Latest award for all-in-one and easy to deploy Desktop as a Service software which allows MSPs, resellers and customers to deliver all the components necessary to implement Cloud hosted desktops

VDIworks, a leading provider of software for virtualization and cloud computing, announced today that it was named a winner in the Cloud Solutions category at CRN’s 9th annual Tech Innovator awards ceremony. The Tech Innovator Awards recognizes technology companies that have used original methods or technologies to deliver new, innovative products and partner support. CRN Test Center Editors reviewed hundreds of technology products deployed over the past year to determine which vendors broke away traditional thinking to create completely new and unique channel opportunities. Companies on this year’s list recently implemented innovative methods to bridge the gap between current problems and solutions facing channel executives today.

VDIworks’ DaaSManager, an all-in-one, easy to deploy Desktops as a Service software offering allows MSPs, resellers and customers to deliver all the components necessary to implement Cloud hosted desktops using a pre-integrated stack. All the key functionality, including connection brokering, remote access, a connection gateway and other elements are enabled via a single, easy-to-use, web-based console. Since DaaSManager supports Linux and Windows® virtual desktops, it opens possibilities for channel partners to explore opportunities and expand into price sensitive markets, such as K-12, emerging economies and low-margin industries such as large scale manufacturing.

“On behalf of the entire VDIworks team, I’m deeply honored to receive this prestigious award”, said Amir Husain, President and CEO of VDIworks. “It has been wonderful participating in the Xchange conference and witnessing tremendous recognition for our ground-breaking DaasManager platform. We are very thankful to the CRN Test Center team for their diligence and commitment in testing and validating the leading enterprise technology solutions.”

“For the past nine years, the CRN Test Center has honored companies and products that take an original and inventive approach to solving today’s IT problems,” said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director for UBM Channel. “With product offerings ranging from cloud deployment to digital signage, this year’s Tech Innovators are helping their Solution Provider partners solve particular problems for clients, ultimately differentiating themselves as a trusted adviser.”
