We think we can offer OEMs and VARs a solution set no other VDI vendor can match and remain committed to growing our partnerships in this area
Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 06, 2011
Today, VDIworks, the leading virtual desktop management and enablement company, announced it has been recognized by Everything Channel in CRN’s new Virtualization 100 list. Featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space as identified by the editorial staff of CRN, the list serves as the de facto resource by which VARs can begin to evaluate the best virtualization products for their business. VDIworks was named to the Virtualization 100 for its suite of powerful and innovative Virtual Desktop management and enablement products.
According to the CRN Fast Growth Study, virtualization is the number one technology that VARs are investing in over the next year. The CRN Virtualization 100 list highlights the most compelling virtualization vendors and solutions to best meet the growing needs of the channel. These featured vendors were selected based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging virtualization has to offer.
VDIworks has been one of the pioneers in the Desktop Virtualization space, and with its broad set of management and enablement offerings, it stands apart from other vendors in terms of being able to empower VARs to manage and deliver virtual desktops based on any combination of Xen, VMware ESX™ and Microsoft Hyper-V™ based virtual machines. The VDIworks Virtual Desktop Platform (VDP™) supports over half a dozen protocols, including Microsoft RDP, VDIworks VideoOverIP, HP RGS™, Teradici PCoIP™, Wyse TCX™ and numerous others, giving VARs the flexibility to work with any combination of vendors, and delivering a consistent, proven and highly differentiated solution to the end customer.
VDIworks’ software provides support for hosted virtual desktops brokered over a network, as well as virtual machine checkout (Endpoint Virtualization) for disconnected scenarios. And unlike almost any other Virtual Desktop management product, VDP™ provides end-to-end management, all the way from the physical server hosting the Hypervisor, covering the Hypervisor instance itself, the virtual machines running on top, the connection and protocol layers in the middle, finally to the Thin client or Zero client at the user’s location. The vendor agnostic nature of the solution, combined with unparalleled end-to-end management features uniquely position VDIworks as a leading Desktop Virtualization contender in CRN’s Virtualization 100 list.
“From server to storage to desktop virtualization, this technology will become a mainstay for businesses large and small and one of the more profitable technologies for VARs to integrate and sell,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “The Virtualization 100 list provides showcases the best virtualization technology solutions to help VARs navigate the virtualization landscape and determine which vendor is best suited to meet their unique needs.”
“We are extremely pleased that CRN has recognized our solution as one of the most innovative and powerful virtual desktop systems available in the industry today,” said Amir Husain, President and CEO of VDIworks. “Our products have evolved over time to address almost every conceivable VDI use-case that customers would want to implement and we remain particularly excited about the innovations planned on our roadmap. We think we can offer OEMs and VARs a solution set no other VDI vendor can match and remain committed to growing our partnerships in this area”.
