Adapt and Desktone partnership brings secure Desktops as a Service to Adapt’s UK customers.
Adapt will deploy Desktone’s DaaS software solution within the secure Adapt cloud, with the aim of providing affordable, virtual desktops to any number of static or mobile devices. Adapt’s DaaS offering will be available to customers via OPEX based monthly subscription pricing.
DaaS will be delivered through Adapt’s real-time management portal (aMP) and via its Virtual Data Centre (eVDC) platform. By providing this service as a cloud-based solution, Adapt customers eliminate having to design, build and support their own platform. It can also help to reduce IT management and implementation costs.
Kevin Linsell, head of service development at Adapt, explained: "By integrating DaaS with our highly secure eVDC cloud platform, users can quickly take advantage of the scale and cost efficiencies synonymous with cloud computing while benefitting from the security and efficiency of VDI. We evaluated a number of desktop virtualization vendors, but Desktone’s was the only technology that provided the multi-tenancy and grid-based architecture required for a competitively priced DaaS service".
Organisations using Adapt’s new DaaS service can roll out virtual desktops to employees, whether they are based centrally, spread across regional offices or connected through their mobile devices, to meet the changing needs of the business.
Simon Fisk, sales and marketing director at Adapt, added: "We’re in the business of delivering high quality, secure cloud-based services and solutions to our customers. Desktone perfectly meets our enterprise-class criteria for delivering cloud-based solutions."
