The Desktone Platform is the only-purpose built offering for providing desktops in the cloud. It is designed to deliver the flexibility, savings and scalability that service providers and enterprises require.
The new offering has multi-tenancy capabilities that make it easy for service providers to scale by creating, managing and monitoring multiple customers on the same shared infrastructure.
Liquidware Labs and Desktone are integrating ProfileUnity with the Desktone Platform to make cloud computing a flexible and affordable option for desktop environments.
