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
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."1
"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 Workspaces API will allow us to deliver strategic
business solutions as a service, seamlessly integrated with our advanced
management system and existing service portfolio."
