NIMBOXX Launches Powerful Turn-key VDI Appliance

NIMBOXX, a leader in Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) solutions, today introduced a turn-key virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) appliance, allowing users to rapidly deploy virtual desktops and host server workloads.

Leveraging the award-winning VDI technology from NIMBOXX’s recent acquisition of VERDE VDI software, the NIMBOXX VERDE VDI Appliance (VE-100) is a separate hardware appliance for VDI hosting, acting as the Compute Node in the VDI solution. The VE-100 hosts the VERDE KVM/QEMU system, and each is capable of hosting 100 VDI sessions. Additionally, one or more VE-100 appliances may be combined with the NIMBOXX AU-110 running the MeshOSTM operating system to provide shared storage and host additional server workloads.

With the combined offering, customers no longer have to integrate different third-party components, allowing companies to deploy and scale their virtualization infrastructure at a significantly lower cost of ownership, starting with as few as 100 VDI sessions. Key benefits include:

  • Lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) of a virtualization solution
  • Ease of use and initial deployment
  • Single vendor solution
  • Award winning VERDE VDI software

“Historically, VDI has been synonymous with expensive frameworks cobbled together from multiple vendors, with disparate storage and complex deployments across hardware and software providers,” said Andy Salo, vice president of product management at NIMBOXX. “The combined HCI+VDI solution from NIMBOXX is by far the easiest to use and most cost effective in the industry, with total pricing per user including all hardware, software, and hypervisors priced less than that of competitive offerings on the market.”

“As a long standing VERDE business partner, we are very excited about the new NIMBOXX VERDE VDI appliance,” said Jeffrey Borsini at BizCarta Inc. “This will make an already easy-to-deploy VDI solution even easier.”

The NIMBOXX VERDE VE-100 can be purchased standalone and integrated with an existing NIMBOXX environment. Alternatively, the VE-100 is available through a HCI+VDI Starter Bundle, which features an AU-110 HCI appliance bundled with a VE-100 VDI device.


The NIMBOXX VERDE VE-100 and the HCI+VDI Starter Bundle are available immediately. To learn more visit:
