Called Desktop as a Service (DaaS), this latest addition to the PLDT Cloud line expands the workplace as it allows users to access it online and work on their desktop set up from any smart device via the internet or a private network.
“This gives end-users the functionalities of their desktops with the convenience of mobility as they work from it on PLDT Cloud,” said FVP and PLDT ALPHA Enterprise Head Jovy Hernandez. “Cloud technology is fast becoming necessary among global enterprises to help them keep up with today’s fast-paced day-to-day operations, especially with the advent of the ‘bring your own device’ practice in advanced economies.”
“With DaaS, we are transforming the way we access and maximize our work space with the latest technology. This will better equip our local businesses and their people to service their customers, giving them the mobility and efficiency in business while lowering costs for IT maintenance and upgrades as it is hosted on the PLDT Cloud,” Hernandez added.
Accessible from any device, DaaS is offered under PLDT Cloud hosted in PLDT’s globally-certified line of VITRO Data Centers assuring customers the security and business continuity of the service. It features the basic applications of Microsoft operating systems in desktops which is upgradable and efficiently maintained in the cloud servers of PLDT.
Offered under the PLDT Cloud line, the cloud-based service is a joint offering of PLDT with leading global virtualization and cloud infrastructure leader VMWare.
“The PLDT-VMware Horizon DaaS Powered Cloud enables Philippines businesses to stay agile and competitive by providing a highly scalable, mobile and always-on solution without having to worry about existing infrastructure and know-how,” said Sanjay Deshmukh, Managing Director, End-User Computing, Asia Pacific and Japan, VMware. “Businesses can now enjoy a great end-user experience with a single client interface that allows access to cloud-hosted virtual desktops and hosted apps from any device, anywhere without compromising enterprise security.”
“Our heavy investments in infrastructure, technology, and our people, and our strategic partnerships with global leaders in various fields of ICT keep us at the forefront of empowering today’s local businesses with relevant and reliable services. This is part of our commitment in creating a robust Digital Infrastructure for the country.” Hernandez said.
