It’s evident that Desktone has some numbers. No other virtualization startups so far closed monumental partnerships as soon as it left the stealth mode like this one.
On April 21, at company launch, one of the biggest US phone carrier, Verizon, revealed the plan to deliver virtual desktops managed by the Desktone platform.
Today, at company Partner Program launch, one of the biggest OEM in the world, HP, beaten Verizon on time and announces the deal as the first partner.
It’s worth to highlight that currently Desktone is only supporting VMware Infrastructure 3.x as the back-end hypervisor, so the startup fortune is the VMware fortune right now. But there are clear plans to support XenServer (also because Citrix is an investor) and Hyper-V.
