CONSOL Energy Inc. Selects RingCube vDesk for Desktop Virtualization

RingCube Technologies, the leading provider of managed virtual workspaces, today announced that CONSOL Energy Inc. (NYSE:CNX), the leading coal and gas producer in the Appalachian Basin, has selected RingCube vDesk to help centralize management of PCs and increase overall performance of desktop computing in their underground mining systems. RingCube vDesk is a high-performance enterprise desktop virtualization solution that simplifies the creation, access and management of Windows desktops through Workspace Virtualization.

“Our main goal was to leverage existing equipment to deliver improved application performance to our underground and remote sites and RingCube was instrumental in delivering the complete desktop virtualization solution we needed,” said George Rosato, vice president, Information Systems and Technology, CONSOL Energy Inc. “vDesk has enabled us to dramatically reduce the time to transition new employees to the CONSOL desktop.

RingCube’s unique Virtual Workspace technology separates the user’s desktop environment including applications, data and settings from the operating system and encapsulates it into a secure container while automatically backing up every virtual desktop to a centralized server. Users can run their vDesk workspace at the office or on unmanaged PCs – at home, or at a disaster recovery site. When users start their vDesk workspace, it transforms any Windows PC into their own familiar corporate workspace where users can access their files, applications, settings and entire desktop, just as if they were on their own business PC whether online or offline from the network.

vDesk Advantages:

  • No second operating system to license or manage
  • High-performance virtualization technology
  • Runs at 99% of the native host PC performance
  • Four Flexible deployment options: PC, Drive, Network, VDI
  • MobileSync provides offline synchronization

“Businesses of all sizes are looking to desktop virtualization to help their businesses run more efficiently and gain a competitive edge,” said Pete Foley, president and CEO, RingCube. “vDesk delivers a full performance experience superior to other desktop virtualization solutions, which increases employee productivity while driving down PC management costs. We are pleased to help customers such as CONSOL Energy with a virtual desktop solution that will help them to fully maximize their existing PCs and make efficient use of precious IT resources.”
