IndependenceIT On the "Tremendous Growth" of DaaS
IndependenceIT CEO Outlines Vision, Benefits to Companies & Users

Seth Bostock On the "Tremendous Growth" of DaaS

Seth Bostock (pictured below) is CEO of IndependenceIT, a company based in Allentown, PA in the Lehigh Valley that encourages its users to "think outside the boxes." It is a pioneer in the idea of Desktop-as-a-Service (which can also be though of as Workspace-as-a-Service).

Its core service is Cloud Workspace, designed to deliver apps, desktops, and entire corporate IT systems as a high-performance, secure cloud service. Cloud Workspace users can work from anywhere at anytime, and on any device with the same experience, in this environment.

We had a few questions for Seth about the company and what it does:

Cloud Computing Journal: How have you seen the idea of Workspace- or Desktop-as-a-Service grow over the past few years?

Seth Bostock: IndependenceIT has seen tremendous growth-337% through mid-year 2014)-- in Workspace-as-a-Service.

Scale and integration have been key challenges for IT Administrators when implementing application and desktop virtualization. This has limited the promise of what the technology can deliver for many organizations.

The Cloud Workspace Suite solves this problem up front with a single pane of glass to manage all workloads across any public, private or hybrid cloud.  Coupled with the powerful API set for ease of integration with our customers' existing operations and business support tools, simplifying deployment of the CWS platform while speeding time to market.

CCJ: What are the most important aspects of DaaS to your customers?

Seth: As our Customers are the Channel and IT Administrators, the most important aspects of DaaS is how to effectively scale and manage workloads across multiple platforms and domains. IndependenceIT's automation is focused on taking all of the common, repetitive, time consuming and complicated tasks associated with a virtual environment and making them simple and efficient

IndependenceIT focuses its automation in three areas:

  • Initial platform installation, to speed time to market with new single tenant or multi-tenant deployment

  • New end user deployments, to rapidly deploy the entire end user environment in minutes speeding time to revenue

  • Operations and management of the environment, to simplify IT administration and user management for greater efficiency and scale.

CCJ: How is the continued proliferation of phones and tablets driving the need for workspaces and desktops in the cloud?

Seth: The influx of mobile devices throughout the enterprise, pervasive access to high-speed connectivity and more distributed workforce environments are causing companies to look to the cloud for desktop and application enablement.

The Cloud Workspace Suite provides location and device independence, allowing organizations to capitalize on the productivity advantages of mobility - all without compromise to security, performance or control.
