Workspot on IT Business Edge: DaaS 2.0

Mike Vizard of IT Business Edge covers Workspot’s DaaS 2.0 announcement during Gartner’s Data Center Conference:

“While Workspot has an existing relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Brad Peterson, vice president of marketing for Workspot, says the company expects Microsoft to become the dominant provider of cloud services pertaining to desktop and productivity applications.

In general, Workspot is making a case for a DaaS 2.0 initiative that substantially reduces the number of components needed to create a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment. By making those components available as an Azure offering, Peterson says it now becomes possible for IT organizations to deliver DaaS as a true on-demand service. In fact, VDI has such negative connotations in terms of cost and complexity that Peterson says the IT industry as a whole needs to move away from it.”
