IndependenceIT Recognized by 451 Research for Private-Label Desktop-as-a-Service Enablement
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
IndependenceIT today announced it has been featured by 451 Research (News - Alert) in a
new Impact Report titled, "IndependenceIT
Gains Momentum with its Private Label Desktop-as-a-Service Platform."
In the report, the company's Cloud Workspace Suite platform was noted
for built-in multi-tenancy, its own global service broker, simple
interface, the elimination of complex management tasks, and a service
provider delivery model with cloud/hypervisor agnostic deployment.
The June 2014 report examines Cloud Workspace Suite, a complete
cloud-based application and desktop-as-a-service enablement platform,
giving IT professionals unprecedented ease of deployment and management.
Beyond the ordinary virtual desktop, CWS provides an integrated online
experience that incorporates business applications and corporate file
systems into a single interface using a full-featured Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows
desktop from anywhere and on any device. Organizations retain complete
control, security and compliance oversight through an intuitive
browser-based management system that increases service quality and
improves responsiveness for lower help desk support costs.
According to the report, the small business and mid-market is still
generally underserved, hard for most other companies to tackle, and
therefore a good place for IndependenceIT to be - the product enables
desktop services to be set up with a small capital outlay. An underlying
API layer makes the product extensible and enables service provider
customers to white-label their offerings. The underlying technical model
is server-based session computing, which avoids the licensing challenges
surrounding VDI. It is also more efficient, more scalable and easier to
"The key focus of IndependenceIT is to deploy and manage application
delivery and DaaS environments so that end-users can connect from any
device and any location, while maintaining compliance, security, legal
and industry requirements," said John Abbott, analyst for 451 Research.
"The front-end system has been designed to be easy to use, and there are
over 700 certified applications that can be rapidly enabled on customer
license validation. But a lot of the functionality is also aimed at the
service providers tht operate it, in order to control IT operating
expenses and reduce capital expenditure."
Capabilities provided in IndependenceIT's Cloud Workspace Suite include
complete cloud workspace delivery, including desktops, applications,
back office systems and directory/user management. The software provides
the ability to run large-scale workloads on high-performance, scalable,
highly secure and reliable virtual machines hosted on the service
provider's cloud infrastructure of choice. All Cloud Workspace instances
across multiple locations can be accessed and managed through a single
management interface for maximum efficiency.
With an expanded management team of industry veterans, IndependenceIT's
booked seat increase in the first five months of 2014 is in excess of
330 percent and the company's partner ecosystem has increased more than
220 percent. New partners include Arrow Electronics (News - Alert), EarthLink, GCI and
Verio. In 2014, the company expanded its position as the industry's only
"Bring your Own Cloud" DaaS enabler with Microsoft Azure and Google
Compute Engine integration.
"Cloud workspaces are becoming increasingly popular as organizations
move from legacy desktop infrastructure to mobile computing," said Seth
Bostock, CEO for IndependenceIT. "As a cloud workspace enabler for
hundreds of service providers globally, we are pleased that 451 Research
has recognized the advantages of our software platform and the focus we
place on the channel. With growing interest in the technology from small
and medium size enterprises, the balance of 2014 promises to be a
standout year for the company and its partners."
