Toshiba launches hosted virtual desktop service

By : |October 7, 2013 0

CALIFORNIA, USA: Toshiba’s Cloud Services and Solutions, a part of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division, announced the availability of Toshiba’s Virtual Desktop Service (VDS).

A monthly hosted virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) service built on Toshiba-developed management software and storage technology as well as virtualization technology from Citrix Systems and VMware.

Toshiba’s VDS moves desktop management to the cloud, drastically reducing the complexity, risk and cost of deploying on-premise virtualized desktop offerings.

Today, enterprise IT decision-makers face an array of persistent and time-sensitive challenges, including data security, maintaining high performance and availability, and the need to increase the speed of applying updates and deploying desktops. In addition, IT faces increased pressure from employees for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies and flexibility for diverse work environments.

Toshiba’s VDS enables users to access their desktop from any Apple iOS, MacOS, Windows, Linux or Android device meeting certain minimum operating system requirements via a secure gateway without requiring authentication on the corporate network.

Toshiba’s proprietary Desktop Manager software provides IT Administrators and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) a single interface for managing all of their virtual desktops.

Toshiba’s VDS is built on Toshiba’s global cloud infrastructure, which provides a highly available platform with multiple local and remote backup options. Security for both data and the data centers conforms to internationally accredited security protocols.

The Virtual Desktop Service will be available in early Q4 with either Citrix XenDesktop or VMware Horizon View and can be configured with varying levels of memory, storage and backup capabilities.
