Craig Keefner's insight:
Specifically, even after looking into using Microsoft's Office 365 in 2013 with a HIPAA BAA available,Molina Healthcare Inc. of Calif. chose to just stick with its on-premises storage product. Molina Healthcare CIO Rick Hopfer told the Journal that his organization could not come to an agreement with Microsoft on the specifics of the BAA. While Hopfer didn't explain exactly what the issue was within the BAA that prevented Molina from using Microsoft 365, the decision illustrates an important point: While cloud vendors offering BAAs is an important step to cloud adoption in healthcare, some organizations may have precise needs that they don't believe are covered in a BAA. Hopfer made it clear that this didn't mean that Molina had no interest in a Microsoft, or even Google, BAA down the line, but keeping its on-premises made sense for now.

Craig Keefner's insight:
PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 10, 2014) - VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today launched VMware™ Horizon DaaS®, a new cloud-based desktop service that delivers cost-effective enterprise-class virtual desktops running on VMware vCloud® Hybrid Service™. The service offers the industry's first hybrid desktop as a service (DaaS) solution that gives customers the ability to blend public cloud desktops and on-premise VMware Horizon View™ private cloud desktops for a seamless end-user experience. Following a few simple steps, IT can provision, deploy and manage high quality, full Windows desktops to end-users that can be accessed from laptops, desktops, zero/thin clients, Chromebooks, tablets (Apple iOS, Google Android) and mobile devices. "Having pioneered the market for DaaS back in 2007, VMware continues to lead by introducing industry-first capabilities and technology innovations to deliver a best-in-class service and solution to our customers," said Sumit Dhawan, vice president and general manager, desktop products, End-User Computing, VMware. "Our experience working with customers deploying DaaS the last several years have shown that the majority prefers a blended environment with both on-premise and cloud desktops. However, very few solutions in the market can deliver a seamless end-user experience across multiple clouds like VMware Horizon™ DaaS®." VMware Horizon DaaS Unlike other DaaS offerings that only offer Windows server or Remote Desktop Services (RDS) environments, VMware Horizon DaaS supports both types of desktops in addition to full Windows Client Desktops -- all at an affordable price point. The service provides an adaptive user experience across devices, locations, and media for consistent quality and exceptional user experience. It simplifies the delivery of high quality desktops and applications as a cloud service so customers can quickly bring up desktops from the cloud for any number of end-users in just a few clicks. VMware Horizon DaaS supports enterprise mobility by enabling end-user access to full Windows desktops and applications through the cloud -- from anywhere, at anytime -- using desktops or laptops (PC or Mac), zero/thin clients, Chromebooks or mobile devices (Android or iOS). As a result, the total cost of ownership is significantly reduced by offloading operational overhead and eliminating upfront capital costs. With monthly subscription fees that are predictable and flexible, customers can increase the speed of deployment with an architecture built for the right blend of on-premise and off-premise/cloud virtual desktops. VMware Horizon DaaS is built on the VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, a platform that enables customers to extend the same applications, networking, management, operations and tools across both on-premise and off-premise environments. By leveraging vCloud Hybrid Service, Horizon DaaS enables customers to extend their data center seamlessly to the cloud and deploy additional hybrid applications alongside their hybrid desktop environment. "Businesses today are betting big on the cloud and Chromebooks used with web applications like Google Apps for Business fit the way we work today," said Caesar Sengupta, vice president, product management, Google. "VMware Horizon™ DaaS® helps companies transition to the cloud while supporting existing Windows applications. Chromebooks are secure, manageable and cost effective, making them a great option for businesses with the impending end of support and security updates on Windows XP." Options To Fit Any Customer The VMware Horizon DaaS cloud service is built on the VMware Horizon DaaS platform, the industry's first end-to-end software platform for desktop-as-a-service. The platform includes the industry's leading secure multi-tenant broker and orchestrator, mobile and cloud-optimized Horizon View desktops, and key components of the world's most widely used virtualization and cloud platform -- VMware vSphere® and vCenter™. With today's announcement, customers now have a choice between three unique virtual desktop deployment models from a single vendor to match their specific needs. They include:Off-Premise Public Cloud Desktops - VMware Horizon DaaS is ideal for organizations that want to offload desktop virtualization completely to a third party service provider and move from a CAPEX to an OPEX model. It enables a new way for IT to deliver Windows desktops and applications that goes beyond the walls of the corporate datacenter. IT can gain greater control, security and flexibility while embracing cloud economics. End-users are able to access cloud desktops from any device, anywhere. On-Premise Private Cloud Desktops - Customers who prefer desktop services from an on-premise private cloud deployment to enable end-user freedom and IT management and control can use VMware Horizon View. By delivering secure access to applications and data to any device -- when and where users need it -- on-premise private cloud desktops give end-users maximum mobility and flexibility. Hybrid Cloud Desktops - For many organizations, one size does not fit all so VMware Horizon DaaS is also ideal for organizations that want the flexibility of deploying on-premise and off-premise virtual desktops. It provides a seamless end-user experience across multiple clouds for end-users and quick deployment along with simple management for IT. "Modernizing desktop infrastructure gives our technology teams greater mobility and access to solutions that serve students and student-facing advisors," said Claudiu Budurlean, director of IT, client-computing architecture, Apollo Education Group, Inc. "DaaS allows our IT organization to accelerate the adoption of a modern virtual desktop infrastructure in an efficient way. With DaaS, our IT administrators need not worry about provisioning hardware, software, design and implementation of enterprise desktops; this frees-up valuable time for our teams to focus on other student-facing IT projects within our organization." Opportunities for Partners VMware Horizon DaaS will be delivered by partners and compatible with other VMware-based cloud services. VMware Horizon DaaS can be sold the same way as on-premise VMware virtual desktops with a standard SKU, and partners can retain the billing relationship with customers. In addition, cloud service providers can deliver value added services around the desktops to increase market opportunity. "Customers want simple deployment and management of enterprise cloud desktops without the capital expense required to modernize their desktop infrastructure and VMware Horizon™ DaaS® helps them achieve this," said Sam Gross, chief technology officer, CompuCom. "VMware Horizon™ DaaS® wrapped with additional solutions from CompuCom will enable customers to offload many of the desktop administration responsibilities for a truly hosted offering. For CompuCom -- who is positioned as a, 'Leader' in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for End-User Outsourcing Services, North America -- partners like this help us further strengthen our value to clientsi." Pricing and Availability VMware Horizon DaaS is available immediately from VMware or through select channel partners and resellers in the United States with global expansion expected later in the year. Pricing starts at $35 per month per user for a full Windows client experience.
