Frankly, everywhere The VAR Guy turns he's hearing about "desktop virtualization" and "something as a service" ... as in...
- Software as a Service
- Storage as a Service
- Security as a Service
- Video as a Service
"Desktops as a service (DaaS) specifically describes an outsourced subscription service for server-hosted desktops powered by the Desktone Virtual-D Platform[TM] and delivered by Desktone-certified service provider partners."Do Desktone and DaaS work as advertised? The VAR Guy has no idea. But the company's trademarks sound pretty darn compelling as buzz continues to build for cloud and SaaS systems tied to desktop virtulization. A recent case in point: Certeon today announced a desktop virtualization push that involves managed service providers and mentions Desktone by name.
