Desktone, Inc., provider of the first solution that enables desktops as a service (DaaS), today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Northeast 100 Top Private Companies. The first-annual Northeast 100 list was compiled by the AlwaysOn editorial panel. In order to be eligible for the list, companies in the Northeastern United States had to be creating new business opportunities in high-growth markets, demonstrating significant market traction and pursuing game-changing technology in a key sector. AlwaysOn received hundreds of nominations for this year’s list.

Desktone’s DaaS solution helps enterprises quickly realize the full benefits of centralized virtual desktops without having to build and deploy the infrastructure internally. It dramatically reduces desktop TCO, transforming computing costs from fixed CapEx to variable OpEx. Service providers benefit from optimizing use of their data center assets while delivering a new highly scalable, value-added service to customers.

Desktone and the Northeast 100 Top Companies for 2008 will be honored at the AlwaysOn Venture Summit East to be held April 7 – April 9, 2008, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston, MA. Venture Summit East a two-day gathering that highlights the significant economic, political and technology trends impacting the global growth investor. The idea behind the Northeast 100 companies list is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the Northeast region’s technology industry.

“For the first annual elite Northeast 100 list we surveyed more than 500 venture investors, investment bankers, and technology insiders, who nominated hundreds of companies to determine the Northeast 100 winners,” said Tony Perkins, Founder and Editor, AlwaysOn Network. “Each of the Northeast 100 winners had to demonstrate leadership among their peers in the following areas: innovation, market opportunity, commercialization, media buzz, and stakeholder value creation. We congratulate them all on this great honor!”

“We’re pleased that AlwaysOn recognizes the unique value Desktone brings to the market and are honored to be chosen for this prestigious award,” said Harry Ruda, CEO, Desktone. “Enterprises are excited about the benefits that virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) promises, but they realize that the inherent costs and complexities make implementing VDI internally prohibitive. By turning virtual desktops into a service, we’re eliminating the barriers to VDI adoption and enabling businesses to realize tremendous financial savings and efficiencies.”
