DeskStream Acquires Northern Irish Cloud Startup WorldDesk


YourStory’s TechSparks 2010 and 2011 TECH 30 startup DeskStream acquires North Irish cloud and virtualization software startup WorldDesk and will adopt the WorldDesk name going forward.

DeskStream is a leading Dynamic Virtual Desktop (DVD) platform delivers legacy Windows applications in the app store format to any device with any platform. While the installed applications are struck to the end point device for management, the app store applications are dependent on the corresponding platform for their execution. But DeskStream has found a way to execute the legacy Windows applications without requiring any installation and deliver them like app store model to Windows and non-Windows platforms. DeskStream’s DVD platform disrupts desktop computing, taking it away from traditional methods and setups. DeskStream’s DVD also brings into light desktop computing on mobile internet devices.

With WorldDesk’s acquisition DeskStream will take control of the start-up's cloud-based workspace delivery platform prototype built on Dropbox.
