VMware launches its Horizon Desktop as a Service offering

VMware today announced the release of VMware Horizon DaaS, its Desktop as a Service offering running on top of vCloud Hybrid Service, VMware’s owned and operated public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) service.

VMware will offer desktops through Windows Server environments, using the SPLA licensing terms. But it will also offer Windows Client Desktops, where users should bring their own SA licenses. Support for Remote Desktop Services will be added later this year.
