Deploying Desktop as a Service will help your organization thrive but only if you select the right host. In order to create a multi-cloud environment, you have to examine cloud offerings along with the management needs of your cloud infrastructure so that your DaaS solution can be deployed quickly and effortlessly.
The first step in this process is preparation, as this is vital for virtual desktop service. Configuration is not always easy, but these steps will pay off in the end, so start by deploying a directory, which will be used for identity and access management for remote sessions and administration. You then have to look at the different options to connect with Virtual Desktop and have to select administrators, users, and system accounts to manage services. Assigning roles and licenses is another important step, so don’t forget to configure the different roles like user admin.
The second step is deployment, which would require you to configure a series of resources like workspaces and application groups, and you need to then configure new or register virtual machines on each host pool. You must also register application groups to workspaces and assign the app groups to the users.
Optimization will follow, so once you have prepped and deployed virtual desktops, you then have to focus on providing the best experience for your users. Creating a storage account, assigning roles to access storage data, enabling authentication, and creating a file share to store user profile virtual disks will be part of this step, and you also have to consider whether you are migrating from an on-premises Remote Desktop architecture and if you are using a file server for shared files. The automation of the scaling of virtual machine resources in your host pool is an aspect that will have to be handled carefully during this process.
Understanding the architecture and security capabilities is a must for a quick and effortless DaaS deployment, as is an understanding of shared responsibilities. As an administrator, you will be able to manage user profile management, networking policies, user host access, and scaling policies for session host pools. You will also be able to handle identity and access capabilities.
There are a number of requirements and steps when it comes to the preparation and deployment of a DaaS solution, all of which are specific. Not only is this a complex and detailed job, but it’s also very time-consuming, so it’s best to turn to experts for help.
