We are thrilled to provide a solution that is Vblock certified as the growth in desktop virtualization drives greater demand for converged infrastructure.
Marlborough, Mass (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Unidesk Corporation, the leader in virtual desktop provisioning, application delivery, and image management software for VMware View™ and Citrix XenDesktop®, today announced that its flagship VDI management solution has been certified on VCE™ Vblock™ Systems as “VCE Vblock Ready”. Vblock systems integrate leading Cisco networking and server, EMC storage and VMware cloud infrastructure technologies into a single intelligent converged infrastructure system with seamless support. This certification provides customers with the assurance that Unidesk will interoperate with Vblock systems.
“We are thrilled to provide a solution that is Vblock certified as the growth in desktop virtualization drives greater demand for converged infrastructure,” said Don Bulens, Unidesk CEO. “The VDI market will grow even more rapidly if IT organizations can reduce complexity, expand use cases, and show clearer operational cost savings. Unidesk greatly simplifies the management of Microsoft Windows® images, applications, and users for Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View customers, while providing the user flexibility and administrative simplicity needed for VDI success.”
With Unidesk® desktop layering software, 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 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.
Certification was conducted by Superna™, which has been authorized by VCE to provide Vblock system certifications to VCE Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program members. This certification enables mutual channel partners and customers to accelerate adoption of Vblock systems by leveraging Unidesk for VDI use cases where desktops need to be configured with a variety of applications, Windows patches must be frequently applied, and user customizations need to be saved.
