Vodacom Chooses VMware to Deliver Cloud Service
Vodacom Office in the Cloud is a managed virtual desktop solution which allows customers to rent their hardware, applications, Operating System and Voice Over IP (VOIP). The company looked at a number of different technologies, including open source technologies, before making the decision to adopt VMware View technology, one of the key elements that enables Vodacom to deliver Office in the Cloud. Vodacom did not only choose the VMware View capability, which is the entry point from a thin client into the back end. Vodacom Office in the Cloud is a fully Opex-based service, allowing a company to rent everything. This gives IT managers the capability to see exactly how much each user or branch office is costing the company on a monthly basis.
