NaviSiteNaviSite, Inc., a premier provider of enterprise-class hosting, managed application, managed messaging and managed cloud services, introduced recently an enterprise-class, cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Services (DaaS) offering that enables IT organizations to deliver virtual desktop services to local and remote users from the cloud with an increased level of security and management and the same functionality as traditional desktops.

The NaviCloud Platform provides secure, virtualized IT Infrastructure-as-a-Service: servers, storage, memory, and bandwidth. The Platform sets the standard for enterprise-class infrastructure and cost-effective application performance. A robust, virtualized infrastructure deployed as multiple, secure infrastructure clouds in NaviSite’s data centers, the NaviCloud Platform serves as the underlying technology for all of NaviSite’s infrastructure, hardware, and application service offerings.

NaviSite’s DaaS offering, powered by the NaviCloud platform and Desktone, a desktop-as-a-service pioneer, provides IT departments the ability to add or remove desktops quickly and securely while avoiding the costs associated with frequent technology change. The new offering also enables organizations to scale based on the immediate needs of their business without being locked into a technology decision as their business evolves. This is ideal for enterprises entering a desktop/laptop refresh period, enterprises with branch offices, firms with large populations of mobile, remote and off-shore workers or seasonal and contract employees. DaaS significantly reduces desktop capex and opex costs, centralizes and streamlines desktop deployment, and enables a workforce to be more mobile and efficient while increasing security and control necessary for an enterprise environment.

NaviCloud DaaS enables enterprise organizations to:

  • Access their full desktop from anywhere
  • Maximize information security and data protection
  • Install, manage, and control corporate applications in a centralized environment
  • Use existing corporate software licenses
  • Control costs with predictable per user pricing
  • Support “bring your own device” policies
  • Provide a built-in disaster recovery plan for cloud-based desktops

Peter McKay, Chief Executive Officer, Desktone says “DaaS takes the cost and complexity out of managing virtual desktops. We’re extremely pleased that NaviSite, such a prominent cloud infrastructure provider, chose Desktone to deliver cloud-hosted desktops.”
