By : |December 19, 2013 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Cisco announced a new Cisco Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution, which adds highly agile, cloud-based desktop virtualization solutions to Cisco’s existing desktop virtualization product portfolio.

The Cisco DaaS solution is built on the Cisco Desktop Virtualization Solution, enabling cloud providers to offer their customers a Cisco Powered, virtual desktop subscription service.

With the Cisco DaaS solution, cloud providers can offer their business customers scalability, security, performance, and efficiency. At the same time, these cloud providers gain operational capabilities such as management tools, licensing components and the ability to deliver desktops to multiple customers from one platform. The Cisco DaaS solution provides fast, easy and economical entry for cloud providers to this rapidly growing market and brings new service and revenue opportunities.


For business customers, the solution provides increased choice and flexibility. Customers can choose to build their own on-premises desktop virtualization solution or buy a cloud-based, as-a-service solution, with Cisco Powered performance, scalability, and security.

The Cisco DaaS solution is based on the performance advantages and simplified management provided by Cisco Unified Computing System and the Cisco Unified Data Center architecture. Cisco solutions are designed to ensure a highly secure and consistent user experiences on any device, anytime and anywhere.

To further strengthen this platform, Cisco has improved its underlying desktop virtualization solution to deliver greater scalability and performance, optimized cost, and wider client use case support for DaaS deployments through the following:

* Improved density of hosted virtual desktops offering up to 252 virtual desktops on a single UCS blade server.
* Support for end user applications that require high-quality rendering of immersive, 3D graphics.
* New UCS Solution Accelerator Packs for Desktop Virtualization, providing simplified ordering.

These enhancements benefit both on-premise and cloud-based (DaaS) implementers and end users, and are the result of Cisco’s continued investment in desktop virtualization solutions.
