What Is A Cloud-Hosted Desktop?

A hosted desktop is a virtual machine hosting a remote instance of a local/physical desktop and its peripherals. When they are hosted on a cloud instead of an on-premises data center, it is called a Cloud-hosted Desktop. Cloud-hosted desktops are often delivered “As a Service” and referred to as Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS).
