HP Cloud is pleased to welcome desktopsites to our HP Public Cloud solution portfolio. Their Konect Elite solution offers SMB customers an application and virtual desktop delivery solution to local, remote or mobile users.  I spoke to Kane Micheletti, VP of Sales & Marketing at desktopsites about their solution and use of the HP Public Cloud.

About desktopsites

desktopsites is a leading developer of innovative and cost effective Windows®  virtual private cloud computing solutions for small and mid-size businesses ("SMBs"). While many software vendors have found success in serving large enterprises, many are struggling to understand how best to serve SMBs.


SMBs are key to the success of the North American economy. More than 99% of all employer firms are SMBs with less than 1000 employees, and they employ more than 54% of all employees. SMBs often do not have access to the resources and capital of large enterprises yet they face the same competitive pressures driving technology adoption and go-to-market innovation. Regardless of the size of your organization, the competitive demands of a global economy are very real. Being an SMB shouldn't preclude your business from having the tools it needs to be successful.


At desktopsites, their stated mission is clear:

"To become the premier developer and innovator of turnkey cloud computing software solutions that enable small and mid-size businesses to excel."


Their mission is about more than technological innovation. It is about recognizing the demands of today's economy and delivering solutions to address the many challenges that SMBs face on a day-to-day basis.
