Managed Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Empower productivity with dedicated resources per user and secure, reliable access to applications from any location on any device.

Secure, Managed Desktop as a Service (DaaS)

Desktop as a Service, also known as DaaS, is a managed cloud solution to provide employees with remote desktop access to applications. Desktop as a Service is a Performive Cloud environment powered by VMware and managed by certified experts that delivers a consistent and excellent user experience across all devices and platforms. Each user has secure, remote access to their desktop image with its own dedicated compute resources to reliably power business-critical applications. Additional security, business continuity, and managed services can be layered onto any DaaS solution to meet custom requirements.

Enable Productivity with Managed DaaS

What is the Difference between Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) & Desktop as a Service (DaaS)?

To many, VDI as a term is interchangeable with Desktop as a Service (DaaS). However, Gartner defines VDI as an On-Prem solution to deliver remote workspaces, while Desktop as a Service is a secure, cloud solution. Performive can support both services, depending on your security concerns and industry compliance best practices. Whatever the case, Performive can ensure your company has a productive remote workforce.

Why Choose Performive Managed Desktop as a Service?

Desktop as a Service provides agility, more predictable costs, time savings and improved security options to managing device access for employees.

Enable Workforce Flexibility

With Performive DaaS, you have the flexibility to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) while knowing that security concerns have already been addressed. Workspaces can be issued in a few clicks and accessed on any device, platform, and location. No more worrying about supply chain shortages and end-of-life equipment; instead, enable faster employee onboarding and reduced costs for your organization.

Bolster Security Stance

Internal organization security policies can be hard to enforce. With a Managed Desktop as a Service Solution, security is intrinsic throughout the architecture – and additional security features can be built in.

Increase Employee Productivity

By building a customized workspace image with the Performive engineers, every employee will get the same, consistent access to your team’s mission-critical applications in their Desktop as a Service solution. There is less time troubleshooting platform specific or device specific access for employees, while your IT Team benefits from saving the time to set up each device individually. Additionally, Performive’s Network Mesh powerfully connects regions for optimized data transfer and application processing speeds.

Predictable Costs

The Performive DaaS Solution bundles security, business continuity, network, and virtual desktop for an all-inclusive solution delivering a transparent, predictable cost as you grow. Allowing you to eliminate the need to continue investing in end-user compute devices and environments.

Fully Supported with Access to Experts

As a Performive DaaS customer you have access to our 24x7x365, anywhere in the world, technical support staff to help you when an issue arises. And with our new Devoted Engineering Service, you will have access to highly trained and certified cloud and VMware Engineers On-Demand.
