It is the outsourcing of a virtual desktop infrastructure to a third party service provider.
The service provider has a multi-tenancy architecture and manages the back-end responsibilities of data storage, backup, security and upgrades.It is also called as Desktop as a service (DaaS).Typically, DaaS services are purchased on a subscription basis. Customers can pay less than $20 per user per month for a nonpersistent hosted virtual desktop; the end user's personal data is copied to and from the virtual desktop during logon/logoff and access to the desktop is device, location and network independent.
