desktopsites Partners with D&H Distributing to Tackle SMB Desktop Virtualization Challenges

Share Article

desktopsites, Inc. (‘desktopsites’) announced that they have signed a distribution agreement with D&H Distributing, a leading North American technology distributor, to expand the company’s reach in the small and midsize business (SMB) market. With this partnership in place, D&H can now distribute desktopsites’ desktop virtualization solutions throughout North America.

Desktop virtualization is an exciting new way to connect users to their applications and data beyond the PC. Instead of maintaining individual desktops and core applications on PCs, IT can now deliver these desktops and applications to these users more efficiently and securely from a centrally stored location, on-site or off-site. Management of these resources becomes streamlined and efficient, improving productivity and boosting ROI.

SMBs are primed to adopt desktop virtualization as part of their end user computing strategy in 2012 – 2013. However, many SMBs continue to face tight budgets and shortages of available expertise and resources, and this is all coupled with the desire to manage deployments in-house. Therefore, SMBs need simple and affordable desktop virtualization solutions that will take them from proof of concept to production, quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.

While there has been substantial progress with Microsoft’s free desktop virtualization tools in Windows Server 2012, SMBs still struggle considerably with management approaches from Microsoft for mixed client, server and mobile device requirements – capabilities that just aren’t possible with Microsoft free tools. And without a team to install and maintain Microsoft’s enterprise-level solution, System Center and all of its management tools, neither solution becomes a viable option for SMBs. They need something in the middle, with powerful enterprise-level features, but simple and at a reasonable cost.

desktopsites’ virtualization solution, Konect Elite, has been specifically designed for SMBs, supporting mixed servers, client desktops, and mobile devices. With Konect Elite, users have access to the information they need, when they need it, regardless of what device or client version they’re running. Konect Elite provides users with the seamless experience they need as they roam between their devices, all at an affordable price. It just makes sense for SMBs.

“As our momentum in the SMB market continues to grow, D&H will allow us to gain access to a broader network of resellers in North America”, said Alex Bethlehem, President at desktopsites. “D&H are experts in the SMB market, and their experience and knowledge selling IT solutions and supporting resellers make it a perfect fit for desktopsites. This partnership opens up many new opportunities for both desktopsites and D&H, and we look forward to working together to meet the growing demand for virtualization delivery solutions.”

Though this partnership, desktopsites gains access to D&H’s extensive channels and impressive partner network, which includes over 25,000 resellers who service the SMB market. In turn, D&H channel partners can now have access to desktopsites’ virtualization solutions, which will take their users from proof of concept to production quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.

”The ability for SMB end-users to access their applications and desktops anywhere, anytime, on any device is in great demand due to the efficiencies and the redundancy that is built into this paradigm. We’re therefore very happy to join forces with desktopsites, in order to help our resellers address this productivity trend with a quality technology.” – Rob Eby, VP of Purchasing, D&H Distributing.
