Today with the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus businesses are changing the way jobs are done. While a lot of companies are shutting down across the country, other companies are struggling with ways that they can be flexible and have their employees work remotely and safely. At this point we are not likely to find an answer to COVID-19 anytime soon but business must do their jobs if the economy is to do well. Amazon, Microsoft and Twitter were the first companies to diversify their workforce with teleworking so they can safely follow social distancing at home and still continue to do their jobs. Which is why Remote Desktop-a-as-Service (DaaS) is important.
Remote Access and Telework or Remote Desktop-a-as-Service (DaaS) is not a new concept but many companies for years have tried it and, in the end, more away from it for reasons that may or may not have been founded in fact. Working in corporate America today teams are spread out all across the country with different members being in different time zones. Working collaboratively can be done with remote access and whether you are working late at night or early in the morning telework allows you to be there when you are needed and also flexible to be at home when needed there.
Because of this the changes businesses are making today are going to have long lasting effects on the workforce for many years to come. While all industries are scrambling right now, the choices they make today will be the benefit to their future employees, offering the flexibility to work remotely that the younger generation employees are craving with work/life balance (see monster article on work/life balance), and your industry is probably no different. While not every job can be done remotely a large portion of any company’s support staff can such as accounting, human resources and even the IT departments just to name a few.
Planning for these unforeseen future emergencies will require more automation and remote access for employees which will help companies in reducing the amount of people in the office to help reduce the risk of exposure during pandemics and can help companies run more effectively and respond quicker in the future. We at JAYCO Cloud Computing Solutions understand your needs and can help you make these decisions. We offer a wide range of services that can help companies respond quickly with any demand.
What Can We Do?
Remote Desktop-a-as-Service (DaaS)! Right now, if you are searching for a quick and affordable way to allow employees to have remote access and telework from home. We have Remote Desktop-a-as-Service (DaaS) which allows employees to use any computer, or tablet that is browser enabled to access an office environment desktop (i.e. Windows or Linux bases) which can be setup both safely and securely. This alleviates the burden of the employer buying computers or laptops and having their IT staff from inventorying, shipping, setting up, support and backing them all up remotely. Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) is a subscription-based service, you only pay for what you use, so you won’t have the upfront or capital expense cost of buying and shipping computers and laptops.

You can pay either monthly or hourly, just for desktops the you launch, which helps you save money when compared to traditional desktops and on-premises VDI solutions.

As with all solutions there are many factors to the speed of computing with teleworking. While Video conferencing companies are seeing a huge spike in online meetings and in some cases, they are slowing down, it will still be dependent of the speed of your home internet connection. We recommend at least 200 MPS which should allow you to video conference and use your desktop applications and work without slowdown.
There are several factors that need to be answered before we can give you the cost. Since this is a subscriptions-based service that can be paid monthly or hourly. In addition, you would need to know the configuration of the desktops you want to use. Memory, CPU Speed, Storage, and Operating System like Windows or Linux are all factors in how this is priced We can help you figure out the cost to stay within your budget once we know what your requirements are. Additionally, if you already have Windows Licenses for OS and Office you can still use them which reduces the cost of new licenses.
