Solution Brief

SMBs Gain Cost-effective Anytime/Anywhere Computing

DaaS Deployment (Desktop-as-a-Service)

What you'll need
With DaaS, small retailers gain:
  • An immediate return on investment & lower TCO than traditional VDI or desktop PCs
  • Predictable monthly costs, typically paying only for what is used
  • Simplified management, with no need to add IT staff
  • Rapid, cost-effective scaling, ideal for startups and growing businesses
  • Complete device and location independence, for enhanced worker mobility, collaboration, employee satisfaction and recruiting appeal
  • Reduced risk and cost-effective disaster recovery, with no locally stored data and cloud back-up

Supporting today’s mobile workforce poses unique challenges for small businesses, which often must contend with limited budgets and IT knowledge. While virtualized desktops (VDI) deliver greater flexibility, enhanced security, and reduced computing costs compared to the traditional desktop model, the complexity, and implementation costs are prohibitively high for many smaller businesses.


Cloud-hosted desktops, or Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), offers a less costly and easier-to-manage means of achieving the benefits of VDI – making anywhere/anytime computing achievable for nearly any sized business. With DaaS, businesses purchase VDI back-end services from a third-party provider on a subscription basis, including data storage, backup, security, and upgrades. Virtual desktops are delivered to any device via the Internet, providing the benefits of VDI, along with deployment at a fraction of the IT resources, time and cost required for traditional VDI.

The value, efficiency, and reliability of DaaS can be further enhanced by the use of endpoint clients purpose-built to support desktop virtualization, such as ViewSonic’s discrete thin and zero clients, integrated thin and zero client displays, and smart display clients, which have been optimized for faster performance, lower power consumption, and longer product lifespan.
