Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS): A Smart Move for SMBs Looking to Control Costs

With high interest rates and persistent inflation, the economic outlook remains uncertain. In this volatile climate, small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) must take steps to control costs and prioritize investments for maximum impact. When it comes to optimizing your IT budget, it’s critical to explore technology investments that increase operational efficiency, bolster security, and empower employees while unlocking opportunities for significant cost savings.

Infinitely Virtual (IV) offers a Desktop-as a-Service (DaaS) solution that brings myriad cost-saving advantages to SMBs. IV DaaS is a cloud hosting service that delivers virtual desktops to your end-users via the Internet, keeping them productive, secure, and connected no matter where they’re working, what device they’re using, or what network they’re on. These virtual desktops, complete with operating systems, applications, and business file access, run in an enterprise-ready cloud environment hosted and managed by IV, so you can focus on serving customers and growing your business instead of dealing with IT hassles.

Because IV DaaS delivers virtual access to applications, files, email and more — all on one screen — within a native Windows environment, your end-users enjoy a seamless work experience from any location. Studies show that flexibility drives employee engagement, helping you cut down on costly turnover.

Beyond supporting employee retention, IV DaaS offers other opportunities for savings, starting with the elimination of upfront hardware purchases. Leveraging IV’s best-in-class, cloud-hosted infrastructure, you can avoid high-priced investments in on-premise hardware and software. At the same time, our DaaS solution can run on devices that require far less computing power than a standard laptop or desktop machine, which leads to further cost savings.

DaaS shifts capital expenditures to operating expenses, freeing up funds to invest in growing your business. The pay-as-you-go model means you’re only playing for the computing power and storage you currently need–with the ability to scale up or down as your business requirements change. Need to add more users and processing power during your busy season? No problem. IV can add users and capacity with the push of a button — and remove them just as easily when your peak period is over. That way, you’re not wasting your limited IT budget on cloud resources you’re not using right now.

It’s also important to consider the cost savings associated with having IV manage your IT cloud infrastructure, update applications and security software, and provision new users. If you have an in-house IT manager, our DaaS solution can free them to focus on more strategic initiatives. If you don’t, IV has you covered so you don’t need to pay for IT consultants and support.

If you’re trying to optimize your budget, IV DaaS is a smart investment that can drive savings in IT and beyond. Contact us at 866-257-8455 or visit for more information.
