Dizzion Desktop as a Service brings advanced VMware Horizon capabilities to IBM Cloud

For many years, VMware has been involved with cutting-edge cloud-based desktop and application virtualization platforms that change the way organizations think about delivering these core services to their end users. Today, Dizzion and IBM Cloud announced that they have launched a next-generation Desktop-as-a-Service platform called Dizzion DaaS on IBM Cloud, which leverages VMware Horizon.

Dizzion DaaS on IBM Cloud addresses one of the top IT pain points for 2021: enabling long-term or permanent remote work by delivering a secure, compliant and high-performance end-user computing environment. The new offering accomplishes this by combining the enterprise capabilities of VMware Horizon, the power and protection of IBM Cloud, and Dizzion’s proprietary COSMOS Control Center (C3) orchestration engine into a single DaaS service that can deliver cloud desktops in a secure, easy to manage and cost-effective way.

Customers have the option to choose how much of the offering is managed by Dizzion and may deploy from any IBM Cloud availability zone across the globe. This includes a turnkey solution called Dizzion Managed DaaS on IBM Cloud, where customers can set it and forget it, relying on Dizzion to manage the entire platform – with IBM Cloud infrastructure and bundled Microsoft licensing included – on their behalf.

Dizzion’s platform is built on the full VMware Horizon platform, on top the VMware SDDC stack. As such, it offers additional functionality not available in Horizon Cloud on IBM Cloud, such as VMware Instant Clones and App Volumes, along with the following enhancements:

  • Bundled licensing that includes the Dizzion cloud desktops, IBM Cloud infrastructure and Horizon licensing
  • Concurrent desktop pricing model for maximum financial efficiency
  • Real-time C3 insights and analytics
  • Option for managed cloud desktop compliance (HIPAA, PCI, GDPR and SOC 2 Type II)
  • Performance add-ons such as NVIDIA GPUs for media-intense workloads
  • Flexible purchasing – direct from Dizzion or via the IBM Cloud Marketplace
  • Proactive 24x7x365 support
  • Industry-leading 99.99% SLA

In fact, Dizzion DaaS on IBM Cloud offers so much value, and is such an easy migration for existing Horizon Cloud on IBM Cloud customers, that we’ve decided to make it our preferred platform for customers that want to place desktop virtualization resources on IBM Cloud. Therefore, we’re encouraging all Horizon Cloud on IBM Cloud customers to migrate to Dizzion DaaS on IBM Cloud. We have dedicated teams standing by to provide a demo and answer any technical questions you may have. Migrating to Dizzion Managed DaaS on IBM Cloud is fast and painless as both offerings are built on the common underlying VMware technology.

If you are just getting started in your journey to cloud desktops and you want to evaluate this full-featured DaaS offering that combines the best that Dizzion, IBM Cloud and VMware have to offer, talk to your VMware account manager or head over to for more information.
