VMware, Inc. Launches VMware(TM) Horizon DaaS(r) to Enable Simple and Flexible Delivery of Desktops in the Cloud
Mar 10 14
VMware, Inc. launched VMware(TM) Horizon DaaS(r), a new cloud-based desktop service that delivers cost-effective enterprise-class virtual desktops running on VMware vCloud(r) Hybrid Service(TM). The service offers the industry's first hybrid desktop as a service (DaaS) solution that gives customers the ability to blend public cloud desktops and on-premise VMware Horizon View(TM) private cloud desktops for a seamless end-user experience. Following a few simple steps, IT can provision, deploy and manage high quality, full Windows desktops to end-users that can be accessed from laptops, desktops, zero/thin clients, Chromebooks, tablets and mobile devices. Unlike other DaaS offerings that only offer Windows server or Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments, VMware Horizon DaaS supports both types of desktops in addition to full Windows Client Desktops all at an affordable price point. The service provides an adaptive user experience across devices, locations, and media for consistent quality and exceptional user experience. It simplifies the delivery of high quality desktops and applications as a cloud service so customers can quickly bring up desktops from the cloud for any number of end-users in just a few clicks. VMware Horizon DaaS supports enterprise mobility by enabling end-user access to full Windows desktops and applications through the cloud from anywhere, at anytime using desktops or laptops, zero/thin clients, Chromebooks or mobile devices (Android or iOS). As a result, the total cost of ownership is significantly reduced by offloading operational overhead and eliminating upfront capital costs. With monthly subscription fees that are predictable and flexible, customers can increase the speed of deployment with an architecture built for the right blend of on-premise and off-premise/cloud virtual desktops. VMware Horizon DaaS is built on the VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, a platform that enables customers to extend the same applications, networking, management, operations and tools across both on-premise and off-premise environments. By leveraging vCloud Hybrid Service, Horizon DaaS enables customers to extend their data center seamlessly to the cloud and deploy additional hybrid applications alongside their hybrid desktop environment.
RadiSys Corporation Integrates Software MRF with VMware
Mar 5 14
Radisys Corporation announced the integration of VMware vSphere 5.5, a virtualization platform, with Radisys's Software MRF to deliver virtualized media processing capabilities for mobile operators' telecom cloud deployments. Mobile operators are turning to the cloud to realize economies of scale, cost effectiveness, scalability and lower CapEx and OpEx. These telecom cloud implementations require the flexibility and economics of using virtual machines, and a hypervisor layer allows multiple virtual machines to run on a single server. However, a hypervisor can also introduce timing issues that can affect the real-time performance that is essential for telecommunications services. Radisys' Software MRF integrated with VMware's vSphere 5.5 is engineered to ensure optimized media processing performance in virtualized environments, even under high system load, with more than 90% of the capacity as compared to the Software MRF running on a bare metal server.
