SmartCLOUD™ DaaS | Cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service Solution

SmartCLOUD™ DaaS, a cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) Solution runs on CITIC Telecom CPC’s world-class infrastructure to empower your mobile workforce with low TCO, high security, and maximum flexible features.

Cost-effective Cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service (Daas) Solution

DaaS stands for Desktop-as-a-Service, so it is a kind of virtual computing. DaaS solution provides employees with cloud-based workspaces. The technology makes use of the physical terminal to communicate with the workspace hosted by the cloud provider of the company like a laptop, tablet, or a Personal computer.

DaaS Solution helps mitigate the cost, time, and potential legal consequences when an employee forgets a computer because the data and the actual desktop are elsewhere. Using the DaaS platform implies secure access to all software and data from the company's infrastructure. In a DaaS Solution, you cannot store any sensitive information is on a local computer.

How it works

Desktop-as–a-Service (DaaS) is a useful approach that can provide businesses with greater flexibility, simpler management and cost savings. Is it surprising that businesses continue to look for ways to reduce the need for IT to manage fleets of complicated, component-lade PCs when there are means to offload and consolidate most of their maintenance and expenditure? Standard desktop infrastructure, although not out of the context, is alarmingly becoming less attractive to environments where local processing is not required. Virtualization has become the new opening, and in this domain, Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution is gaining ground.

DaaS Solution offers a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) that is hosted by an outsourced cloud service provider and is usually based on a monthly subscription fee module. DaaS uses a multi-tenancy structure which suggests that many clients or tenants get support from a single instance of an application. The service provider is responsible for controlling the cloud and the associated infrastructure. The level of service differs based on clients' needs.

The outcome of this technology is that from almost any device, users can access their data and applications, anywhere across the globe. It also produces improved data security, better migration of platforms, upgraded disaster recovery, and new provision of desktops in seconds rather than long hours. DaaS solution also has the opportunity for many organizations to help lessen compliance issues and cater to cost reductions.

Daas vs. VDI: a comparison

DaaS is a VDI, but it adopts cloud hosting. An enterprise uses VDI to install virtual desktops from its own on-site data centers. It is the responsibility of in-house IT management group to activate virtual desktops as well as to buy, maintain and upgrade the desired infrastructure.

DaaS is primarily the same thing, but it works on a cloud-based infrastructure. There is no need for organizations that subscribe to a DaaS pay to manage their hardware.

Benefits of DaaS Solution

One of the most crucial elements of a DaaS strategy is to find a provider that offers a real price for use without hidden cost. Besides, when planning a budget, resource allocation can be difficult, so it is necessary to consider the scalability and penalties of the cloud provider that offers the service.

The benefits, in a nutshell, are as follows:

Complete cost reduction

Effortless platform migration

Disaster recovery

Minimal complication

Enhanced performance

Uninterrupted network


Data security


As happens with other cloud services, DaaS is a tempting choice for organizations that either move away from running their infrastructure in an on-site data center or focus on any different location. Customers can also benefit from DaaS solution by adopting a network or internet connection to access corporate data and applications through a desktop experience on a broad range of corporate devices.

CITIC Telecom CPC is an ICT solutions provider that provides managed services, technical consultations as well as infrastructure management such as virtualization, cloud and managed Internet data centers.

Yet cost and efficiency pressure mean tight IT budgets and challenging performance targets, while fast-paced and constantly evolving business needs demand reliable infrastructure, rapid deployment, temporary contractors, and round-the-clock global support. Virtual Desktops solve many of these challenges, but operating self-owned equipment is costly. The perfect solution is SmartCLOUD™ DaaS, a cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service offering that runs on CITIC Telecom CPC’s world-class infrastructure to empower your mobile workforce with low TCO, high security, and maximum flexible features.
