Green Data Centre Inc Taps Virtual Bridges to Deliver Environmentally-Responsible Virtual Desktop Management

Virtual Bridges, Inc. and Green Data Centre Inc (GDC) today announced a partnership to bring Virtual Bridges VERDE virtual desktop management and provisioning capabilities to GDC customers across Canada. Featuring online, offline and branch VDI, VERDE is proven to reduce the costs and complexity of managing desktops, while minimizing security concerns and business risk.   

As the industry’s only purpose-built VDI solution, VERDE allows users to access both Windows and Linux desktops from any location or device — including tablets, netbooks, laptops and thin clients. Additionally, the solution can be deployed on a customer’s own infrastructure, hosted by GDC or delivered as a service by GDC. Organizations can manage desktops centrally, reducing the costs and challenges associated with provisioning, updating and securing PC environments.

“Enterprises of all sizes are increasingly looking for ways to leverage desktop virtualization to reduce costs, but there’s also a tremendous opportunity to use this technology to minimize carbon footprints and reduce power consumption,” said Emerich R Winkler, Jr, CEO at Green Data Centre Inc. “VERDE is a perfect fit for our roster of innovative, environmentally-friendly solutions.”

VERDE is the industry’s first VDI Gen2 solution designed for organizations that want to escape the constraints of physical computing, simplify desktop management, improve security and increase business agility.

Among its many advantages, VDI Gen2 is helping organizations streamline their Windows 7 migrations. Instead of having to re-image all desktops and laptops, VERDE allows GDC customers to create, test and deploy a virtual desktop with Windows 7 in minutes. Additionally, VERDE reduces power consumption while offering customers unified monitoring and management of desktops across onsite and offsite environments; high-definition multimedia support; automatic bi-directional sync for true mobility; and advanced cloud branch capabilities including disaster recovery and business continuity.

“VERDE delivers real value to customers, both in terms of cost and energy savings -- a strength that truly sets us apart from the competition,” said Jim Curtin, president and CEO at Virtual Bridges. “We’re thrilled to partner with Green Data Centre Inc to bring this technology to a new market of environmentally-conscious organizations. The response we’ve seen for VERDE has been incredible, validating the value proposition around VDI Gen2.”

Green Data Centre Inc specializes in innovative green solutions for businesses looking to reduce their power costs and maintain IT equipment and data in an environmentally responsible way. The company offers Canadian cloud computing, dynamic data center services, high performance computing, high density blade computing, hosted desktops and hosted telecom solutions for organizations throughout the world.
