We are extremely interested in desktop virtualization and the new ClearCube VDI bundle takes away a lot of the headaches we would otherwise have to tackle. For us, that's key.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 17, 2009
ClearCube, the market leader in centralized desktop computing solutions, today announced that it is launching the industry's most complete, lowest cost, and most effectively managed virtual desktop bundle. The unique solution will include all the necessary components required for organizations to quickly and simply implement VDI in their environment. Most significantly, ClearCube's new offering provides end users with the ability to overcome significant acquisition cost hurdles. Starting at a per-seat price of $599, inclusive of all hardware and software other than the Windows client OS, the solution delivers the security and manageability of a high-end centralized system at low-end PC prices.
"ClearCube has been a pioneer in the centralized computing and desktop virtualization areas. We've been listening to our customers closely and what we hear over and over when it comes to desktop virtualization is the dual challenge of acquisition cost and implementation complexity.", said Randy Printz, President and CEO of ClearCube Technology. "With our new managed VDI bundle we've attacked both these issues head-on and come up with a pre-integrated, instant-on desktop virtualization solution for our customers".
While desktop virtualization has been gaining traction, adoption is still limited to organizations with high-level IT skillsets and available human resources to implement these, often complex, projects. The fact that ClearCube's new VDI bundle provides pre-integrated components, all the way from the back-end server to the client device, makes it simple for an organization's IT managers to get a comprehensively managed, well-tuned VDI system up and running.
"Epoch Concepts has been a ClearCube Partner for many years now, and are very impressed with what we see in the new generation of products they're developing." said Marcus Smiley, CEO of Epoch Concepts. "We are extremely interested in desktop virtualization and the new ClearCube VDI bundle takes away a lot of the headaches we would otherwise have to tackle. For us, that's key."
