Taken from Ozan Talu's Introducing Dell Desktop as a Service (DaaS) Made Easier - With a Complete, Flexibile Cloud-Based Service on Inside Enterprise IT

Today’s business climate often demands that companies be nimble, geographically dispersed and mobile in order to manage competitive pressures and grow. Desktop virtualization offers advantages when it comes to security, mobility and scalability, and there are even more benefits to be had if you outsource your Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and turn to a Desktop as a Service (DaaS) model. DaaS frees IT from VDI build-out and maintenance tasks and enables them to reinvest resources into value-added priorities because VDI maintenance, infrastructure, applications and licensing are managed by Dell.

However, it’s understandable why, despite the benefits, even the most intrepid IT leaders of small and medium businesses might shy away from desktop virtualization and DaaS. They might assume that the cost will be outside their budget, and that the implications of deploying, securing, licensing and managing a virtual desktop system will be complex and daunting. Consequently, organizations stick to legacy systems which are familiar but may not be optimal for their growing workforce and dynamic business models, potentially compromising their competitive edge.  

The truth is that desktop virtualization doesn't need to be complicated or costly, and it certainly doesn't need to be out of reach for small and mid-size companies. With our commitment to empowering our customers through the absolute best technology and services in mind, Dell is introducing Dell Desktop as a Service Made Easier, an addition to its existing Dell DVS Simplified DaaS. This new multi-faceted DaaS offers a simple, customizable and cost-effective way for organizations to deploy and manage complete desktop virtualization systems by offering complete, end-to-end DaaS “bundles” starting at $50 per month per user* for 50 seats including standard desktops with PCoIP.  It also includes the following additional optional elements:

  • 50 Microsoft Windows VDA licenses  and Server Client Access Licenses
  • 50 Dell Wyse D50D thin clients
  • Microsoft Office software suite
  • Cloud-based management and services

Think of it as end-to-end desktop virtualization your way. You can quickly and easily configure, purchase and deliver virtual desktops to your company with no hidden costs, minimal CAPEX, and no additional hardware or software to buy or configure – ever. The solution is also built to last and scale.

 Benefits of Dell DaaS Made Easier include:

  • Cost Effective:  With leasing made available by Dell Financial Services** (DFS) or Dell Business Creditê, qualified customers can acquire the thin clients and licenses necessary to set up any Dell DaaS solution.
  • Secure: Control access to data and applications through a secure desktop virtualization solution.
  • Easy: No complicated architectures. Easy, simple deployment that works together seamlessly; licensing complexities can be eliminated. 
  • Scalable: Going from 50 users to hundreds is easy. Just add DaaS desktops and Dell Wyse or your own endpoints as they are needed.
  • Maintenance Free: Future Dell innovation updates automatically included with subscription price.

We believe that Dell is the only company in the world that can provide an entire DaaS program this comprehensive. Starting with the deployment itself, Dell can offer DaaS sourced entirely by one company from cloud-based management, to Microsoft licenses, to the end user devices. This also means you get a single point of service for the entire DaaS system, not to mention that Dell also has the financial structure to offer a simple and affordable monthly price.
