NIMBOXX Inks Partnership with VDIworks to Deliver Virtual Desktops

NIMBOXX, creator of the atomic unit of the software-defined data center, today announced a partnership with VDIworks to deliver its award-winning desktop virtualization solution on the NIMBOXX data center-in-a-box. The joint offering will leverage the NIMBOXX hyper-converged infrastructure platform to reduce the cost and complexity of managing VDI deployments, while improving performance and the end user experience.

VDIworks’ Virtual Desktop Platform is an end-to-end VDI management system that combines connection brokering, VM management, health, alerting, inventory, physical management and broad support for remote protocols, all in a pre-integrated application. The solution is used by organizations ranging from SMBs to large enterprises in education, healthcare, financial services and technology to reduce desktop maintenance, improve management, provide a more reliable experience, and provide disaster recovery and backup.

With NIMBOXX, VDIworks can reduce the backend infrastructure by 50 percent, drastically lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO). The NIMBOXX systems also provide a dramatic increase in I/O, allowing VDIworks to deliver the lowest per-desktop VDI pricing while providing a flawless end user experience every time.

“There are many components in a typical desktop virtualization solution that are often provided by different vendors and are not integrated. This segregation can lead to complexity, IT staff training issues, management complexity and vendor management issues,” said Muhammad Umair, vice president of software group at VDIworks. “Switching to NIMBOXX for the back-end systems is allowing us to deliver a high performance virtual desktop experience to power users and task workers alike, for significantly less cost and complexity than other solutions.”

“We’re delivering an out-of-the-box experience that eliminates the cost and complexity of traditional VDI deployments for a much more reliable, predictable, performant end user experience,” said David Cauthron, founder and CTO of NIMBOXX. “Even better, we’re allowing organizations to start small and scale up as their business needs evolve. We’re thrilled to be working with VDIworks as one of the leaders in the VDI space, and we’re excited to help them accelerate the deployment of virtual desktops for customers across all industries.”
