Virtual Bridges Named a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor

Virtual Bridges today announced it has been selected by Everything Channel as a 2011 CRN Emerging Technology Vendor.  The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. Virtual Bridges was named to the list for its innovative approach to desktop virtualization - a complete solution that offers fully personalized desktops delivered online, offline or in the branch.

Featuring the industry’s only “VDI Gen2” solution, Virtual Bridges has set a new standard for desktop virtualization. With Virtual Bridges VERDE, VDI moves beyond the data center and LAN-bound scenarios to deliver value to off-line users, branch users and server-hosted users, all from the same management interface.

VERDE continues to gain incredible traction within the service provider and reseller communities for its scalability, security and value. Enterprises are turning to VERDE for its recently released StorageSaver feature which significantly reduces the IOPS requirement and therefore decreases storage costs associated with VDI.

“Enabling customers with the tools and strategies to solve real business problems has always been a priority to solution providers. The market has grown increasingly competitive over the years; so too has the demand for innovative, channel-friendly technologies.” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, Everything Channel. “From the cloud to semantic technology, this year’s list of Emerging Technology Vendors highlights the emphasis on innovation and ease of use that has been the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”

The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2005 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.  Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information.

“Virtualization is a disruptive force in the IT industry, creating significant revenue opportunities for the channel,” said Jim Curtin, CEO of Virtual Bridges. “We’re honored to be recognized for our innovation in this space.”

This is Virtual Bridges’ second recognition by CRN Magazine this year. In June the company was named one of 15 desktop virtualization vendors to watch. It was also recently named a “Major Player” in desktop virtualization by IDC, a MIT Sloan CIO Symposium Innovation Showcase finalist and a "Cool Vendor" in Personal Computing by Gartner.
