ScaleMatrix Launches ScaleDesktop, a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure for Remote Workforces
ScaleMatrix announced that it has launched ScaleDesktop, a fully managed virtual desktop solution that enables an organization's internal and remote users to access organizational IT resources on virtually any device, securely experiencing a seamless Windows desktop, anywhere there is an Internet connection. 

"Organizations are increasingly expanding to remote workforces and are looking for solutions that give them the security and control that they need to be able to scale their remote operations, securely, consistently, and with complete application and operating system support to keep their own internal IT resources from being overwhelmed," said Chris Orlando, CEO of ScaleMatrix. "With ScaleDesktop, we are offering a hosted VDI solution that not only performs at the top of its class in both performance and security, but also delivers white-glove service and support that can be customized to meet the needs of the organization."

ScaleDesktop delivers a fully managed virtual desktop solution that enables an organization's internal and/or remote employees the ability to utilize a device, such as a laptop or tablet, in a seamless, consistent manner. The service runs on the ScaleMatrix performance-oriented ScaleCloud Enterprise infrastructure, which employs powerful Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8280M Processors (Cascade Lake) extending robust compute capabilities out to the remote edges, enabling users to work remotely on standard IT equipment but leveraging the power of a performance cloud environment.

"Security is one of the biggest concerns for organizations as they consider a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure to support their mission critical operations," said Orlando. "Security has been a key aspect of the ScaleMatrix DNA, as we have built our ScaleCloud Enterprise infrastructure around providing data integrity through industry standard encryption and authentication protocols, two factor authentication, including biometric identity verification for server level access, and on-call support that can be made available around the clock, 365 days a year."

ScaleDesktop features include:

  • A customized "Golden Image" template that can be restored and updated on each log-off, enabling consistency in performance across the organization.
  • Access anywhere there is available Internet service.
  • Security features include the industry-standard link encryption and authentication methods such as IPsec, SSH and MPLS, ability to make updates while users are logged off, and the physical controls such as biometric access to servers, and an armed security presence in the data center.
  • Customizable desktops for branches/departments.
  • Professional Support with complete application and operating system support.

Professional Support options include a Gold package, which enables U.S. based support available Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm nationwide, or a Platinum package which enables U.S.based support 24/7/365. Pricing starts at $63/per user for a 100 seat package. Small businesses will be able to take advantage of ScaleDesktop with pricing starting at 5 seats.
