Out with the old, in with the new

Here's why companies of every size and industry are leaving their existing DaaS management vendor for Nerdio Manager for Enterprise

Nerdio offers the only DaaS management solution available on the market that enhances native Azure Virtual Desktop & Windows 365 rather than replace it with proprietary technologies. Nerdio Manager is built from the ground-up as a true cloud product unlike older VDI technologies that were created before the public cloud existed!
