"We are pleased that Computer Lab International is helping to deliver added value to customers with innovative technology combined with the significant business benefits of VMware virtualization, including lower capital and operating expenses, business continuity, strengthened security and reduced energy consumption."
"It was critical that we establish formal compatibility with VMware view for two primary reasons," says Jason McGeough, Director of Product Development for CLI. "First off, at CLI the voice of the customer rings the loudest, and it was critical for us to react to the request of our customer base to formalize our compatibility on the VMware HCL. Second, we need to ensure that we are in position to go to market with VMware View on the desktop, capitalizing on fantastic VMware View features like linked clones and the desktop composer, These features will continue to drive the virtual desktop by reducing the amount of backend hardware required to deploy a virtual desktop infrastructure."
