VMware presents first hybrid desktop-as-a-service (DaaS)


NEW DELHI: VMware has debuted a new-fangled cloud-based desktop service that affords cost-effective enterprise-class virtual desktops running on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service.

The service provides the industry’s first hybrid Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution that from its quarter gives customers the ability to blend public cloud desktops and on-premise VMware Horizon View private cloud desktops for a seamless end-user involvement.

Just by following a few simple steps, it can provision, array and manage high quality, full Windows desktops to end-users that in turn can be accessed from laptops, desktops, zero/thin clients, Chromebooks, tablets (Apple iOS, Google Android) or for that matter mobile devices.

“Having pioneered the market for DaaS back in 2007, VMware continues to lead by introducing industry-first capabilities and technology innovations to deliver a best-in-class service and solution to our customers,” alleged Sumit Dhawan, VP and GM, desktop products, End-User Computing, VMware.

Supplementing that – “Our experience working with customers deploying DaaS the last several years have shown that the majority prefers a blended environment with both on-premise and cloud desktops. However, very few solutions in the market can deliver a seamless end-user experience across multiple clouds like VMware Horizon DaaS.”

Not like other DaaS offerings that only goes on to offer Windows server or Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments, VMware Horizon DaaS supports both types of desktops in addition to full Windows Client Desktops – all at a reasonably charged price point.

The service delivers an adaptive user experience across devices, locations, and media for consistent quality and exceptional user experience. It simplifies the offerings of high quality desktops and applications as a cloud service so that clienteles can quickly bring up desktops from the cloud for any number of end-users in just a few clicks.
