“…Google could acquire a company that had a cloud presence already. For example, dinCloud already uses KVM, the same hypervisor as Google Cloud Engine and dinCloud heavily uses Google Chrome Apps for the client. It's a match made in heaven for an enterprise Chromebook play, especially for companies that are deploying traditional desktops for a few straggler applications.”

“The word from multiple analysts is doing this (cloud services) is not easy because employees want and need seamless access to resources, with no latency, no data burps but the companies that have a handle on this, such as dinCloud, according to Karen Kelley, a 451 Research analyst, are in the pole position speeding into the remainder of 2012.”

“Overall, dinCloud was fast, and the intake process was professional and showed skills at varying architectural possibilities. If we wanted to rapidly join a flock of policy-enforced, yet generic Windows 7 desktops together, dinCloud would be our choice.”

“The key is that this is not just a product release. Rather, dinServer – and, arguably, similar platforms from other suppliers – gives agents a way to capitalize on businesses' growing demand for virtualization. Virtualization eliminates the need for expensive, on-site hardware such as servers and desktop computers. It lets organizations use thin clients, for example, or tablets, and store all applications and information in the cloud, in a data center run by a third party. Best of all, selling virtualization earns residual commissions and you don’t have to be a techie to profit.”
