NetApp announced the general availability of Spot PC, the managed cloud Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) Solution, for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and their customers. Spot PC delivers a cloud desktop solution with security, automation, observability, and optimization features designed for the public cloud addressing the evolving business landscape that includes remote, hybrid, and distributed environments.

Spot PC will be available for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and their customers, delivering a cloud desktop solution fully optimized for security, privacy, and infrastructure efficiency, with predictable pricing to reduce overall support burdens.

With the rapid acceleration of hybrid work environments, organizations are pressured to evolve their IT infrastructure to support remote work environments, build distributed teams, and enable hybrid offices while navigating supply chain issues and cyber security threats. In fact, according to Gartner’s 2021 Market Guide for Desktop as a Service (DaaS), Gartner expects the global DaaS market to grow nearly 253 percent from 2021 to 2024.

Current solutions to deliver remote desktops based on traditional virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) were not designed for the public cloud, making it significantly more challenging to administer, manage, and troubleshoot. Delivering remote desktop services with existing solutions can be time-consuming and complex to deploy, migrate to, and manage. Spot PC’s predictable pricing will reduce overall support burdens and allow existing staff to deliver and support many more desktops, ultimately increasing profitability.

As Anthony Lye, Executive Vice President of Public Cloud Services at NetApp, explains:

“Service providers and enterprises today require the right tools and solutions that are built for the cloud for optimal efficiency of their resources. With Spot PC, we’re equipping MSPs and enterprises to bring differentiated, profitable cloud desktop solutions to market to meet growing demand from their customers and enabling them to deliver flexible, secure, and fit-for-purpose remote work experiences to a variety of users across multiple locations and regions.”

Spot PC is a comprehensive as-a-service solution enabling MSPs and enterprises to provide secure, reliable, and fully optimized cloud desktops to support a broad range of needs.

Spot PC provides MSPs and enterprises with the ability to:

  • Deliver cloud desktops with speed, flexibility, and agility across multiple locations and regions to support a wide range of tasks for knowledge and technical computing users
  • Ensure that cloud desktop environments meet security, availability, and performance requirements without overburdening IT staff
  • Provide predictable cost structure using patent-pending AI and machine learning automated optimization

Spot PC is available now, direct from NetApp for enterprises and service providers with a fixed pricing structure per user per month.
