Desktone and GreenBytes Partner to Deliver On-Premises, Cloud-Managed Virtual Desktops

All-in-One Appliance Eliminates Key Storage, Management and Cost Barriers to Virtual Desktop Deployments

LEXINGTON, MA and PROVIDENCE, RI -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/13 -- Desktone, Inc., the pioneer of Desktops as a Service (DaaS), and GreenBytes, Inc., developer of IO-Offload solutions that optimize full-featured virtual desktop environments, today announced a strategic partnership to offer service providers an all-in-one on-premises solution. By combining the Desktone DaaS Platform with the GreenBytes vIO virtual storage appliance, the companies are making high-performance virtual desktop environments simple and affordable.

"Many businesses that want to implement full-featured virtual desktops have been waylaid by the high cost and complexities inherent in building and managing the infrastructure," said Danny Allan, CTO, Desktone. "Desktone and GreenBytes have had great success in helping businesses remove those obstacles and now, by integrating GreenBytes' IO offload solution with our purpose-built, cloud-managed DaaS Platform, we're making it even easier for companies to implement high-performing, low-cost virtual desktops."

"Like Desktone, we believe businesses should be able to implement robust virtual desktop environments without having to invest in and manage additional infrastructure," said Bob Petrocelli, Founder and CTO, GreenBytes. "By combining GreenBytes technology, which slashes virtual desktop storage requirements, with Desktone's mulit-tenant virtual desktop platform, we're enabling a desktop experience that's incredibly flexible and cost-effective, and requires very little management by the customer."

"Cost and management complexities are huge barriers to virtual desktop deployments. Desktone and GreenBytes are both known for tackling these challenges with innovative cloud services and storage deduplication technologies that optimize desktop virtualization, respectively. By providing a converged appliance that minimizes storage needs and offloads virtual desktop management to Service Providers, the companies can significantly ease the path to virtual desktops," said Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst, ESG.

The new offering is a pre-configured, all-in-one virtual desktop appliance -- including storage, compute and desktop virtualization software -- that resides at the customer site and is managed remotely through the cloud by a Cloud Provider. Desktone's unique 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' patented zero latency inline deduplication technology, which sends only truly unique data to the storage system, to reduce the amount of data stored, often by more than 90%, and boosts performance of virtual desktops. Customers use the Desktone DaaS Platform's IT portal to easily 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.

Desktone's cloud-managed virtual desktop offering is available immediately from authorized Service Providers. For information, contact [email protected]
