Unidesk today announced the general availability of Unidesk 1.0.
Unidesk leverages VMware vSphere and extends virtual desktop solutions such as VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop with 100 percent personalization for end users, together with single image management and storage savings for IT organizations.
- 100% Personalization – Drives end user acceptance of virtual desktops by sustaining all user customizations – including user-installed applications, profile customizations, and documents – through desktop logouts, reboots, and operating system updates;
- Effortless Management – Enables IT administrators to efficiently create and update many desktops from single images of Microsoft Windows and applications, including applications with system services and boot-time drivers that application virtualization solutions cannot deliver;
- Storage Savings – Shrinks the amount of storage needed to implement desktop virtualization by preventing duplicate copies of Microsoft Windows and IT-managed applications from being stored.
Alliance and channel partners have also been anticipating the launch of Unidesk, which provides a key solution to help customers realize greater returns on virtual desktop investments.
Unidesk Composite Virtualization technology is the patent-pending layering innovation that gives both end users and IT ideal virtual desktops. All user customizations are captured and stored separately in personalization layers. Microsoft Windows and applications such as Microsoft Office are created and maintained by IT in separate operating system and application layers.
By dynamically compositing these layers at boot time, Unidesk ensures that every desktop has the same set of patched and compliant base layers, while every user has a consistent, personal desktop and application experience.
Unidesk 1.0 is available immediately through Unidesk Solution Partners who are experts in VMware, Citrix, and Microsoft solutions. Pricing starts at $150 per named user and decreases with volume.
