Toshiba’s first cloud offering will come with a twist – users will be able to customise the remote hardware being used to host the virtual desktop and storage service.

Users will be able to configure a remote desktop’s processor, storage capacity and memory, which will determine the response time of applications and performance of the service, the company said today.

The remote desktop can be accessed through a browser on PCs, smartphones and tablets, said Terry Cronin, vice president of business development and channel marketing at Toshiba’s Cloud Services Division. Toshiba is partnering with Citrix and VMware for the service.
