    Managed DaaS

    Over the past decade there has been a lot of changes on how to deliver virtual apps and desktops to end users. From MetaFrame to XenApp to Virtual Apps and Desktops service, Citrix has provided a secure way of delivering remote solutions to end users. So what is managed DaaS? How does this differ from Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service? Citrix managed DaaS provides you with a quick and easy way to deliver virtual desktops to your end users that is fully managed by Citrix. This means that you can deploy virtual apps and desktops in minutes even if you don’t have your own cloud tenant.

We discuss the differences between on prem solutions, Citrix DaaS, and managed DaaS. We talk about when you should each and the features and functionalities that Managed DaaS has.
