces may be delivered by virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) running in your data center, but companies of all sizes are increasingly turning to desktop as a service (DaaS) solution to satisfy digital workspace needs. 

Both Microsoft and cloud partners such as Spanish Point Technologies are working to ensure that organisations continue to work effectively. This will allow you to continue providing value to your customers as they work from home.
