VMware has launched VMware Horizon DaaS, a new cloud-based desktop service that delivers cost-effective enterprise-class virtual desktops running on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service.

VMware says this is the industry's first hybrid desktop as a service solution that gives customers the ability to blend public cloud desktops and on-premise VMware Horizon View private cloud desktops for a seamless end-user experience. IT can provision, deploy and manage high quality, full Windows desktops to end-users that can be accessed from laptops, desktops, zero/thin clients, Chromebooks, tablets (Apple iOS, Google Android) and mobile devices.

"Our experience working with customers deploying DaaS the last several years have shown that the majority prefers a blended environment with both on-premise and cloud desktops; however, very few solutions in the market can deliver a seamless end-user experience across multiple clouds like VMware Horizon DaaS," said Sumit Dhawan, vice president and general manager, desktop products, end-Uuer computing, VMware.

VMware Horizon DaaS is available immediately from the company or through select channel partners and resellers in the United States with global expansion expected later in the year. Pricing starts at $35 per month per user for a full Windows client experience.
