NaviSite Introduces Cloud-Based Desktop-as-a-Service

DaaS leverages the scale, simplicity and economics of the NaviCloud

"Cloud is changing the way enterprises view the corporate desktop," said  Denis Martin, Executive Vice President and CTO at NaviSite introduced an enterprise-class, cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Services (DaaS) offering that enables IT organizations to deliver virtual desktop services to local and remote users from the cloud.

"DaaS leverages the scale, simplicity and economics of the NaviCloud to deploy desktops across the enterprise," Martin continued, adding:

"Enterprises can now rapidly provision a secure virtual desktop for users that can be accessed on any device, anywhere without the upfront costs and complexity of traditional desktops while adhering to corporate security and compliance policies. Additionally, most companies rarely have a disaster recovery plan for data maintained on traditional desktop solutions, but cloud-based DaaS offers centralised, built-in business continuity and disaster recovery for the desktop at no additional cost."

NaviSite's DaaS offering, powered by the NaviCloud platform and Desktone, a desktop-as-a-service pioneer, provides IT departments the ability to add or remove desktops quickly and securely while avoiding the costs associated with frequent technology change. The new offering also enables organizations to scale based on the immediate needs of their business without being locked into a technology decision as their business evolves.

DaaS significantly reduces desktop capex and opex costs, centralizes and streamlines desktop deployment, and enables a workforce to be more mobile and efficient while increasing security and control necessary for an enterprise environment.

"DaaS takes the cost and complexity out of managing virtual desktops," said Peter McKay, Chief Executive Officer, Desktone. "We're extremely pleased that NaviSite, such a prominent cloud infrastructure provider, chose Desktone to deliver cloud-hosted desktops."
