Virtual Computer today announced the availability of NxTop 4.
With this new release, IT departments are equipped for the first time with a desktop virtualization solution that offers both centralized and distributed storage options for virtual machines while still utilizing the enormous computing power at the PC end-point.
By combining network-based storage with a stateless client-side hypervisor, Virtual Computer’s customers can now keep all their data in the data center, but deliver a high-fidelity desktop experience at a fraction of the cost of server-hosted VDI.
The underpinnings of this technology were first introduced to the market in 2009 by Lenovo, which is now working with Virtual Computer to extend the solution and deliver it on NxTop.
As part of the collaboration, Lenovo provided core technology and patents that bring this technology to a broad set of Lenovo computers and PCs powered by 2nd generation Intel Core vPro processors.
NxTop 4 offers the highest performance, lowest cost desktop virtualization platform and is available immediately via Virtual Computer’s global channel partners or through Lenovo customer factory install.
