Starter Pack Includes Cisco Unified Computing System and 10 User Licenses of VMWare View Premier

Force 3, delivering the best in federal data center, unified communications and security solutions, today announced the Velocity VDI Bundle, a starter pack solution available on the SEWP IV contract that allows customers to deploy and test up to ten virtual desktops in their own environment. Force 3 built this Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solution to help its customers begin to see the significant operational cost savings, increased manageability, enhanced security and additional data protection that are benefits of migrating to a virtual environment.

“Many of our customers, specifically in the federal space, are reluctant to make the move to virtual desktops because they are afraid of the risks and have yet to see the benefits of VDI,” said Sudhir Verma, Director of Data Center Solutions for Force 3. “By creating Velocity VDI with VMWare View, we can show them – in their own environment – that the risks such as user experience and cost are no longer barriers to moving to a virtualized environment.”

The Velocity VDI Bundle includes ten VMWare View Premier user licenses with one year of platinum support, one Cisco Unified Computing System 210 M2 server using a local Solid State Disk (SSD) storage, one Samsung 19” PC over IP (PCoIP) Zero Client, one Dell FX100 remote access device as well as Force 3 VMWare View Jumpstart services.

“As the government moves towards teleworking, implementing virtual desktops is more important than ever,” added Verma. “The Velocity VDI Bundle is an attractive platform for teleworking because the end user’s device does not contain any user data, greatly reducing security issues, and users have, anytime, anywhere access to the desktop, which increases employee productivity and helps ‘green’ the data center.”

On Thursday, October 28th, Force 3 will be holding a webinar to debunk the most popular myths about implementing VDI. Force 3's Sam Lee, Senior Solutions Architect and VMware's Bryan Salek, Desktop Specialist, will discuss the value a VDI solution can bring to your organization, including use cases such as BRAC activity, teleworker initiatives, Windows 7 upgrades as well as best practices for design and implementation especially around storage.
