Ingram Micro Cloud Teams Up with Samsung in DaaS Initiative

Published On: October 23, 2017Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Ingram Micro Inc. is helping drive consumer adoption of mobile virtual desktop technology with the launch of a simplified cloud store for Samsung DeX customers. The solution automates the setup of Amazon WorkSpaces and Microsoft Windows Desktop as a Service (DaaS) for Samsung Galaxy Note8, Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Samsung DeX users.

By combining Samsung DeX with Amazon WorkSpaces, users can access their own Microsoft Windows virtual desktop, files and applications without the need for advanced IT capabilities.

“Using our robust platform and technical expertise, the Ingram Micro Cloud services team has created this simplified and automated solution for Samsung mobile users to easily get set up and use a virtual Windows desktop,“ said Tarik Faouzi, VP, Global Cloud Partners and Solutions at Ingram Micro. “This collaboration demonstrates Ingram Micro Cloud’s commitment to empower every user and partner by reducing the complexities of access to innovative cloud technologies.”

“Running all of your Android and Windows programs from your Samsung Galaxy Note8 and S8/S8+ on Samsung DeX is something you have to experience to believe,” said Mok Oh, VP, Business Development at Samsung Electronics. “We have worked with Amazon Web Services and Ingram Micro Cloud to make this accessible to more users, enabling you to be more productive from anywhere.”

Amazon WorkSpaces will also be available to Ingram Micro’s reseller partners in the US later this year. This will allow Ingram Micro partners to create a complete mobile desktop solution for their business customers by bundling the Galaxy Note8 or Galaxy S8/S8+ and DeX Station with Amazon WorkSpaces, along with their choice of additional cloud services from the Ingram Micro portfolio.
