In 2013 Desktone was acquired by VMWare.
Desktone provides the industry's only multi-tenant desktop virtualization platform for delivering desktops and applications as a cloud service, enabling the deployment of Windows desktops and applications from a private, public or hybrid cloud to any end user device. Desktone enables IT service providers to rapidly provision desktops and applications to users connected on any device, anywhere, without the upfront costs and complexity of traditional desktop virtualization – transforming desktops from a CAPEX to OPEX item.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives, mobility and the end of Windows XP are driving organizations to reevaluate their end user computing strategies. Traditional virtual desktop and application offerings can be complicated and expensive solutions to these new challenges. Desktone simplifies IT management by delivering desktops and apps from the cloud, avoiding the costs and complexities of managing on-site infrastructure. End users can directly access Windows apps from any device they choose – including tablets, smartphones, laptops and PCs – and IT professionals can manage multiple desktop models and applications from a single management console.
Leading service providers, such as Dell, Fujitsu, NEC, Time Warner Cable, Dimension Data and Logicalis, have selected Desktone's Platform to offer desktops and apps as a cloud service. Desktone's unique leading cloud features include: multi-tenancy, massive scalability from a grid architecture, multi-location management, and the lowest cost model in the industry through use of open source infrastructure. Founded in 2007, Desktone is headquartered in Boston, MA.
