Looking for what’s new and game changing in desktop virtualization at VMworld 2012? Well, in our somewhat biased, but honest opinion, we think it’s desktop as a service (DaaS) with PCoIP®. Desktone’s virtual desktop platform now supports PCoIP display protocol via the VMware View Agent technology. We’re excited to offer a flexible DaaS solution to service providers with a range of display protocol options that can meet a variety of end user needs.
IT departments are straining under the endless demands from end users to support a multitude of devices and diverse desktop capabilities requirements even within the same organization. IT pros expect cloud-hosted desktops to deliver the performance equivalent to traditional PCs on any device at a lower price point. Anything short of this would be failing to meet with the high level of experience that end users have come to expect from their desktops. However, these demands come at tremendous cost, time and expense to IT. Or they did, until now.
Service providers like Desktone’s partner Dell are now using Desktone’s enhanced DaaS Platform to deliver various types of cost-effective, full-featured hosted virtual desktops to any device. Earlier this year Dell launched the Desktop Virtualization Solutions (DVS) Simplified DaaS – powered by Desktone’s secure multi-tenant virtual desktop platform – to deliver full-featured cloud-hosted desktops, and now they’re offering a premier end user experience option with their hosted virtual desktops featuring the PCoIP display protocol to accommodate specific customer needs
Dell’s DVS Simplified DaaS offers the option to connect to virtual desktops via PCoIP, a feature of VMware View. Remote users can now have an exceptional experience with high definition (HD) multimedia including high resolution, full frame rate 3D graphics and HD audio, multiple large displays, and full USB peripheral connectivity. DVS Simplified DaaS now offers two protocol and user experience options to connect to virtual desktops – PCoIP and Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
Companies of all sizes are beginning to recognize DaaS as a better way to quickly deploy virtual desktops to address a variety of business initiatives, including reducing desktops management costs for mobile workforces and task workers. The Desktone virtual desktop platform enables service providers to deliver their customers customized virtual desktop environments featuring various types of desktops and capabilities.
Stop by Desktone’s booth #2330 to see a demo of DaaS with PCoIP or the Dell Wyse booth #1524. At the very least, if you’re not impressed with our new offering, you could win an iPad, so go ahead, drop in and ask for a demo of the coolest new offering in desktop virtualization at VMworld 2012.
