The Desktone Platform is the only solution that enables virtual hosted desktops to be delivered as an outsourced, cloud subscription service. Currently powering the cloud-hosted desktop offerings of more than a dozen global service providers, it enables enterprises to quickly realize the full potential and benefits associated with virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments — reduced deployment complexity; improved management, security and compliance; and superior end-user productivity — without the capital expense and complicated systems integration of building and deploying a customized internal solution.   Desktone developed the industry’s first virtual desktop hosting platform, introducing the concept of desktops as a service (DaaS). Desktone remains the only company providing a platform specifically architected with multi-tenancy and a service grid, making it the only product capable of delivering true desktops in the cloud.   The Desktone Platform enables enterprises to quickly realize the full potential and benefits associated with virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments — reduced deployment complexity; improved management, security and compliance; and superior end-user productivity — without the capital expense and complicated systems integration of building and deploying a customized internal solution. It offers enterprises the flexibility to turn on, turn down virtual workspaces, and support use cases for a geographically dispersed workforce.   The platform consists of two distinct tiers: enterprise and service provider. Key to enabling DaaS is the fact that the Desktone Platform integrates all VDI functionality while separating the enterprise and service provider tiers. This allows enterprises to manage a virtual desktop environment supported by physical resources owned and maintained by a third-party, and that reside either at the enterprise or at a service provider. Enterprises realize the full benefits of the virtual desktop infrastructure, but don't incur the capital and labor expenses, learning curve, or risks associated with owning the physical resources. Service providers benefit from optimizing use of their data center assets while offering a new, highly scalable, multi-tenant, value-added service to customers.
Desktone’s platform was built from the ground up for service providers to deliver workspaces as a cloud service. The list of features is long but the ones that set us apart are:  
  • Multi-tenancy – a must for cloud delivery, the tenant gets a dedicated VLAN, Vflier, compute, access portal, and access gateway.
  • Elastic Scalability - Desktone has unlimited scalability. Other competitive solutions have limits per hardware “stack” so Service Providers have to manage multiple “stacks”.
  • Single platform for every workspace model – full VDI desktop user session (RDS) desktops, and apps.
  • Lowest cost of delivery – open source based technology eliminates MS licensing fees, no third party software to manage.
  • Enterprise Integration - while other solutions struggle to give users access to basic IT resources such as Active Directory, file shares, collaboration servers, etc. Desktone provides a secure connection to these resources.
  • Complete Security - Desktone’s holistic approach is built on 5 pillars of security; Network separation, resource separation, secure communications, secure access & minimal node functionality.  No other solution provides the same depth and breath.
  • Tiered Role Separation - IT management responsibility can be delegated across multiple levels such as Service Provider, IT and End Users with specialized IT management dashboards across each role.
