Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 17, 2009
VDIworks, a leading provider of virtual desktop management and enablement products, announced today that it would be exhibiting at the GITEX 2009 IT convention in Dubai. In recent years, GITEX has grown to be one of the world's largest Information Technology events. According to the show's organizers, close to 130,000 attendees are expected this year, demonstrating the increasing reach and importance of the show.
"We think the IT market in the Middle East is particularly exciting. Companies here are undergoing significant growth and are undertaking large-scale expansion of their IT footprint," said Amir Husain, President and CEO of VDIworks. "And we're very impressed with the environmentally conscious way this growth is taking place. Organizations in the region are very interested in reducing their energy consumption and fielding truly 'green' IT solutions."
In recent years, the Middle East - particularly the United Arab Emirates - has been leading the way in environmentally friendly, Green innovation. In 2007, the Government of Abu Dhabi became the first to announce that it would achieve the goal of a zero-carbon, zero-waste city in the near future. Since then, massive projects such as the Masdar Green City initative, solar farms and the world's first positive-energy building, have been undertaken.
One of the key benefits of VDIworks' Virtual Desktop technology is that it drastically reduces energy consumption. Conventional PCs are typically power-hungry, consuming between 200-400W of energy, but a VDI implementation based on the VDIworks platform cuts this down to a mere 15-20W per desktop.
VDIworks provides a complete end-to-end solution for desktop virtualization, including connection brokering, virtual machine management, physical server and thinclient management, health, inventory and power control. The inexpensive software solution works with products from all major servers, thin clients and desktop remoting protocols to deliver virtual desktops with an excellent user experience and rock-solid manageability.
The VDIworks solution will be on display at booth G6-49 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, between October 18th and 23rd. For more information or to register for an evaluation, please visit: http://www.vdiworks.com
