Workspot New Release Highlights Faster Cloud Deployments, In-App Support and 99.98% Uptime

Workspot is the first multi-tenant, cloud-native solution to deploy both VDI and Windows applications across multiple sites, including on-premises and public clouds. Our micro-services architecture and agile development model has resulted in rapid innovation. We question everything and we try to look forward to anticipate what customers need – that’s how innovation happens.  We are excited to share some key new features with you.

Connector-less Azure deployments

In our latest release we are extending our cloud control plane – Workspot Control – to communicate with cloud providers directly instead of relying on connectors at every tenant location. Our primary goal is to reduce components for every new deployment in the cloud for even faster cloud deployments. Time-to-value is always about questioning what can be simplified next.

John Maeda calls this philosophy “Thoughtful Reduction”, and the Workspot engineering team lives by it.

We need a connector for on-prem deployments because there is no direct inbound communication path from the cloud to the customer datacenter. The connector is used for outbound communication to the cloud control plane. However, most customers are now looking at cloud-first, multi-site, hybrid deployments. Companies want to leverage multiple Microsoft Azure regions globally to put the desktops closer to the end users. Is the connector important for cloud deployments? In this case, “Thoughtful Reduction” entails the ability to think ahead 24 months to what a common deployment looks like and envision the problems that could occur due to all the moving pieces in the stack.

To illustrate, let’s consider a customer looking at doing VDI/App-Publishing and putting VMs at three different locations globally on Azure. The customer wants to run desktops in US West, UK South and in Japan. What would it take to simplify such a deployment? What’s the point of six connector instances in such a deployment?
