Propalms Acquires Pano Logic Rights to Provide Sales and Support

Propalms, a provider of server-based computing technology based on Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, hypervisor-based VDI and enterprise remote access solutions, has made public its recent acquisition of "Pano Logic rights."

Remember the Pano Logic Zero Client VDI platform?  It was a complete end-to-end solution built for desktop virtualization, aimed at simplifying the complexity in management of virtual desktops.  At the heart of the Pano System was the Pano G2 Zero Client, a whole new class of desktop computing hardware.  Pano endpoints were referred to as “zero clients” because, unlike traditional thin clients, they had no CPU, no memory, no operating system, no drivers, no software and no moving parts.  Pano Zero client simply connects the peripheral input-output devices-keyboard, mouse, up to two DVI and VGA displays, and audio output, along with other USB peripherals to a virtualized Microsoft Windows desktop virtual machine and the Pano controller for VDI running on a hypervisor server in your data center.

But Pano Logic closed up shop in the middle of the night, and left its customers holding the bag.  And not much has been said about it since.  It was one of those "weird" virtualization stories that will go down in the books.  Not because another virtualization startup failed, but because of the way in which it happened.

But if Pano Logic customers haven't already found a new home, some 8 months later, Propalms appears ready to step in and help.  The company has acquired the rights to provide sales and support to Pano Logic's channel partner and customer base.  By whom?  Unknown.  But the company has been reaching out to "existing" Pano Logic customers and channel partners, letting them know that Propalms will be honoring all existing maintenance and support contracts – and that no additional costs will be incurred by the customer.
They also said that all existing and new RMA issues will be resolved. 

Propalms Director and CTO Vijender Yadav, said “Pano Logic is a great addition to Propalms’ product portfolio. Pano Logic brings the endpoint hardware to complete the comprehensive VDI offering from Propalms.”

“Our customers and partners now have an option to choose the VDI model that suits them best. They can go with the award winning Pano Logic zero client deployment within LAN for hypervisor based VDI or go for Propalms TSE for shared hosted desktop based VDI. Propalms OneGate gives them the required security features to access the VDI infrastructure for implementing BYOD and having remote access for roaming and mobile users,” added Yadav.

Pano Logic will become a division of Propalms and they will be sending out regular updates to customers.

If you are an old Pano Logic customer and you haven't yet switched to something else, you might want to contact, or call 407-562-1868 to find out what your options are with your old setup.
