THURSDAY, APRIL 26: Cirrus Dynamics is pleased to announce the introduction of a revolutionary cloud based virtual desktop solution for businesses.
Revolutionary cloud services currently being used by several Fortune 500 companies are now available to local businesses. Cloud-hosted virtual desktop computing provides a pristine Windows desktop, everytime, anytime, anyplace and with any device, tablet, laptop or smartphone.
Cirrus Dynamics, a Bermuda based service provider partner of Desktone Inc., is offering full-featured, cost-effective virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) via the cloud, with tremendous cost savings and a host of benefits to local and multinational companies.
The technology requires no upfront capital expenditure and moving desktops into the cloud has never been easier. No need to alter local networks, no equipment to purchase, no maintenance cost, and no need to replace PCs every three to five years. Companies that have yet to migrate to Windows 7 because of the need to replace aging desktop hardware can now avoid the expense.
The service offers businesses virtually unlimited desktop scalability, has the security of a private cloud and includes a self-service management portal. The service enables the choice for companies to use low cost thin clients which have no moving parts and can last up to 10 years. Thin clients run on as little as 6 watts of power compared to desktop PCs which easily consume 300 watts or more. This represents a significant reduction in power consumption that will complement green technology initiatives.
Cirrus Dynamics has selected Desktone Inc., the pioneer of Desktops as a Service (DaaS) and the developer of the industry’s only cloud-hosted virtual desktop platform, to deliver a virtual desktop experience comparable to, and in some cases better than, a local PC.
The Desktone Cloud platform provides the tools, multi-tenancy and scalability necessary to support the requirements of the largest corporations while providing them security and management control. DaaS eliminates the cost and complexity of deploying and managing virtual desktops for enterprises of all sizes.
Terrance Dean CTO, Cirrus Dynamics commented, “Desktone has provided us with a platform that has been designed to meet the scalability and accessibility requirements of a true cloud service and it provides the security and multi-tenancy that defines the as-a-service model.”
“Cirrus Dynamics' virtualization and data center experience and the Desktone platform, enable enterprises to enjoy public cloud benefits such as pay-as-you-go, scalability, self-service and selfmanagement while maintaining private cloud security and control.” said Kelland Hayward, CEO, Cirrus Dynamics. “ We are certain that creating IT performance enhancements and efficiencies, especially in the current economic environment, represents a sure and effective way to gain competitive advantage.”
