REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 7, 2013--
Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center
company, today announced the company will present at International
Telecoms Week (ITW) 2013, being held May 13-15, 2013, in Chicago, IL.
Equinix’s global general manager of Networks & Mobility, Jim Poole, will
be participating in a cloud desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) panel
presentation, titled “Moving End User Computing to the Cloud to
Accelerate Cloud-Based Revenues,” on Tuesday, May 14 at 9 a.m. CDT.
Presented in partnership with NetApp, Desktone and Cisco, the session
will focus on the emerging DaaS opportunity, which enables the delivery
of virtual desktops from the public cloud via service providers.
IDC predicts that the hosted virtual desktop market will have an 85
percent compound annual growth rate over the next five years. Cloud
workloads at multi-tenant data centers (MTDC) are growing at three times
the rate of traditional data centers, while telecommunications services
consumed by cloud companies grew 41 percent in the last two years. By
following the migration to MTDCs and aligning with the right partners to
build a differentiated solution, network service providers are in the
perfect position to grow revenue by expanding their highest-margin
services faster than previously possible.
Topics to be discussed in the ITW panel session include:
The service bundle, what it entails and why it’s considered
“revenues in a box”
Key benefits of DaaS, such as low latency, strong security,
accelerated time to market and location flexibility
3rd party validation
An abbreviated version of the panel presentation is available here.
