Anunta is making its DesktopReady DaaS product available in Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Inclusion in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace greatly expands the reach of DesktopReady and its enterprise-grade virtual desktops to the greater Microsoft end-user community

GAITHERSBURG, Maryland -- December 16, 2020 -- Anunta, a global leader in cloud and desktop virtualization technologies, today officially launched DesktopReadyTM in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. DesktopReady is a fully-managed Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) with built-in automation and monitoring that simplifies the delivery and management of cloud desktops for the unique needs of SMBs.

DesktopReady will now be available to more than 4 million monthly active shoppers that currently frequent the popular site. Developed using Windows Virtual Desktop infrastructure within the Microsoft Azure cloud, DesktopReady is easy to install, configure and start using within minutes

“We are excited that DesktopReady is now available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace,” says Ashish Bambroo, Senior Vice President and General Manager with Anunta Tech. “This move puts us in front of customers actively shopping for Microsoft Azure solutions. In these trying times, many SMBs are looking for a solution that is secure, simple to deploy and comes fully-managed with 24/7 support. With a recent IDC survey reporting that over 70% of small businesses are currently accelerating digital transformation in response to the pandemic, Anunta is optimistic that having DesktopReady in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace will result in stronger demand for our cloud desktop solution.”

DesktopReady offers many advantages that SMBs can't enjoy when attempting to manage their own IT assets including:

  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO): DesktopReady lowers TCO of IT by as much as 50%.
  • Hand-free IT maintenance: DesktopReady provides a quick and easy migration of existing desktops to the cloud with no additional in-house IT support required.
  • Enhanced security: DesktopReady provides enterprise-level security allowing for secure end-user access from anywhere, at any time and on any device.
  • Improved end-user experience: DesktopReady targets to provide 99.99% application availability leading to increased user up-time, productivity, and satisfaction.

“With the global pandemic continuing to make digital transformation a priority among U.S. businesses, solutions like Anunta DesktopReady are giving SMBs an easier way to move their employee desktops safely and securely to the Microsoft Azure cloud,” said Lisa James, Azure Partner Strategy Manager. “The deep integration Anunta DesktopReady has with Windows Virtual Desktop within Azure will ensure that more SMBs can focus their valuable time and attention on their daily operations rather than on managing complex IT infrastructure.”

DesktopReady is a comprehensive and fully functional Windows 10 desktop on Azure cloud. The highly secure cloud desktops are built on platforms that are PCI, HIPAA and SOC2 compliant and serve the needs of SMBs that want to manage their employee desktops in an affordable, secure and flexible manner. The fully managed DaaS solution offers 24/7 service desk support and infrastructure monitoring.
