NComputing Introduces Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) Solution Aimed at Service Providers

Announces So-net Corporation as the First Service Provider to Offer DaaS Solution Based on NComputing's vSpace Desktop Virtualization Platform

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- NComputing, a leader in client virtualization, today announced a Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution designed for Service Providers enabling them to quickly roll-out hosted desktops as a service to small and medium businesses (SMBs) with lower cost and complexity than other approaches to DaaS.

NComputing is also announcing that So-net Corporation, a member of the Sony Group (collectively called "So-net"), is the first service provider to build a DaaS solution powered by NComputing's vSpace™ desktop virtualization platform. So-net's new DaaS offering for the Japanese market, called Virtual Desktop Service, went live today.

Desktop virtualization is playing an increasingly important role for SMBs who are looking for more efficient delivery and management of the corporate desktop. DaaS takes this to the next level by simplifying the delivery of desktops as a service, eliminating the need for IT to build and manage a desktop virtualization infrastructure, while enabling rapid provisioning, simple scaling and easy management of end user desktops.

Furthermore, a Server Based Computing (SBC) model is increasingly becoming the ideal DaaS approach for SMBs, where simplicity and affordability are imperative. By enabling Service Providers to build DaaS solutions based on a SBC model such as the NComputing vSpace platform, SMBs can now more easily realize the benefits of desktop virtualization with a simple, powerful and affordable solution, delivered as a cloud service.

So-net selects NComputing for DaaS Offering to SMB and SOHO customers in Japan
As the first NComputing DaaS provider, So-net has based its offering on NComputing's award-winning vSpace desktop virtualization platform, due to its unique formula of simplicity, performance and value. So-net is a leading Japanese service provider that offers Internet connectivity, VPN, FTTH carrier services, cloud computing solutions, and system and web integration services to its business customers and consumers in Japan.

So-net is leveraging core NComputing technologies for a complete, end-to-end DaaS offering, including:

  • vSpace Server Software for virtualizing Windows apps and desktops
  • User Experience Protocol (UXP), a highly optimized and adaptive display protocol for delivering any app to any device
  • vSpace Management Center for backend DaaS management
  • vSpace Client Software for Windows end-points
  • NComputing L-series thin client devices

Today, So-net announced the General Availability of the NComputing-based DaaS solution in Japan. So-net's DaaS solution enables its customers to easily and quickly host their desktops in the cloud. Additionally, the So-net Self Care website allows IT administrators to automate the provisioning and management of those desktops. As part of a turnkey, end-to-end DaaS solution, So-net also offers a choice of fully integrated and pre-configured Software Clients and Hardware Thin Clients. This results in seamless, zero-touch deployments.

Low Risk and Low Cost DaaS Solution for Service Provider Delivery
NComputing's Server Based Computing approach to DaaS provides service providers with an alternative to VDI-based DaaS solutions that can be costly to implement and complex to manage. By basing a DaaS solution on the NComputing vSpace desktop virtualization platform, service providers can achieve faster time-to-market and provide their SMB customers with all the advantages of a cloud-based virtual desktop solution at a cost that is less than a traditional PC. In addition, NComputing is delivering the first end-to-end DaaS solution for service providers, including the full vSpace desktop virtualization software stack and both software and thin clients, providing a turn-key, one-stop shop for the end-to-end solution.

This gives service providers a low-risk model to easily design, build and launch a cost-effective DaaS service with minimal upfront costs and effort. Flexible pay-as-you-grow licensing coupled with the power and simplicity of the vSpace platform means that service providers can start small and align the growth of their DaaS infrastructure with the growth in their customer base and revenues.

The new NComputing DaaS solution for service providers represents another step forward in NComputing's mission to deliver the most innovative client virtualization solutions to the market today, with a unique formula of simplicity, performance and value. NComputing was recently named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape Worldwide Client Virtualization Software 2013 Vendor Assessment Report, which noted NComputing's successful evolution from "a device-centric company" to a "software company with a client virtualization platform purpose built for simplicity, low cost, and minimal IT resources."
