ICC Global Hosting Works with VMware to Deliver Hosted Desktops in the Cloud

ICC Global Hosting, the leader in virtual desktop hosting, today announced its membership in the VMware Service Provider Program (VSPP) to extend its relationship with VMware in delivering hosted virtual desktops in the Cloud. 
As both a VSPP and VMware VIP Partner Program member, ICC Global Hosting augments its relationship with VMware and supports the VMware vCloud and VMware vClient Initiatives with ICC Global Hosting’s desktop-as-a-service offering.

ICC Global Hosting’s proven methodology teamed with VMware’s leadership in desktop virtualization delivers a robust virtual desktop as a service that reduces cost and management associated with desktop support.  These hosted desktops help assure a consistent end user experience with the most current software and patches while increasing the client’s data security.  Desktops as a service allows customers to move their desktop expense from a CapEx to OpEx expenditure which more accurately reflects desktop support as an expense.

“VMware is helping our service provider partners build the eco-structure to host customers in the Cloud by leveraging our industry-leading virtualization platform,” said Geoffrey Waters, director, VMware Service Provider Program, VMware. “For those enterprises considering desktop virtualization, ICC Global Hosting can provide all the benefits of virtual desktops combined with the benefits of cloud computing.”

By enlisting ICC Global Hosting to host their desktops, clients have gained improved desktop services at lower costs.  “We think that hosted desktops are an answer to our desktop replacement dilemma during this time of budget constraints.  Our district will be able to provide equitable access with our existing equipment.  Now we don't have to forgo our technology initiative for lack of adequate equipment,” said Roger Wagner, Superintendent for Pike County Schools.

“We have an up and running hosting service and the ability to provide coverage with our nation-wide hosting grid.” states Tim Hites, President of ICC Global Hosting.  “We have launched a partner program that recognizes the value and strength of integrator partners and offers our partners an immediate cloud computing desktop solution without any investment of their own.”
