Virtual Bridges Wins MSPAlliance MSPWorld Cup Award 2011

Virtual Bridges today announced it has been awarded the highly coveted MSPAlliance MSPWorld Cup Award™ at the MSPWorld Conference and Expo in Austin, TX. MSPAlliance and MSPWorld events are recognized worldwide as the premier gathering place for managed service providers (MSPs). This award recognizes technology enabling companies that have demonstrated consistent efforts to advance the cause of managed service providers across the globe by providing cutting edge technologies and solutions.

“VDI Gen2 is a perfect fit for MSPs who want to provide desktop management and provisioning capabilities as an on-demand VDI service,” said Jim Curtin, CEO of Virtual Bridges. “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.”

Comprised of more than 15,000 member companies, MSPAlliance is committed to increasing the reliability and dependability of managed mission-critical IT services. Through the industry’s only accreditation program and code of ethics, the MSPAlliance empowers companies to improve their respective return on investment in technology procurement and implementation.

“We are honored that Virtual Bridges has been recognized for their achievements and hard work in the managed services profession,” said Charles Weaver, CEO of MSPAlliance. “Without these technologies and tools the managed service provider community throughout the world would not be able to deliver their solutions and services effectively. The MSPWorld Cup Awards were created so that the MSP community the world over could easily identify those companies that have been recognized for having the best enabling technology in their respective fields.”

The MSPAlliance is the latest to recognize Virtual Bridges for its innovation. The company was recently named a CRN Emerging Technology Vendor, on the heels of its recognition as one of CRN’s 15 desktop virtualization vendors to watch. Other 2011 accolades include being 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.

Virtual Bridges VERDE, the industry’s first VDI Gen2 solution, leverages the lightweight framework and portability of the open source KVM hypervisor and uses the SPICE protocol to provide a high-quality user experience for remote access, similar to being in a LAN environment. Whether public, private or hybrid cloud environments, VDI Gen2 allows users to access their applications, files and documents from any location, any device.
