Pano Logic Launches Innovative Desktop Virtualization Solution in Canada With the Opening of a Toronto Office
Pano Logic, developer of a server-based virtualized desktop, today announced the expansion of its North American operations with the opening of a Canadian headquarters in Toronto, Ontario. Industry veteran Rob Lalonde, Pano Logics vice president of East coast sales, will oversee the new office, which will focus on accelerating sales of Pano Logic and supporting the growing Canadian market.

Founded in February 2006, Pano Logic launched its first desktop virtualization solution in August 2007. The company is led by CEO Nick Gault, an experienced leader of enterprise technology companies who is originally from Montreal, Canada. Gault brings strong virtualization experience to Pano Logic, having served as the founding CEO of XenSource, recently acquired by Citrix Systems.

As in other regions, virtualization is a very pressing IT need in Canada, and we expect to see rapid adoption of the solution, said Lalonde. We recognized the need to have an office dedicated to the Canadian market, and selected Toronto for its central location, the sophistication of its IT community and the availability of talented, highly-trained personnel.

Lalonde will be responsible for sales, partner and business development for Canada, as well as the Northeast and Central regions of the U.S. Previously, Lalonde has held executive sales positions at Hummingbird Communications, Delano Technology and Fusepoint Managed Services. In addition to sales and support, the new office will include quality assurance and research and development operations headed by Anthony Di Loreto, manager of quality assurance, and George Halpert, director of software development.

Pano Logic leverages standard virtualization technologies to create a new approach to client/desktop computing that dramatically lowers total cost of ownership while increasing security, management and mobility. The Pano desktop computer has no CPU, no memory, no operating system and no drivers. By moving all software off the desktop and consolidating everything onto easier to manage, shared servers, Pano reduces desktop TCO by 70 percent or more saving $3150 per desktop over three years and eliminates the desktop as a security risk.

We have carried VMware products for several years, and Pano Logic is a natural extension of our offerings. Their approach to desktop virtualization leverages our customers existing server virtualization technology and seamlessly integrates with their datacenters, said Alex McGillivray, president at Calgary-based Sure Systems Ltd. We look forward to working closely with Pano Logic to bring this innovative technology to our customers.

Pano Logic has already signed a number of Canadian partners including IdeaLogical (, OTG (, Scalar (, Sure Systems (, and Third Octet ( For more information on Pano Logic, visit
