Eliminating CapEX Barrier to Desktop Virtualisation
Sunnyvale, CA – October 14, 2009 – Kaviza, the pioneer in affordable desktop virtualisation, announces the general availability of VDI-in-a-boxTM 2.0, the only turnkey VDI product that enables customers to deploy virtual desktops at the cost of a PC. Kaviza eliminates the high upfront capital investment needed with current Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) by removing expensive shared storage and high speed interconnects.
With just commodity servers, Kaviza's VDI-in-a-boxTM 2.0 provides all the functionality needed for production-ready virtual desktops – including desktop provisioning, management, load balancing, and advanced features like high-availability, at one-third to one-fourth the cost of other VDI solutions.
“We created Kaviza to address the unmet need for a cost-effective, easy-to-manage and scalable virtual desktop solution,” says Kumar K. Goswami, Co-Founder & CEO of Kaviza. “Kaviza’s VDI-in-a-boxTM 2.0 eliminates the VDI CapEx barrier – now you can deploy VDI for thousands of dollars as opposed to hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
“Customer interest in desktop virtualisation is high, but for many the huge upfront CapEX cost of VDI has been a roadblock,” said Kumar K. Goswami, Co-Founder and CEO of Kaviza. “With Kaviza, customers get a full virtual desktop solution at one-third to one-fourth the cost of alternatives.”
Customers and consultancies are raving about Kaviza's affordability. “With the current economy, customers want to avoid huge capital expenses.
