VMware guzzles 'desktop-as-a-service' firm Desktone

Yup, hired-out virty desktop pleased to call itself an AAS

SANS - Survey on application security programs

VMware has slurped Desktone to add another "as-a-service" offering to its catalogue of virtualisation software.

Desktone is apparently a "pioneer" of Desktop-as-a-Service and has "an advanced multi-tenant desktop virtualization platform for delivering Windows desktops and applications as a cloud service", according to VMware.

"By bringing Desktone's innovative platform in house, VMware can accelerate the delivery of DaaS through its network of over 11,000 VMware service provider partners while helping to shape and lead the future of the industry," enthused e-veep and GM of end-user computing Sanjay Poonen.

Desktone's platforms are already certified with VMware's vCloud, vSphere and Horizon View products.

The firm didn't give any of the financial details of the deal, but it did say that it expected the acquisition, which closed earlier this month, to be "immaterial" to its results. ®
