Dell® to deliver Desktop-as-a-Service
Dell has collaborated with a younger and smaller company named Desktone to become a direct supplier of virtual desktops. Dell will talk about its ability to deliver virtual desktops in partnership with VMware and Citrix Systems at Citrix Systems’ Synergy user group conference in San Francisco this week.
Desktone offers virtual desktops through a cloud-based, desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) platform, and will work with both Citrix and VMware virtual machines. As such, it is “hypervisor agnostic,” said Desktone CEO Peter McKay in an interview. According to Dell, the Desktone-based service of Dell named Dell Simplified DaaS that was available to a handful of customers for a month is now available to all.
Dell will take the help of Desktone’s multi-tenant platform, Desktone Cloud, and use it for provisioning end user desktops for customers from its own data centers. By adopting Desktone as a partner and offering Desktone Cloud, Dell is taking its first step away from supplying physical end user machines, toward directly supplying virtual end user desktops, or desktop services to run on different devices, from its data centers.
