Suppose the underlying tin is owned and operated by (say) VMware (DaaS Wholesale) Inc based (say) in the US.
Suppose their sole customer, based in (say) Luxembourg, is (say) VMware (DaaS Retail) Inc.
The end user contracts with the Luxembourg company for their desktop services.
Only the big boys can play this kind of game because only the big boys have sufficiently expensive lawyers.
Is this a silly idea? (NB it's not a million miles from the corporate inter-country games played by the likes of Amazon and Costa and... Or even the regulator-blinding games played in the UK by BT Retail and the entirely unrelated BT Wholesale and BT Openreach).
