Desktone Powered Program Debuts for DaaS Delivery

Desktone Inc. introduced Wednesday its new partner program for sales of its hosted virtual desktop services.

The Desktone Powered Program, provides service providers, resellers and technology partners with technical, sales and marketing tools to boost customer adoption of hosted virtual desktops or desktops as a service (DaaS). DaaS enables Windows desktops on any device on-demand without the cost and complexity of building and managing infrastructure required by traditional virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions.

The Desktone program supports three types of organizations: Desktone Powered Service Provider, Desktone Powered Reseller and Desktone Powered Technology Partner. All partners have access to:

  • The Desktone Partner Portal An online solutions center with documentation, troubleshooting materials, marketing collateral and an interactive forum for feedback
  • Desktone University Online training and certification programs for technical, sales and marketing professionals
  • Quick Start Tools Three month rapid proof of concept and free demo desktops to try out the Desktone Platform
  • Technical Support Platform installation services, monitoring, testing and help desk support
  • Professional Services Expert support from a Desktone Technical Account Manager, a Channel Sales Manager and a Project Manager to assist with business optimization
  • Sales & Marketing Support Extensive sales and marketing enablement based on Desktones years of experience offering DaaS

“Unlike VDI providers, the Desktone Platform is hosted in the cloud and simple to deploy, without the cost and hassle of on-site hardware and software,” said Aaron Stone, CEO, Netelligent. ” Being a certified Desktone partner gives us the training and tools we need to accelerate customer deployments and provision desktops in minutes, helping our clients realize the benefits of DaaS even faster.”

In addition to Netelligent, Desktone reported that is has signed more than 20 new partners, including Dell, Quest, Fujitsu, Cisco, NetApp and Navisite to deliver DaaS via the Desktone Platform.
