Desktops in the Cloud – VDI Simplified

Features Leading Industry Analyst Firm Discussing Best Way to Move Desktops to the Cloud

Desktone, Inc., the pioneer of cloud-hosted Desktops as a Service, today announced that it is hosting a new webinar featuring Ian Song, Senior Analyst for IDC’s Enterprise Virtualization Software. Taking place May 19, 2011 at 2:00pm ET, the webinar—“Desktops in the Cloud: VDI Simplified”—will focus on how businesses can elevate their desktops to the cloud easily and affordably.

“Many organizations that want affordable and flexible alternatives to traditional desktops have considered implementing their own virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), but come up against significant cost and complexity barriers,” said Song. “We’ll discuss how companies can gain all the benefits of VDI without the high costs and limitations of internally developed solutions, by moving desktops to a cloud-hosted service model.”

“Virtual desktops and cloud computing are on the top of many IT organizations’ priority lists, but there is a lot of confusion about how and when to leverage either or both of them. We believe that combining these two transformational approaches by moving virtual desktops to the cloud is the next logical step in the client computing evolution. We’re very pleased to be able to offer attendees the chance to hear insights about cloud-hosted virtual desktops from Mr. Song, one of the industry’s foremost experts,” said Dave Grant, VP of Marketing at Desktone.

In the webinar, IDC and Desktone will discuss the dynamics of the cloud, how to eliminate the barriers to VDI, and the benefits of moving desktops to the cloud. Attendees will receive Ian Song’s latest Featured Vendor Spotlight paper discussing the desktop virtualization movement, as well as a link to watch the recording of this webcast.
