“Delivering DaaS on a large scale requires a fully automated, self-service solution that can scale in a cost-effective way,“ said Vittorio Viarengo, vice president of end-user computing at VMware. “VMware View 5 in combination with the Desktone DaaS Platform will offer service providers the best of both worlds, a leading DaaS platform with the superior end-user experience offered by VMware View.“
The joint VMware-Desktone roadmap includes solutions such as Dekstone DaaS Platform, VMware View 5 with PCoIP display protocol, VMware vShpere5 and cloud infrastructure suite and VMware vCloud technology.
Desktone will demonstrate a sneak preview of the new offering at VMworld 2011 Europe in Copenhagen later this week. The VMware View-based DaaS offering will be available to service providers later this year.
