Workspot (workspot.com), the leading provider of VDI 2.0, announced today it is working with VMware, Inc., a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, to deliver a VDI solution optimized for mid-market customers. The new cost-effective offering brings Workspot’s powerful, cloud native VDI architecture with the application and user management technologies in VMware App Volumes™.
The companies are collaborating to accelerate the adoption of VDI for mid-market customers. Currently, Workspot’s cloud native architecture enables IT to deploy VDI 2.0 in 60 minutes. VMware App Volumes is a portfolio of application and user management solutions for VMware Horizon and RDSH virtual environments. The solutions offer enhancements to desktop and application environments by providing faster application delivery and unified application and user management, while reducing storage and operational costs.
“VMware App Volumes and Workspot can enable mid-market companies to enjoy the benefits of advanced application and user management alongside virtual desktops and applications,” said Shankar Iyer, vice president and general manager, Desktop Products, End-User Computing, VMware. “As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, delivering virtual desktops and applications to end-users anytime, anywhere on any device can be a very useful solution.”
By reducing cost as one of the barriers to adoption of VDI, the solution will empower businesses to become more efficient and agile. In addition, the solution can simplify IT operations and unlocks IT’s ability to quickly respond to changes in business requirements.
“The Workspot and VMware technical collaboration extends the Workspot VDI 2.0 cloud native platform to deliver the simplicity required by our mid-market customers,” said Amitabh Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Workspot. “180,000 mid-market customers are currently stalled on legacy app virtualization solutions, unable to migrate to VDI because of cost and complexity. Now these customers can have access to a cost effective VDI solution.”
The combined Workspot and App Volumes solution is available now. For more information, visit www.workspot.com/vmware.
