Desktone Partners With VMware To Deliver Desktop-as-a-Service Offering


Desktone, provider of Desktops-as-a-Service (DaaS), today announced it is partnering with VMware to deliver a new desktop-as-a-service solution.

The solution will make it easy for service providers to offer full-featured, highly cost-effective virtual desktops.

The joint VMware-Desktone roadmap includes:

- Desktone DaaS Platform: Launched more than four years ago for delivering cloud-hosted DaaS. Features such as multi-tenancy, grid architecture, role separation, and cloud economics achieved through substantial use of open source, are what make the Desktone offering attractive.

- VMware View 5 with PCoIP display protocol: Enables service providers to enhance their Desktone-powered DaaS solutions by providing an end-user experience that is comparable to that available with a physical PC.

- VMware vSphere 5 and cloud infrastructure suite: Enables service providers to leverage the industry’s leading cloud infrastructure platform providing security, reliability, high availability, reduced cost and optimal performance for cloud-hosted desktops.

- VMware vCloud technology: Enables service providers to take advantage of common orchestration and automation by integrating the Desktone Platform directly with a hypervisor.

The VMware View-based DaaS offering will be available to service providers later this year.
