Workspace-as-a-Service Startup Looking for Beta Partners

Channel entrepreneur and Workspace-as-a-Service expert Michael Fraser is looking for beta partners for a new cloud workspace platform.

The startup is called Infinite Ops Inc., based in Mountlake Terrace, Wash., a suburb of Seattle.

The Infinite Ops Console Cloud is designed to simplify the process for partners and IT departments to deliver virtual workspaces powered by virtual machine-based servers in the Microsoft Azure, Google Compute Engine and Amazon Web Services public clouds. The platform includes an API for integrating with other cloud providers, and the company is working directly on a VMware integration with vSphere and vCloud.

"Infinite Ops was founded to provide IT service providers a very simple platform to add the whole stack around cloud workspaces to their business. I look at the cloud workspace as the main focal point of where service providers are going with their customers," Fraser said in an interview with RCP.

Fraser's design goal is to turn deployment of virtual workspaces for one user to thousands of users into a three-step wizard-based process that takes less than an hour.

The console supports mobile and desktop browsers, includes dashboards for monitoring multiple cloud deployments and will have an app store in a later version, Fraser said. A selection of cloud deployment templates allows for quick deployment for both Microsoft Remote Desktop Services and Teradici PCoIP protocol.

General availability is scheduled for the beginning of April, Fraser said, but interested partners can sign up for early access on the Infinite Ops homepage. He said the platform is geared for the service provider channel with multi-tenancy built into the product.

"Ideal partners are IT service providers, MSPs and CSPs who have clients they are already bringing to the cloud and who are looking to get to market with a platform that can simplify and speed up their ability to get workspaces in the cloud with no cloud engineering or development required," Fraser said.
