"Under the covers, the Desktone DaaS provides each user a virtual desktop (customers provide their Windows 7 license key) that is accessible from any device, anywhere. The DaaS is can be configurable with OS, RAM, CPU, disk space, etc. to meet end users’ performance requirements. Desktone Cloud implementation, virtual desktops can be up and running in days.
IT admins can manage Desktone’s virtual desktops via one single, web-based UI. 'Desktops in the Desktone Cloud look and act as part of the corporate IT environment, even though they are running at a secure remote data center,' according to Desktone supporting documents. 'This is because the desktops are connected to the corporate IT environment through a private network connection, and access to the desktops is based upon the existing Active Directory.' The approach means that it is easy to add, remove or modify desktops as needed, from any location with a browser.
To promote mobility, end users can access the Desktone Cloud from an iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android-based tablets and smartphones. They can also use thin clients or extend the life of their current PCs for cloud access. Desktone’s mobile client makes this end user access seamless, the company added."
