Cloud Hosted Desktops - The Smart, Low Risk Way To Enter The Cloud

  1. 1. Cloud-Hosted Desktops:<br />The Smart, Low-Risk Way to Enter the Cloud<br />Jeff Fisher<br />Senior Director, Strategic Development | Desktone<br />

  3. 3. What is Desktops as a Service (DaaS®)<br />A cost-effective, monthly subscription offering available today from leading service providers<br />Service providers host virtual desktops on behalf of enterprises, who retain control over desktop access and management<br />Solution for running virtualized, yet genuine Windows client environments (XP or Vista) in a service provider cloud<br />Leverages industry standard hosted virtual desktop architecture (server virtualization + PC remoting technologies)<br />3<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />

  10. 10. Enterprise VDI vs. DaaS: Shifting vs. Eliminating Capital Costs<br />With enterprise VDI, corporate-owned desktops PCs are substituted for virtual desktops housed on a corporate-owned desktop hosting infrastructure<br />Conversely, DaaS enables the infrastructure hosting the virtual desktops to be truly outsourced – owned and operated by a service provider<br />This makes DaaS is a better fit for organizations looking to truly lower desktop CAPEX and OPEX as opposed to simply shifting internal IT costs<br />6<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />

  12. 12. The Promise of the Cloud<br />Cloud computing is all the rage; surpassing the frenzy around virtualization<br />Many of today’s conversations are about how virtualization can take place in the cloud<br />Lots of touted benefits such as elasticity, anytime/anywhere access<br />No CAPEX to get started; ongoing subscription economics<br />8<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />
  13. 13. The Challenge of the Cloud<br />Cloud computing for the enterprise in 2008/2009 = virtualized server workloads<br />Shift introduces numerous challenges, most notably data security<br />Most server workloads are inextricably bound to their data tier; if you move the server, you need to move the data<br />Majority of enterprises are still uncomfortable having their data reside in a data center that’s not under their control<br />Also, many back office servers are tightly integrated with other systems in the enterprise data center, which adds the to the complexity of moving them to the cloud<br />9<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />

  17. 17. Start with Cloud-Hosted Desktops<br />Desktone believes virtual desktops – not servers – are a better place to start with enterprise cloud computing<br />Most fixed corporate desktops environments are architected to have application and user data stored off the local disk in the enterprise data center (AD domain controllers, home drives for user generated data and client/server apps)<br />13<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />
  18. 18. The Security of Cloud-Hosted Desktops<br />When you shift this kind of user environment to the cloud, the desktop instance has moved, but the data and back-end systems are still hosted in the enterprise data center<br />Virtual desktops are now running in a highly secure, virtual branch office of the enterprise – that is, the service provider data center<br />Additionally, if you virtualize and centralize physical PCs from remote branch or home offices with limited or no physical security, you’ve actually increased the security of the environment<br />This means the PC won’t:<br /><ul><li>Walk off

  22. 22. Additional Benefitsof Cloud-Hosted Desktops<br />Preserves the rich Windows client experience in the cloud, unlike other forms of cloud-hosted desktops (Shared Services and Browser-based)<br />Sustains the existing enterprise IT operating model, while introducing cloud-like properties (elasticity, anytime/anywhere access, subscription economics)<br />Separates service provider and enterprise responsibilities<br />Supports a combination of on-and off-premise hosting models <br />16<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />

  25. 25. Where’s this all headed?<br />DaaS is just the starting point in a longer term vision of the “Branch Office in the Sky”<br />This is the concept of virtualizing and centralizing all physical IT assets that currently live in distributed branch offices into a service provider cloud<br />Branch IT assets include:<br /><ul><li>Desktops
  26. 26. Servers (directory, file, print, web filter/proxy, mail)</li></ul>By moving branch office IT to a service provider cloud, organizations can finally get out of the extremely costly and distracting business of maintaining IT assets in their branches<br />19<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />
  27. 27. Conclusion<br />DaaS is an emerging, yet viable delivery model (alongside enterprise VDI) for hosted virtual desktops<br />DaaS = Cloud-Hosted Desktops<br />Cloud-hosted desktops are the smart, low-risk way to enter the Cloud<br /><ul><li>Host virtual desktops with no CAPEX
  28. 28. Avoid moving sensitive systems and data to the cloud
  29. 29. Preserve the rich Windows client experience for end-users
  30. 30. Leverage existing IT operational and support models
  31. 31. Gain cloud-like benefits without full cloud migration
  32. 32. Choose between on-and off-premise hosting models (or both) </li></ul>20<br />©2009 Desktone, Inc. | All rights reserved.<br />
