Verio Selects IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite To Offer Desktop-as-a-Service Application Enablement for SMBs
Partnership Underscores Strength, Extensibility and Versatility of Workspace Solution
Seattle – (March 18, 2014) – IndependenceIT today announced at the Microsoft Hosting Summit it has entered into a licensing agreement with Verio, an NTT Communications Company and the recognized industry leader in delivering online business solutions to SMBs worldwide. Verio will leverage IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite to enable application and desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) on a subscription basis with monthly pricing via Verio’s IT service platform.
Cloud Workspace Suite provides a complete cloud-based application and desktop-as-a-service enablement and delivery solution, giving small-to-medium businesses unprecedented ease of management and access to productivity tools. More than a simple virtual desktop, Cloud Workspace provides an integrated online experience that integrates access to business applications, a full-featured Microsoft Windows desktop, and corporate file systems, from anywhere and on any device. Organizations retain complete control, security and auditability for compliance through an intuitive Web-based management system that unifies all user and systems management tasks into a “single pane of glass,” reducing support costs and increasing responsiveness and service quality. The platform supports more than 600 business applications, enabled on-demand from within the interface.
“We’re excited about our partnership with Verio and to serve as the foundation for service-enabled applications to support their growing customer base,” said Seth Bostock, CEO for IndependenceIT. “Like us, Verio is strategically focused on delivering business solutions to SMBs, and this new offering will make access to mission critical applications easier to acquire, provision and manage than ever before.”
Verio will integrate the solution’s management and provisioning engine into its service portfolio via Cloud Workspace’s powerful application programming interface (API), allowing for on-demand deployment of leading business applications. This integration will allow Verio to manage service delivery through its existing management tools while integrating and automating desktop and application provisioning, deployment and support functions.
According Robert P. Mahowald, Program Vice President for IDC’s SaaS and Cloud Services Research Practice, “Figuring out how to find and capitalize on the enormous cloud services transformation is the number one strategic goal of all major IT product vendors. SaaS, and broader public cloud opportunities, represents both a tremendous challenge to meet change head-on and a huge opportunity to realign with partners, create new capabilities, move into new markets and define new leaders.”
“IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace provides a powerful and extensible Desktop-as-a-service platform for delivery of applications and full-featured desktop solutions,” said Hideyuki Yamasawa, President and CEO for Verio. “Cloud Workspace’s API will allow us to deliver strategic business solutions as a service, seamlessly integrated with our advanced management system and existing service portfolio.”
