DaaS/VDI from @Rapid_Scale #fixVDA

“According to Forbes,

“2014 is the first year the majority of workloads will be on the cloud as 51% will be processed in the cloud versus 49% in the traditional IT space.”’

2014 also appears to be the year of Citrix vs VMWare for end-user computing, w/Amazon thrown in for good measure.

Regarding RapidScale’s solution, it’s probably Citrix-based using skinned Windows Server desktops rather than actual Windows desktop OS (“you can “virtualize” about 97% of the applications available”).

…not sure of price since need to request a quote but good to see another big cloud player in the virtual desktop space, especially one with a good marketing budget.  From Virtual Desktops: What Are They And Why Should You Care? – RapidScale Cloud Computing Solutions,
