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.
