Desktone & GreenBytes Partner on Virtual Desktop Environments

The DaaS provider and IO-offload developer are combining the Desktone platform with the GreenBytes VIO virtual storage appliance.

Desktop as a Service (DaaS) provider Desktone Inc. has partnered with IO-offload developer GreenBytes Inc. with the goal of making high-performance virtual desktop environments practical for SMBs. Through the partnership, the companies will combine the Desktone DaaS platform with the GreenBytes VIO virtual storage appliance.

“Many SMBs that want to implement full-featured virtual desktops have been waylaid by the high cost and complexities inherent in building and managing the infrastructure,” says Desktone CTO Danny Allan. “By integrating GreenBytes’ IO offload solution with our cloud-managed DaaS Platform, we’re making it easier for companies to implement high-performing, low-cost virtual desktops.”

The new offering is a pre-configured, all-in-one virtual desktop appliance that includes storage, compute, and desktop virtualization software. It resides at the customer site and is managed remotely through the cloud by a Cloud Provider. Desktone’s virtual desktop architecture, specifically its multi-tenancy and ability to manage multiple locations from one infrastructure, enables service providers to deliver this hybrid cloud model.

GreenBytes’ vIO virtual storage appliance leverages GreenBytes’ zero-latency inline deduplication technology to reduce the amount of data stored and boosts performance of virtual desktops.

Customers use the Desktone DaaS Platform’s IT portal to add, remove, and edit virtual desktops. Service Providers use the DaaS Platform’s Service Provider’s Portal to provision and manage the virtual desktop environment.†

“By combining GreenBytes technology, which cuts virtual desktop storage requirements, with Desktone’s multi-tenant virtual desktop platform,” says GreenBytes founder and CTO Bob Petrocelli, “we’re enabling a desktop experience that’s flexible and cost-effective, and requires little management by the customer.”

Desktone’s cloud-managed virtual desktop offeringis available immediately from authorized Service Providers.
