Desktone Bows Service

CHELMSFORD, Mass. -- Desktone, Inc., provider of the first solution that enables desktops as a service (DaaS), today announced the Desktone Virtual-D Platform, which is designed specifically to enable service providers to offer hosted, subscription-based virtual desktops.

Desktones solution helps enterprises quickly realize the full benefits of centralized virtual desktops without having to build and deploy the infrastructure internally. It dramatically reduces desktop TCO, transforming computing costs from fixed CAPEX to variable OPEX. Service providers benefit from optimizing use of their data center assets while delivering a new highly scalable, value-added service to customers.

“There’s a tremendous amount of industry interest in virtual desktop computing. It can reduce desktop costs, improve manageability and enhance security. However, because it is very difficult for enterprises to implement, wide-spread adoption has been slow,” said Harry Ruda, CEO, Desktone. “Desktone eliminates the complexity and speeds the on-ramp to virtual desktop computing by transforming desktops into a cost-effective, highly scalable subscription service. We’re extremely excited about the opportunities this affords enterprises and service providers.”
