Rackspace Hosting Adds Virtual Desktops

San Antonio-based hosting provider Rackspace Hosting said this morning that it has rolled out a new, virtual desktop offering. The firm said its new platform will allow customers to host their virtual desktops on either a dedicated or cloud solution. Pricing on the new offering was not disclosed. Virtual desktops are virtual, desktop PCs hosted in the cloud, which allow for easier maintenance and management of those PCs. Virtual desktops are generally used by large enterprises to allow users access to PC software via thin clients.
