“Workspot enables users to securely and easily access any application from any device with our Workspace as a Service solution,” Amitabh Sinha, Workspot CEO, said. “Today we forged ahead with VDI 2.0, extending our solution to deliver desktops purpose built for hyperconverged infrastructure taking a bite out of the high cost and complexity suffered by VDI deployments worldwide.”
“The value of the virtual desktop is clear, but existing VDI implementations often suffer from limited appeal due to high overhead and difficult end-user implementations,” said Fred McClimans, EVP of Strategy and Managing Director of Digital Trust and Security at HfS Research. “The idea of rethinking VDI to leverage hyper-converged infrastructure is a much needed step in the right direction to better enable the mobile workforce and leverage cloud-based scalability.”
