Virtual Bridges, developers of the VERDE suite for desktop virtualization, and ZSL, an ISV and global software solutions and services provider, today announced a worldwide reseller agreement.
Under the terms of the agreement, the Virtual Bridges VERDE suite will be an integral component of ZSL’s PowerCube DaaS (Desktop as a Service) packaged service offering.
VERDE 3.0, announced in December 2009, is the only solution available today which runs in both networked and disconnected environments. In addition, VERDE uniquely offers the ability to run Linux and Windows guest sessions, enabling significant operating cost reductions over Windows-only environments. In partnership with the IBM Client for Smart Work and Canonical’s Ubuntu server and desktop offerings, VERDE also provides the choice of opting for a lower-cost cloud computing alternative.
PowerCube, launched in January at the 15th annual Lotusphere, was recognized as a finalist for the IBM Lotus Awards recognizing exceptional IBM PartnerWorld members, in the category of Best CTO Award. ZSL’s PowerCube DaaS is a virtualized desktop environment powered by IBM’s Client for Smart Work running on Linux desktops and virtually enabled using VERDE and available as private and public cloud offering and as on-premise model. ZSL offers PowerCube DaaS with suite of services that includes end- user segmentation, TCO analysis, BPM-based role identification and SOA to application migration, pilot and production deployment.
Currently, Virtual Bridges offers its product suite through a network of more than 40 partners. Today’s announcement marks a major step toward realizing its aggressive partner network development strategy. To learn more about joining Virtual Bridges’ rapidly expanding partner network, click here.
