Company signs on Desktone to offer cost-effective virtual desktops as a cloud service

Dimension Data has announced a global partnership with Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) vendor Desktone Inc to offer cost-effective virtual desktops as a cloud service.

The agreement extends to New Zealand where Dimension Data will leverage the Desktone Virtual Desktop platform to help companies cope with rapid adoption of mobile computing and other enterprise initiatives.

“Organisations are increasingly embracing cloud computing for its flexibility, efficiency and ease of use,” says Leigh Jackson, technology manager for Dimension Data New Zealand. “At Dimension Data we’ve been aggressively building our portfolio of cloud services with solutions like Desktone's multi-tenant virtual desktop platform that help customers improve performance and lower IT costs.”

By leveraging a local cloud, Dimension Data says it can allow organisations to easily provision, deploy and scale desktops on demand without the expense and complexity of building and maintaining on-premise infrastructure.

“DaaS is outpacing onsite enterprise VDI as the simple and affordable solution to market demands for device independence and controllable IT costs,” says Peter McKay, CEO of Desktone. “With cloud-hosted virtual desktops, Dimension Data can deliver complete virtual desktops in a truly scalable cloud environment that’s easy to manage, without worrying about hardware or software costs.”
