VMware & Google: Windows Desktops & Apps as a Cloud Service on Chromebooks
This looks like a way to get cheap devices that can meet your Microsoft software demands.Google and VMware are working together to modernize corporate desktops for the mobile cloud era by providing businesses with secure, cloud access to Windows applications, data and desktops on Google Chromebooks. Together, we can enable users to use Google Chromebooks and Google Chromebox to access all their corporate content from the web/cloud, including a full Windows desktop and applications delivered from on premise/private cloud or public cloud via the VMware Horizon DaaS platform: http://vmware.com/products/daas.html. This means customers can truly adopt the mobile-cloud using cloud-based devices for users with no end point management and cloud-based services including Windows desktops and apps.
