Wow. Did you see the title? Read it again. Has Pano Logic really closed its doors? After doing a quick search online, there is only one media company reporting this news -- Credit Union Times. Now, not to take anything away from the fine work that I'm sure this publication does day in and day out. But really? In the world of virtualization news, Credit Union Times gets a scoop about Pano Logic shutting down and closing shop before anyone else?
Does anyone else find this puzzling?
So I have to ask myself, is this real? Tomorrow is Halloween after all, so could this be a trick instead of a treat? If it were April 1st, I'd most certainly question this even more... in fact, I wouldn't have even mentioned it. Why mention someone else's April fools joke as if it were real?
But now I sit here, reading a very small article from Credit Union Times, which states:
Pano Logic, the provider of the end-to-end, virtual hardware and software desktop solution Pano System, has gone out of business, according to the company’s former public relations firm.
The shutdown comes shortly after the company announced a PC replacement project with the $3.4 billion Redstone Federal Credit Union in Huntsville, Ala. Redstone FCU had been in the process of replacing 75% of its PCs with Pano Logic’s virtual desktop computing solutions and planned to continue the project into 2013.
Redstone FCU said that its legal and IT teams were reviewing the situation but had no other comment so far.
Ok, maybe I've just been punked, and I just let on how gullible I am by re-posting this information to all of you. But then again, maybe the Credit Union Times got it right? Does anyone know? Have you seen anything posted elsewhere confirming or denying this news? I'm sure more will come out soon enough. Perhaps Pano Logic will email me telling me I'm a fool for listening to this nonsense. Or, maybe, just maybe, the big powerhouse publishers will come out tomorrow with the news as if they broke the story. Stay tuned!
