[ORANGE COUNTY, January 14th, 2013] RapidScale, a global leader in cloud services, has joined the Masergy Marketplace of on-net partners. Masergy Communications Inc. is a global leader in managed networking and cloud services. Masergy facilitates the rapid deployment of on-net partner services by eliminating the physical interconnections and cables typically required. When a customer selects a Marketplace partner, Masergy creates a virtual path for instant, software-enabled access to the partner’s cloud service.
RapidScale no longer sees the computer as being just about applications and operating systems. We see the computer as a virtual application platform built to deliver any application on any device, anywhere in the world. In order to achieve that we had to focus on building the business computer from the ground up, which is what they’ve done.
CloudOffice, the “Next Generation of Business” computer, is a ground breaking solution that brings together core business applications and business vertical applications. CloudOffice is application agnostic and does not have the inherent limitations that existing solutions like Server Hosted Virtual Desktop (SHVD) have. RapidScale has also layered in a fully managed CloudCompliance application to meet business compliance requirements.
- Onboard tenants in a point and click fashion
- Three step process (Create Customer, Enable Services, Provision Users)
- The first completely non-persistent desktop – one true “golden image” across user accounts
- CloudOffice Includes: Microsoft Office Professional, Unlimited Storage, 24x7x365 We Care Support, Adobe Suite, CloudCompliance, iApps, Microsoft Visio, Citrix ShareFile and CloudApps (Business Apps as a Service)
- CloudOffice can easily integrate plug-ins and add-ons with full application integration
- Application store/library for quicker application packaging and provisioning
- CloudStrength allows users to actively monitor real-time performance of their desktop in order to eliminate connectivity concerns
Randy Jeter, co-founder and CEO of RapidScale, sees the partnership with Masergy as integral in the development of CloudMPLS on a global basis. CloudMPLS is something Mr. Jeter has been speaking about for years now at carrier trade shows and cloud events. CloudMPLS is the integration of three core services, packet prioritized private network connectivity (MPLS), compute services (Servers and Storage) and business applications (CloudApps – Business Apps as a Service).
RapidScale is seen as a global leader in cloud services and a great company to work for and do business with. Organizationally, they are focused on the convergence of Desktop as a Service and Business Apps as a Service. That integration is the basis for being the “Next Generation Computer.” No longer will the computer be a device you’re chained to, but rather, a secure place in our cloud. In order to achieve that end result, RapidScale has learned to think outside of the box and find brilliant technology minds. They have set forth an innovative plan to develop the fastest and most advanced global application network in the world. With RapidScale, you can use any device, store anything, and access any app from anywhere in the world. For more information, visit rapidscale.net
