Virtual Bridges and Savvis Partner to Deliver On-Demand Virtual Desktop Services on the Savvis Managed Hosted Platform
Virtual Bridges, Inc. and Savvis, a global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, today announced a partnership to deliver Virtual Bridges VERDE virtual desktop management and provisioning capabilities as an on-demand solution to organizations worldwide. Featuring online, offline and branch VDI, VERDE is proven to help organizations reduce the cost and complexity of managing desktops, while minimizing security concerns and business risk.

With Savvis’ Managed Hosting platform and VERDE, organizations looking for on-demand managed VDI services now have access to an enterprise-class hosting and cloud infrastructure. Using the joint solution, customers can easily scale their environment to meet fluctuating business demands, without sacrificing security or performance, regardless of whether the solution is deployed on a customer’s own infrastructure, hosted or delivered as a service by Savvis.

Virtual Bridges was recently named a “Major Player” in desktop virtualization by IDC, which cited the company’s current strengths and long-term strategy in delivering VDI solutions to market.

VERDE is designed for organizations that want to escape the constraints of physical computing, simplify desktop management, improve security and increase business agility. As the industry’s only VDI Gen2 solution, VERDE provides end users access to both Windows and Linux desktops from any location or device — including tablets, netbooks, laptops and thin clients. In addition, IT professionals can manage desktops centrally, reducing the costs and challenges associated with provisioning, updating and securing highly distributed PC environments.

“Cloud computing and VDI are both well-known for driving efficiency, reducing costs, increasing scalability and improving performance,” said Jim Curtin, president and CEO at Virtual Bridges. “Savvis is one of the leaders in providing reliable, powerful cloud solutions. Together we’re bringing to market a compelling solution that will drive measurable ROI for customers.”

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 Savvis customers to create, test and deploy a virtual desktop with Windows 7 in minutes. Additionally, VERDE offers 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.

“Savvis provides enterprise-grade infrastructure services for Virtual Bridges to deliver a Device-as-a-Service offering to the market. Our partners are providing high business value applications that leverage our cloud infrastructure for government and enterprise clients,” said Jaywant Rao, vice president, global alliances at Savvis. “We are excited to team with Virtual Bridges as a partner of the Savvis global alliances program.”
