New Desktone-based Service to Launch in Q1, 2009  

Desktone, Inc., provider of the first solution that enables virtual desktops as an outsourced subscription service, today announced that it has signed SoftBank Telecom as the first service provider in Japan and Asia Pacific to offer desktops as a service (DaaS) using the Desktone Virtual-D Platform.  

"Japan and Asia Pacific represent an enormous opportunity, and we’re thrilled to mark our foray into these markets with the leading provider of voice and data networking solutions," said Mr. Harry Ruda, CEO of Desktone.  "With this Desktone-based offering, SoftBank Telecom can provide an innovative, high-value service that speeds customers’ time to adopt virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), while enabling them to quickly reap VDI’s cost savings and flexibility benefits."

"Many of our customers want to adopt VDI but don’t have the resources to build and manage it internally.  Through extensive research, we determined that Desktone is the only provider that can power VDI as an outsourced service, and enable us to bring this very strategic initiative to market," said Mr. Ken Miayuchi, COO of SoftBank Telecom, which realized US$3.7 billion revenue this year.  "By combining our powerful network with Desktone’s unique platform, we can provide customers an effective, simple way to implement virtual desktops, without having to incur the upfront CAPEX, without worrying about being locked into particular vendor products, and-equally critical-while significantly lowering their power consumption and physical space requirements."

Responding to strong customer demand for easy, cost-effective VDI, SoftBank Telecom plans to make its DaaS offering generally available in Q1, 2009.  SoftBank Telecom anticipates that its first customer will be SoftBank Mobile, who will implement this in their retail wireless stores to reduce desktop TCO and helpdesk inquiries.

Desktone-based DaaS Solution
SoftBank Telecom is building its desktops as a service solution on the only end-to-end virtual desktop platform designed specifically for hosted, subscription-based DaaS. 

The Virtual-D Platform integrates all enabling technologies into a single, automated self-service platform, helping enterprises quickly realize the full benefits of centralized virtual desktops without having to build and deploy the infrastructure internally.  It dramatically reduces enterprise desktop TCO and transforms virtual desktop infrastructure costs from CAPEX to OPEX.  And because the Virtual-D Platform is uniquely designed along two tiers (enterprise and service provider), it lets enterprise customers maintain ownership and control over their Windows OS images, applications and all relating licensing, while outsourcing the physical data center infrastructure powering their virtual desktops to SoftBank Telecom.  

About Desktone
Desktone, Inc. provides the only virtual desktop hosting platform that enables desktops to be delivered as an outsourced subscription service.  The Desktone Virtual-D Platform integrates all enabling technologies into a single, automated, self-service platform.  By offering desktops as a service, Desktone simplifies large-scale desktop provisioning and management, transforms virtual desktop infrastructure costs from CAPEX to OPEX, provides greater protection of physical resources and corporate information, and increases business agility-all of which reduces desktop total cost of ownership.
