Kaviza Launches Reseller Program: Partners Aligned to Sell and Support Kaviza Worldwide

Kaviza's VDI-in-a-box™ 2.0 Eliminates CapEX Barrier to Desktop Virtualization

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Kaviza launches its reseller program to enable partners worldwide to sell and support Kaviza's VDI-in-a-box™ 2.0, the first affordable desktop virtualization solution. Partners around the globe get access to tools, resources and training on Kaviza's VDI-in-a-box™: the first turnkey VDI product that enables customers to get production ready virtual desktops at the cost of a PC, without huge upfront capital expenses. Kaviza has begun a worldwide rollout, with several partners already on-board. Interested resellers, or to find a local partner, please visit: http://www.kaviza.com/Partners.aspx.

"Customer interest in desktop virtualization 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 partners are raving about Kaviza's affordability. "With the current economy, customers want to avoid huge capital expenses. Kaviza is appealing because it runs on commodity servers and you grow on-demand with your needs," said Andy Larkam, CEO of Itopia Consulting. Ty Schwab, Founder of Blackhawk Technology Consulting LLC, added, "Kaviza eliminates VDI bloat-ware," reinforcing that a huge infrastructure simply isn't necessary.

Kaviza is appealing to customers of all sizes. Jim Blair, Managing Partner of Aberdean Consulting, explained, "Kaviza is game-changing technology. They make it simple and cost-effective to provide full virtual desktops, attractive for customers of all sizes -- even customers who want to upgrade from Terminal Services without incurring additional capital expenditure."

Kaviza's flexible deployment architecture gives resellers the ability to meet customers' needs even in bandwidth-constrained environments. "Kaviza is the way to deliver VDI for remote offices without relying on WAN connectivity. Kaviza revolutionizes the management and costs of VDI for branch offices," says Cam Merrett, Managing Director of Pulsar Ltd.
