See why Desktone’s is the preferred desktop virtualization platform for delivering DaaS. Desktone will discuss how DaaS’ unique requirements—including massive scalability, resiliency and the ability to securely handle multiple geographies and tenants—can’t be met by porting traditional virtual desktop technologies to the cloud. Desktone’s DaaS technology was built from the ground up for cloud delivery and Service Providers. Unlike other approaches, Desktone employs true multi-tenancy, which enables superior security. Desktone’s multi-tenancy delivers a shared, unified platform for all end-customers, with dedicated desktops and completely secure separation across five critical levels: meta-data, storage, networking, directory services and compute. The Desktone Platform supports all versions of desktop models from full Windows VDI to shared RDS sessions and application delivery from one unified console.
