LOS ANGELES, CA, Mar 14, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- dinCloud, a leading cloud services provider of hosted virtual desktops, has expanded dinHVD, the company's Hosted Virtual Desktop service to accommodate self-managed customer initiatives and a range of budgetary parameters.
"A virtual desktop behaves like a traditional computer but the operating system, applications and data reside in the data center, not on the hard-drive of each device," explains Saad Shahzad, chief strategy officer of dinCloud. "With the introduction of varied service levels and customization, dinCloud is able to put the streamlined benefits of virtual desktops in the hands of business at a predictable monthly rate of as little as $1 per desktop, per day."

In addition, dinCloud's one of a kind team of experienced licensing specialists ensure software roll-outs comply with the complex requirements of cloud-based software deployments.
