dinCloud, a cloud services provider that helps organizations rapidly migrate to the cloud, today announced dinRDS (remote desktop services), powered by its secure virtual private data center infrastructure. Part of its line of hosted workspace products, dinRDS allows organizations to roll out applications and desktop workspaces rapidly and at scale.
“No matter the industry, many businesses face uncertain growth trajectory and budgetary constraints. While certain cloud models may seem overly complex or cost-prohibitive, remote desktop services present a simpler, cost-effective alternative for virtual desktop delivery,” said Mike Chase, CTO, dinCloud. “With dinRDS, companies can easily deploy multiple, session-based desktops on demand to a group of users without dedicating resources as you typically would for DaaS (Desktop as a Service). This reduces the overall cost for the organization.”
dinRDS is compatible with:
• Microsoft Windows
• Google Chrome
• Linux operating systems
“dinRDS can help customers simplify their infrastructure. With added security measures, cost savings, transparency, and portability, dinCloud’s remote desktop services give users the opportunity to take control of their cloud with peace of mind that their data is secure,” said Michael Osterman, president, Osterman Research, Inc.
Main features of dinRDS include:
• Multiple deployment options (persistent or non-persistent)
• Enhanced protocol and multimedia support
• Full USB and network printing and scanning
• Flexibility – scale resources up or down based on company needs
• Security – equipped with a dedicated firewall and SSL encryption
“dinCloud’s remote desktop services offer an ideal virtual desktop delivery model for organizations seeking a simple, easy-to-use interface for their users,” said Deni Connor, principal analyst, Storage/Systems Strategies NOW. “dinRDS is also a great alternative in helping to bypass the compatibility issues associated with legacy versions of Windows.”

dinCloud’s remote desktop services are available for about $20 per user, in addition to resource costs associated with the servers to manage the platform, and any particular Microsoft licensing. For more information about dinRDS, visit: https://www.dincloud.com/hosted-workspaces/dinrds.
