The American Hospital Association Awards Its Endorsement to Quest vWorkspace for Desktop Virtualization

The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has awarded an exclusive endorsement to Quest vWorkspace for its desktop virtualization management, connection brokering, and user experience capabilities. Desktop virtualization is the use of virtual machines to let multiple network subscribers maintain desktops on a single, centrally located computer or server. Desktop virtualization offers advantages over the traditional model of every computer operating as a completely self-contained unit with its own operating system, peripherals and application programs. As the demands on health care IT departments increase, it is essential to provide tools that ease the management of the desktop infrastructure. Quest vWorkspace delivers a solution for desktop virtualization that consolidates multiple desktop virtualization techniques and technologies enabling the centralized management of all virtual desktops from a single console, saving significant time and resources for any IT department. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA endorsement to organizations that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve organizational excellence.

Desktop virtualization offers hospitals many benefits but requires a comprehensive, easy to use, adaptable and cost-effective management solution. vWorkspace from Quest Software offers a single management console spanning Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Remote Desktop Services (Terminal Services), and blade PCs. vWorkspace supports multiple VDI platforms (Microsoft, VMware, and Parallels) giving hospitals the flexibility to mix and match desktop and application delivery to provide dynamic and location-independent access for varying user types. The vWorkspace Experience Optimized Protocol (EOP) drives employee adoption by accelerating images and multimedia content, delivering high-quality audio and universal support for USB devices so that the virtual desktop behaves and feels like a physical one.

“At a time when hospitals are struggling with shrinking budgets and increased regulation, many are seeking ways to simplify desktop and application management to increase clinician productivity and patient care while reducing expenses and improving security and compliance,.,” said Anthony Burke, president and CEO, AHA Solutions, Inc. “Quest vWorkspace offers a cost-effective solution and provides a high level of scalability and flexibility for hospital needs.”

“We’re honored to receive this endorsement, which was earned based on the flexibility and breadth of vWorkspace features;” said Simon Pearce, vice-president and general manager of Quest Software’s Desktop Virtualization Group “Hospitals have unique requirements for desktops and are great candidates for the benefits of desktop virtualization. vWorkspace is well positioned to meet their needs today and well into the future by delivering flexible building blocks, scalability, and automation of operations needed to simplify the management and use of virtual desktops.”
