Hawaiian Telcom is ramping up its cloud services play with the addition of its Desktop as a Service (DaaS), a platform offered to businesses for a monthly subscription fee. The DaaS service host desktops, including all of their applications and files in the cloud at Hawaiian Telcom's Class-A, SystemMetric's Data Center, Endeavor.
The new service is centered on creating new efficiencies required as businesses become more mobile. A business that deploys DaaS can enable a truly mobile workforce while eliminating the cost and complexity of managing multiple desktops and applications. Since a company's data is secured in the cloud, Hawaiian Telcom said that it can reduce concerns related to hacking, loss or theft. It also eliminates the need of upfront capital expense on new computers, hardware, and automatic updates and upgrades. Release
