NaviSite Introduces Cloud-Based Desktop-as-a-Service

DaaS leverages the scale, simplicity and economics of the NaviCloud

"Cloud is changing the way enterprises view the corporate desktop," said  Denis Martin, Executive Vice President and CTO at NaviSite introduced 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.

"DaaS leverages the scale, simplicity and economics of the NaviCloud to deploy desktops across the enterprise," Martin continued, adding:

"Enterprises can now rapidly provision a secure virtual desktop for users that can be accessed on any device, anywhere without the upfront costs and complexity of traditional desktops while adhering to corporate security and compliance policies. Additionally, most companies rarely have a disaster recovery plan for data maintained on traditional desktop solutions, but cloud-based DaaS offers centralised, built-in business continuity and disaster recovery for the desktop at no additional cost."




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.

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.

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

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Dynatrace is an application performance management software company with products for the information technology departments and digital business owners of medium and large businesses. Building the Future of Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like "How is my application doing" but no idea how to get a proper answer.

@DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo, taking place November 12-13 in New York City, NY, is co-located with 22nd international CloudEXPO | first international DXWorldEXPO and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
