It’s true: Workspot and Microsoft Azure are “an item”. Workspot is an insanely simple, turnkey service for deploying desktops, apps and workstations on Azure. We have finely tuned our solutions to deploy on Azure in just one day, and we made that commitment because we believe Azure is the best public cloud for Windows workloads. And apparently plenty of others think so too. Analysts at KeyBanc found that Microsoft gained market share in the fourth quarter of 2017. In a survey conducted last year by SumoLogic, enterprises with at least 500 employees showed a clear preference for Microsoft Azure. And with Microsoft reporting 98% Azure revenue growth for the quarter ending December 31, 2017, we’re feeling like things are going well. Our Desktop Cloud, App Cloud and Workstation Cloud solutions are tightly integrated with Azure, and that’s how we deliver value to you on day one. But doesn’t everyone do that? What’s so special about Workspot?
“I really miss my data center” (said no one ever)
If we take a little walk down memory lane, you’ll easily recall the days of massive data center consolidation. Data centers are expensive and time consuming to maintain, so most organizations streamlined their data center foot print to one or two locations. Seems right? Well, it did before all your remote users started screaming. Organizations with employees, contractors and partners scattered across the globe in branch offices began feeling the effects of the dreaded latency. 250 milliseconds is a reeeeaaalllly long time to wait around for an app to respond when the pressure is on to get your job done. That kind of latency wrecks productivity and morale. And think about those kinds of delays compounded over the course of a day. In the context of patient care or financial transactions, those delays can be devastating. But you don’t have to worry about that anymore. Pretty much everyone we speak to wants to get rid of their data center infrastructure. When you let cloud services remove the need for KTLO (keeping the lights on) IT tasks, I guarantee you will find much more interesting things to do with the money and time you save. Most CIOs today already get this, and it’s only a question of when they make the move. Don’t worry; Workspot and Azure have this.
A completely different approach to end user computing
You don’t need to think about data center consolidation anymore. Workspot is built exclusively for Azure. And now it’s all about strategically using the 42+ Azure regions around the world to locate your desktops and apps close to your users. Workspot points users to the nearest Azure region, and that means reduced latency and packet loss and way better performance. You can also deploy some desktops and apps on prem if your organization requires it; for Workspot that’s easy, and all your users, whether on Azure or on-prem, are managed from a single pane of glass. So here’s your checklist. No other vendor can make this happen for you:
- Get rid of your on-premises data center headache
- Deploy Workspot virtual desktops, apps and GPU workstations on Azure in a day
- Access any of the 42+ Azure regions around the world so your users are close to their desktops and apps for great performance
- Fortify desktop, app and data security
- Scale instantly and infinitely
- Save money
- Have more fun
