MokaFive’s BareMetal Offers Breakthrough Client-side Virtual Desktop Management Solution; Broadest Hardware Compatibility in the Industry

Today, MokaFive, known for its innovative virtual-desktop solutions, announced the release of MokaFive BareMetal, a client hypervisor that installs directly onto the bare metal of users’ machines – providing unparalleled performance, iron-clad security, and control over every aspect of the desktop software stack.   

It is the first product on the market to provide this functionality as part of a complete end-to-end desktop-management solution.

Broadest Hardware Support in the Industry

BareMetal was designed for maximum control, performance, and security. It accommodates the broadest range of hardware of any other bare-metal hypervisor solution on the market, while requiring a mere 2GB of RAM and a 64-bit compatible CPU.

“dinCloud was looking for a solution that could scale and handle thousands of end user desktops for enterprise grade reliability, so we needed a client hypervisor offering that could run on various devices,” says MokaFive customer,  Mike Chase, CTO of dinCloud, a cloud-services provider. “After looking at the options, MokaFive’s BareMetal solution for desktop management came out heads and shoulders above the competition – not just for hardware compatibility, but also for management capabilities, performance and security. We are very impressed with MokaFive.”

Elegant  Single Solution for the Entire Enterprise

“With the addition of BareMetal, MokaFive can now truly claim that it provides the first complete enterprise desktop-management solution in the industry,” said Dale Fuller, MokaFive CEO. “We now support corporate-owned PCs, desktops, laptops, Macs, PCs... the entire gamut of workplace hardware and operating systems. When implemented as a complete solution, the MokaFive Suite can reduce the total cost of desktop management by up to 60 percent.”

MokaFive Suite already included the ability to run a secure, managed virtual desktop on top of Macs, PCs, desktops and laptops – whether online or offline. With BareMetal, that capability is extended to allow the virtual desktop to be installed directly on the hardware’s bare metal, circumventing the need for a host OS and enabling management of any PC in the enterprise through a single console.
