NewCloud Networks, a Denver-based cloud hosting provider, has released its newest Infrastructure-as-a-Service offering, Desktop-as-a-Service. NewCloud uses VMware virtualization as the platform for the cloud desktop solution.
“In a DaaS environment, just as within a virtual server environment, our customers can ask us to increase resources as needed, rather than having to capacity plan for a hardware purchase and risk underutilization,” said Sam V. Kumar, President of NewCloud Networks. “It is a faster and more cost-effective solution than making a traditional desktop purchase.
Some of the benefits of DaaS by NewCloud Networks include:
- Single user experience no matter where the user is located – As long as the user can connect to the Internet, the individual desktop is accessible.
- Elimination of remote connectivity problems – Historically, users wanting to access business data had to do so using a VPN connection. With DaaS, users don’t need to use a VPN because they are able to take their files anywhere they go.
- Security – The desktops are hosted in NewCloud Networks’ SOC 2 Type I Certified and HIPAA Compliant data centers.
NewCloud Networks also offers a hybrid cloud hosting service powered by VMware as well as Backup and Disaster Recovery for virtual and physical environments. The company provides these services from their data centers in Denver, CO and Phoenix, AZ. The data center locations were chosen because of their low risk of natural disaster.
