Dimension Data (News - Alert) New Zealand, a specialist IT services and solution provider that helps clients plan, build, support and manage their IT infrastructures, recently entered a partnership with Desktone Inc., the pioneer of Desktops-as-a-Service.
With this partnership, Dimension Data will be able to provide cost-effective, full-featured virtual desktops as a cloud service.
By using the Desktone virtual desktop Platform, the company will help New Zealand companies and government agencies to support corporate and remote workers, the rapid adoption of mobile computing and other enterprise initiatives in a scalable and cost-effective manner.
