DaaS and Cloud Computing are absolutely related. I always use the following definition for Cloud. 1) Its not here. 2) Its as a service. 3) Its outsourcing. DaaS is all 3 of these things. The core technology runs in a supplier’s data center…it no longer runs on hardware down the hall in a closet. Its also provided as a subscription-based, as-a-service model, one monthly price per user…buy what you need. And lastly, the day-to-day management and break-fix tasks of maintaining desktops is now provided by the supplier. DaaS solves huge problems for customers. We’re seeing lots of traction with DaaS.
