Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
VDIworks, a leading provider of software for virtualization and cloud computing, announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.
Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and a go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.
“We are very pleased to be part of the Emerging Vendor list for the second consecutive year. This year VDIworks has launched a number of upgrades to our core product set as well as new products such as DaaSManager, which create massive opportunity for resellers and MSPs”, said Amir Husain, President and CEO of VDIworks.
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.
“Emerging doesn't mean what it used to,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”
Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit http://www.CRN.com.
