Looking into hosted desktop services for private data centres? You’ve come to the right place.
Atlas Cloud have offered DaaS within private data centres for over ten years.
Desktop-as-a-Service (or DaaS) is a term used to describe a fully managed virtual desktop service, where a company like Atlas Cloud provides the service on behalf of another organisation.
A virtual desktop (or VDI) is a Windows desktop with a difference; rather than being stored on the device, like standard desktops, virtual desktops are stored in a separate data centre. Devices access the desktop virtually over the internet, which gives numerous flexibility and compliance-related benefits.
Using the term Private Cloud alongside DaaS simple states more information about the data centre used for the virtual desktops in question. A Private Cloud is a privately-operated data centre and a Public Cloud is a self-service data centre facility available to the public. Private Cloud’s offer physical location-related benefits and Public Cloud’s offer scalability and security-related benefits.
Atlas Cloud’s award-winning hosted desktop solutions have Citrix at their heart.
The market leader in virtualisation, Citrix’s technology is a must for DaaS.
Using Citrix’s Virtual Apps and Desktops technology gives a high-definition user experience, ability to access from touch-screen devices and uses far less bandwidth than rival solutions.
We add NVIDIA’s Hosted GPU technology to DaaS solutions with high graphics requirements. It can make even the most intensive of applications run virtually with no lag whatsoever.
We have an established, direct relationship with NVIDIA and are proud to call ourselves one of their preferred partners for virtualisation.
Atlas Cloud have offered private cloud hosted desktop services for over a decade and is committed to the solution for the long-term.
That said, we have recently made our Public Cloud Desktop-as-a-Service solution our preferred desktop solution due to the scaling and security benefits of Microsoft’s Azure public cloud.

For over ten years, we’ve specialised in the provision of Virtual Desktop technologies as Desktop-as-a-Service.
Over that time, we’ve developed close relationships with key vendors like Microsoft and Citrix and have seen our DaaS solutions win multiple high-profile awards.
We’ve been audited to high standards for previous high-compliance customer requirements.
Combining industry-standard Cyber Essentials and ISO 27001 accreditations with less-common BS 10012, which assesses adherence to GDPR requirements, you can be confident Atlas Cloud handles personal information with secure processes.
Our private data centres are tier three aligned, although officially only accredited to tier-two status. that makes them of the highest standards in the private data centre world for security, compliance and performance.
As part of our proactive approach to security and service, we regularly arrange for external third-parties to attempt to find vulnerabilities in our systems. If anything’s found, we look to fix them quickly.
