We were extremely proud to have these high-level executives from our partners IBM, Citrix, CentriServ, and VMware help us launch our solution center, said Joe Makoid, President, Devon IT. The Server Desktop Solution Center will help companies become familiar with the post-PC era and server-centric computing, and help organizations of all sizes understand how server-based desktop computing works and how the implementation of thin clients, servers, blades, and virtualization can benefit different computing environments. We thank everyone who attended for a successful launch, and hope to have similar events in the future.

Businesses and organizations of any size can send their IT personnel and company servers either physically or virtually to simulate their computing environments. Customers can test Devon IT thin clients, IBM Blade Centers and servers, software from Citrix, and virtualization solutions from VMware, along with products from other server-based computing companies. Industry experts from Devon IT and CentriServ will also offer seminars, classes, and comprehensive solution and integration services to help companies understand and implement server-centric computing environments. The Server Desktop Solution Center is fully-equipped with client workstations, training rooms, conference rooms, and a complete customer-ready datacenter.
