SFDATA Partners with Virtual Bridges to Deliver Flexible, Scalable VDI

Virtual Bridges, Inc. and SFDATA today announced a partnership in which SFDATA will use Virtual Bridges VERDE VDI Gen2 for the company’s on-premises and cloud-hosted virtual desktop offerings. 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. Organizations can manage desktops centrally, reducing the costs and challenges associated with provisioning, updating and securing highly distributed PC environments.

“With desktop virtualization, there is not a one size fits all strategy. While first generation solutions were originally designed for server virtualization, VDI Gen2 is specifically designed for the desktop, delivering lower licensing costs, lower hardware acquisition costs, and reduced IT management labor over VDI Gen1 technologies,” said J. Gage Hutchens, Founder & CEO of SFDATA. “Partnering with Virtual Bridges, our customers now have access to desktop virtualization offerings that deliver unprecedented scalability, offline capabilities, and deployment flexibility to meet their needs.”

With the deadline for Windows XP retirement approaching, desktop virtualization is quickly emerging as a priority for organizations that wish to keep their desktop budget inline. Instead of having to re-image all desktops and laptops, VERDE allows SFDATA customers to create, test and deploy a virtual desktop with Windows 7 in minutes. Additionally, 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 or hosted in the cloud by SFDATA.

“Along with workforce mobility, business continuity and overall desktop transformation, Windows 7 migrations are one of the fastest growing use cases for VDI,” said Jim Curtin, CEO of Virtual Bridges. “Together with SFDATA we can help organizations drive efficiencies, reduce costs, increase scalability and improve performance.”

Among its many benefits, 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.
