VMware Acquires Desktop As a Service Vendor Desktone

Today, VMware announced the acquisition of Desktone, a Desktop as a Service vendor that specializes in desktop virtualization for Windows desktop environments and applications as a cloud-based service. Features of Desktone’s Desktop as a Service include a multi-tenant architecture whereby each customer receives their own discrete virtual environment, cloud-based self-provisioning and scalability across multiple geographies and IT environments. Desktone is certified to work with VMware’s virtualization ecosystem that includes the vSphere and vCloud fleet of products. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, though the deal does illustrate the depth of commercial interest in desktop virtualization given its cost, operational and security advantages for customers, in addition to its convergence with the industry’s larger migration toward cloud-based IT delivery.
