CompuCom, a leading technology infrastructure services company and a VMware Premier Partner, announced that it will deliver VMware’s new desktop as a service offering, VMware Horizon DaaS, as part of its technology portfolio. Announced in March 2014, Horizon DaaS provides cost-effective, enterprise-class virtual desktops running on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service.
The service offers the industry’s first hybrid desktop as a service (DaaS) solution that gives enterprises the ability to blend public cloud hosted desktops and on-premise VMware Horizon 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 (Apple iOS, Google Android) and other mobile devices.
As a complement to the VMware Horizon DaaS platform, CompuCom’s industry-leading End-User Enablement and Service Experience Management portfolios provide additional solutions to complete the cloud-based desktop lifecycle. These include solutions such as image creation and management, application packaging and delivery, patch/update management, as well as end-user support and break/fix services. Through a combination of technology provided by VMware and tailored CompuCom services, customers receive an end-to-end, flexible, and service level-driven desktop experience.
“We are pleased to work with CompuCom to deliver VMware Horizon DaaS,” said Frank Rauch, vice president, Americas Partner Organization, VMware. “Horizon DaaS, along with CompuCom value-added solutions, give enterprises the ability to provide their workers blended public/private cloud desktops and a superior user experience.”
