Delivering the value of a next generation cloud-based desktop infrastructure
DALLAS, Texas—September 26, 2012 — CompuCom Systems, Inc., the leading IT outsourcing specialist, and Virtual Bridges, a trailblazing desktop virtualization company, have joined forces to answer the demand for a virtualized desktop solution that is elastic, secure, highly automated, and can be delivered and managed as a service, either on-premise or as a hosted offering.
Today’s modern end user is many users at once – mobile, thin client, laptop, traditional workstation and desktop user – who need a common experience regardless of their device or location. The power of desktop virtualization lies in its ability to separate the end user computing experience from the physical device, allowing it to be centrally managed, automated and secured, and yet reach all types of users with a consistent, device-appropriate experience. Desktop Cloud as a Managed Service delivers this capability with maximum efficiency and time-to-value.
“Organizations of all sizes are looking to leverage the benefits of virtualization to transform the cost of managing desktops, protect end-user data, and provide access from anywhere,” said Ed Anderson, chief strategy officer for CompuCom. “CompuCom’s relationship with Virtual Bridges is an extension of our continued commitment to bring innovative business and technology solutions to our clients,” added Anderson.
A next generation cloud-based desktop infrastructure that tackles the issues of cost and complexity while also adequately addressing off-line, regional and branch users, delivered in a highly-efficient managed environment, is a powerful approach that provides the missing elements to eliminate existing obstacles to value and adoption of a virtualized desktop infrastructure.
"Desktop Cloud as a Managed Service is the killer combination for realizing value from VDI," said Jim Curtin, president and CEO of Virtual Bridges. "We are thrilled to partner with CompuCom and leverage their vast experience in managing over 4.25 million devices. Combined with Virtual Bridges' Desktop Cloud private cloud offering, VERDE, this offering will change the game for VDI," added Curtin.
