IndependenceIT Sees Strong Momentum and Over 330% Growth in 2014 with Cloud Workspace Suite

IndependenceIT today announced several business milestones, including key partnerships, channel ecosystem expansion and impressive growth over the past 12 months as demand for its Cloud Workspace® software exceeded expectations. Leading the growth metrics for 2014, seat count for IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite rose more than 330% year-over-year, easily beating IDC’s forecast for compound annual growth rate (CAGR) forecast for IT Cloud Services of 26.4%, which is already many times that of the IT industry overall1.

With the increasing demand for mobile and device-independent access to applications and data, IT service providers are seeking competitive solutions to capitalize on these requirements and further improve infrastructure. There are also appeals by the business community for cloud services that bring greater scalability and agility to the workplace and allow users to work anywhere, anytime and on any device. The adoption of IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite is a testament to the company’s competitive advantage in a high-growth market as organizations weigh the options in this space.

Cloud Workspace Suite (CWS) is a cloud and hypervisor agnostic services enablement platform for the delivery of applications and desktop-as-as service (DaaS) that allows IT service providers, independent software vendors (ISVs) and enterprise IT departments to provision, manage and monitor complete workspaces in the cloud, transforming business operations by delivering applications, desktops and entire corporate IT systems as a high-performance, secure cloud service.

2014 has been an exceptional year for the company as the number of booked seats increased substantially over the previous year to reach new heights, boosting top line sales by more than 70%. Additionally, the channel focused cloud workspace software developer doubled its service provider partner ecosystem year-over-year, boosting the availability of its technology to organizations around the world, and introduced several new infrastructure partners including Microsoft Azure, Artisan Infrastructure, GCI Managed Cloud Solutions and Google Compute Engine.

“Traditionally, barriers to success for desktop virtualization have included complexity as well as a multitude of moving parts. For those implementations comprised of multiple vendors and products, components include the hypervisor, storage, desktop virtualization vendor platform, provisioning mechanism, and much more,” said Jo Harder, Senior Virtualization Analyst, The Virtualization Practice. “IndependenceIT has succeeded in simplifying desktop virtualization to the extent that the full set of components is entirely incorporated into the unified platform and desktop2.”

“Identified as one of the Top 10 Strategic Technologies for 2014, workspace-as-a-service is changing the way IT is consumed for the betterment of businesses of every size,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “Cloud Workspace Suite was designed from the beginning with the service provider in mind. This has established CWS as a marquee platform for service providers, offering tremendous advantages from a management and cost perspective. As a result, adoption has been impressive and our forecasts for future growth are extremely positive.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
