Nimdesk Desktop as a Service (DaaS) Solution crafted on Artisan Infrastructure Enables Cloud Providers to Offer Virtual Desktops to End User Customers

DaaS Scalable Services Design crafted on Artisan Infrastructure provides rapid time to market for service providers to deliver quick, affordable DaaS cloud solutions with Nimdesk

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its support for cloud solution providers, Nimdesk today announced a partnership with Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale infrastructure-as-a-service provider, to provide functionality for joint customers faster and more affordably. 

Managed service providers, IT solution providers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators can now deploy Nimdesk DaaS quickly and efficiently from Artisan Infrastructure's ecosystem. Nimdesk DaaS, RDS2, and VDI Broker solutions represent the most cutting edge technology in the centralized desktop space. Our architecture and design allow service provider admins to do much more and provide much more power to their tenant admins and end-users than any other solution available today.

"We're excited to partner with Artisan and their partner network enabling a seamless avenue for ISP's, CSP's and End-User organizations to offer DaaS and VDI solutions at a reasonable cost," said Nimdesk Chief Sales Officer, Sterling Andersen. "Our products provide options for partners and end-users to brand or co-brand all interface panels; host on-site, co-location, or in the cloud; and generate custom admin control portals and user web portals to suit the unique needs of the partner, service provider, and customer."

Artisan Infrastructure enables solution providers to retain complete autonomy, control, security and visibility while choosing, deploying and managing their own cloud solutions through Cornerstone, the company's virtual private data center platform.

"During our testing and certification process, it was evident to our solution engineers that Nimdesk has created a revolutionary VDI product, the Nimdesk Broker, and then using appropriate software abstraction mechanisms and APIs, provide the ability not just for service providers to white-label and custom brand a DaaS offering across many locales, industries and verticals. The final result of our collaboration was proven in a Scalable Services Design, crafted on Artisan Infrastructure which delivers service providers an easily deployed and branded DaaS solution within minutes rather than weeks."

Nimdesk and Artisan are hosting a webinar for managed service providers, IT systems integrators and other ISPs to describe the benefits and value of their partnership to the channel. Webinar participants will receive a 30-day, no obligation, trial of Nimdesk. The webinars are scheduled for Thursday, January 16th at 1:00 central standard time.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In 2014, the market witnessed a massive migration to the cloud as enterprises finally overcame their fears of the cloud’s viability, security, etc. Over the past 18 months, AWS, Google and Microsoft have waged an ongoing battle through a wave of price cuts and new features.

The new competitive field has ...

Tiempo Development is a nearshore software development company.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...
