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.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. ...
