DaaS

FAQs

Q: What is The DaaS?

A: DaaS: a virtual workspace that provides users (admins, IT professionals and employees) with access to all of their applications, files and data on nearly any internet-enabled ‘smart’ device. Each individual is provided with dedicated CPU or CPUs and memory allowing them to work exactly as they would with a traditional laptop or desktop, often with improved performance.
The solution is powered by VMWare View and Microsoft HyperV and is deployed on Super Micro System Servers and Cisco hardware as a completely hosted Virtual Infrastructure solution.
