desktopsites, Inc. (‘desktopsites’), a leading developer of desktop virtualization solutions for Small and Mid-Size Businesses (‘SMBs’), today announced it has been recognized in CRN’s 2012 Virtualization 100 list. Featuring the top 100 vendors in the virtualization space, the Virtualization 100 is an annual list published by UBM Channel’s CRN that helps Solution Providers identify and evaluate virtualization products and programs. CRN lists are considered the de facto resource Solution Providers use to make strategic technology decisions and support their business.

Companies on the 2012 Virtualization 100 list were selected by CRN editors based on their innovative and forward-thinking approach to selling products and services through the IT Channel. Vendors on the list were selected based on their ability to help VARs transform themselves into true service providers that help organizations take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that virtualization has to offer.

"With all the noise in the marketplace, it can sometimes be challenging for Solution Providers to determine which virtualization company would be the best to partner with," said Kelley Damore, Vice President, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “That’s why we developed our annual Virtualization 100 list, to highlight and outline the top 100 technology vendors in the space that power, support and evangelize the benefits of virtualization across all parts of the IT infrastructure. We congratulate each member or the Virtualization 100 for making this year’s list."

“Small and Mid-Size businesses are key to the success of the North American economy”, says Alex Bethlehem, CEO for desktopsites. “As SMBs want to capitalize on the benefits of desktop virtualization, they need a desktop virtualization solution that can be purchased and installed easily, and at a price point that makes sense for their budgets.”

“desktopsites’ Konect Elite desktop virtualization-in-a-box solution was designed specifically for the SMB market”, states Bethlehem. “As a Microsoft centric, all-in-one desktop delivery solution, at an annual subscription price of $49.00 per user, Konect Elite delivers on the core features small businesses require in order to manager and deliver their desktop virtualization delivery needs, whether it be TS/RDS desktops, RemoteApps, App-V and VDI or any combination thereof to any user, anywhere, anytime.

“We’re finding tremendous success in the small business user base where the Konect Elite all-in-one desktop delivery solution radically simplifies the cost, complexity, headaches and confusion associated with a desktop virtualization management and delivery solution.”

The 2012 Virtualization list will be featured on and in the May 2012 issue of CRN.
