Cisco UCS provides the infrastructure you need to deliver virtualized workspaces. (2:00 min)
Our Desktop Virtualization Solutions offer choice and flexibility. Choose an on-premises or cloud-based solution, or both. Whether you run desktop virtualization in house or use desktops as a service, we can help you get better performance. Plus, you can simplify operations, improve security, support new devices, and reduce the costs of computing.
Desktop and application virtualization help to reduce desktop IT costs, improve security, increase control, and expand connectivity. With desktop virtualization, desktops are hosted in your data center and can be accessed from any device, anywhere. This allows you to support new business models and improve both IT operations and user satisfaction.
Desktop as a service (DaaS) provides the same benefits as on-premises desktop virtualization, including reduced desktop IT costs, improved security, increased control, and expanded connectivity. However, services are provided from an offsite cloud-based data center. DaaS is an economical, pay-per-user approach that provides desktops and reduces the day-to-day IT responsibilities for end-user computing.
