“We are very pleased to have Leostream join the APS ecosystem”
Parallels APS is fast becoming a global standard platform for the cloud enablement of a wide range of web and cloud-based applications. Service providers can work with Parallels to leverage robust cloud applications, such as Leostream Cloud Desktops, to provide a seamless purchase, deployment and maintenance experience for their end user customers.
“We are very pleased to have Leostream join the APS ecosystem,” said John Zanni, vice president, Service Provider Marketing and Alliances. “There is a strong interest in cost effective VDI-as-a-Service offerings, and with Leostream Cloud Desktops being a syndicated solution, it means our service provider partners now have the opportunity to rapidly bring it to market.”
“The Leostream Cloud Desktops interface allows service providers to offer a VDI solution based on a public cloud infrastructure, instead of having to build it out in their own private data center,” said Mike Palin, CEO of Leostream. “Many organizations can take advantage of key business benefits of VDI including lowering IT costs, securing data in the datacenter and allowing users to bring their own devices to work. We help organizations realize the benefits of VDI at a lower price point. Together with the Parallels’ APS ecosystem, we can make it easier and more profitable for service providers targeting the SMB market to deploy and maintain desktop services for customers in the public cloud.”
