Ever-increasing proliferation of the endpoint devices together with rising cloud as well as consumerization of IT resulted in surging demand for desktop-as-a-service. HCI (Hyper Converged Infrastructures) is one of the major trend in desktop-as-a-service market gaining significant traction since the recent past. Technological innovations such as hosting graphics heavy tasks and operating system diversity is likely to further create growth avenues for desktop-as-a-service market.
Demand and supply of persistent desktops is anticipated to increase in the forthcoming years on the back of increasing availability of effective storage solutions, which in turn positively impacts the growth of desktop-as-a-service market. Small & Medium Enterprises require high-quality IT services, however lack capitals, which in turn results in outsourcing of desktop-as-a-service. Increasing availability of the computing power with internet speeds at comparatively reasonable prices are expected to flourish operating system diversityin the near future. Increasing number of remote workforces are further driving the growth of desktop-as-a-service market.

Key players and manufacturers in desktop-as-a-service market are expected to increase their focus on offering centrally managed and flexible solutions that would cater to the emerging demands of customers. Moreover, developments in desktop-as-a-service market is likely to positively impact on enterprise security, mobility and workplace flexibility.
With more and more companies switching to cloud services, the market for software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) have evolved significantly. Following this is the next thing, desktop-as-a-service (DaaS). DaaS is a cloud based delivery model, which makes it easier for users to work from anywhere on their devices as this service is independent of their device, location and network. Furthermore, DaaS has an architecture that allows multiple users to access a single instance of a software application, in contrast to single instance architecture. This trend is being majorly followed by SMEs, who don’t want to invest a lot of money in deploying a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) in-house. Major challenges faced by this industry are provider reliability, latency, bandwidth increases and security complications.
Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) Market: Drivers and Restraints
The advantages of a virtual desktop infrastructure provided at a lower cost, and less complexity are the main attractions for DaaS. The user’s data is continuously copied from the cloud, during log on and log off. This promotes the idea of migration of the organization’s workload to the cloud. Data like enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), HR and payroll are being shifted to cloud servers. With more people shifting to mobile devices, the enterprises find it difficult to support users working on their device. The independency DaaS provides from the device, has been a driving factor for this market. Data can not only be accessed but also edited from multiple devices. High network bandwidth is required for high workload operations, this is seen as a hindering factor for this market. Moreover, as DaaS is still an evolving concept, there are some on-premises VDI features that are not available in DaaS. These features could vary from providing persistent desktops to app layering, which needs to be checked with the service provider.
