Customers are realizing that Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View are incomplete and too complex for anything beyond basic desktops and applications. Unidesk desktop layering software is the simpler, more powerful management alternative.
Marlborough, Mass (PRWEB) November 29, 2012
Unidesk Corporation today announced it has been named a “Major Player” in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Client Virtualization 2012 Vendor Analysis (Doc #237753, November 2012). Designed specifically for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Unidesk® desktop layering software greatly simplifies the management of Microsoft Windows® images, applications, and users, and provides the user flexibility and administrative simplicity needed for Citrix XenDesktop® and VMware View™ production success.
With Unidesk, VDI administrators have only one gold image of Microsoft Windows to patch and update for all desktops, no matter how differently they are configured. Applications can be packaged separately and layered on top in minutes, without the limitations of application virtualization. End users enjoy fully persistent desktops that keep all customizations, including user-installed applications. By sharing layers across many desktops, Unidesk® reduces VDI storage capacity requirements up to 70% for both non-persistent and persistent desktops.
“We’re pleased to again be included in IDC’s MarketScape, and to be named a Major Player in Client Virtualization,” said Don Bulens, Unidesk CEO. “Customers are realizing that Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View are incomplete and too complex for anything beyond basic desktops and applications. Unidesk desktop layering software is the simpler, more powerful management alternative.”
