We are delighted to have John on our team
Westford, MA (Vocus) December 7, 2010
Virtual Computer, the leader in distributed VDI, today announced John Glendenning as senior vice president of worldwide sales and business development. Glendenning, recently of Citrix, has been a recognized leader in the virtualization market since its establishment, most notably as vice president of sales at XenSource where he built worldwide sales from the ground up. Their success led to the company’s acquisition by Citrix in 2007 where Glendenning was most recently head of worldwide OEM sales.
“We are delighted to have John on our team,” said Dan McCall, CEO and president at Virtual Computer. “His track record speaks for itself as an early field leader at Citrix and a member of the XenSource management team that established Xen as an important technology in the virtualization market. John will be instrumental in accelerating the adoption of our award-winning NxTop product with customers, partners, and strategic alliances worldwide.”
NxTop combines centralized client management with bare-metal, client hypervisor technology to provide a cost-effective solution for managing any combination of local desktops, remote VDI sessions, and server- and cloud-based applications, cutting IT desktop operating costs in half without compromising mobility, user experience, or current PC investments.
“There is a perfect storm happening right now with pent up demand for Windows 7 migrations, under-resourced IT departments, and tight budgets,” noted Glendenning. “IT management has had enough of throwing good money after bad. Client virtualization leveraging a Type-1 hypervisor is the answer and I am very much looking forward to building on the success Virtual Computer has already enjoyed with NxTop, the market leading product in this category.”
