Liquid Networx Joins Pano Logic Reseller Network
Pano Logic Expands Aggressive Channel Program With Addition of Telecom Partner
REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - Pano Logic, the leader in zero-client desktop virtualization, today announced Liquid Networx, a San Antonio-based systems integrator, has joined its network of worldwide resellers that assist organizations with centralizing their desktop computing infrastructures using Pano Logic's innovative hardware and software solution. As a channel partner, Liquid Networx will bring the Pano Logic solution to regional organizations seeking to upgrade their traditional PC or thin client environments. Pano Logic utilizes a network of more than 250 partners worldwide to deliver its solutions to end users and assist in deployment and support.
"Our customers are looking for ways to reduce their IT spend specifically when it comes to PC refresh cycles and are finding that desktop virtualization with the Pano Logic zero client is the most cost-effective way to provide end-user computing," said Don Douglas, CEO of Liquid Networx. "We are fielding a tremendous influx of inquiries from organizations that are seeking the dramatic savings in support and maintenance that Pano Logic represents. Momentum for VDI is growing and we're pleased to become one of Pano Logic's authorized solution providers so we can deliver Pano Logic to our customers."
Douglas also values the security benefits of the Pano Device. "Besides cost savings, which works well with the Liquid Networx telecom lifecycle business, we also see numerous benefits in working with Pano Logic to boost security for clients that have concerns with traditional fat-client environments. This technology works well for many companies attempting to deal with complex compliance requirements."
Pano Logic's purpose-built solution for desktop virtualization is sold through strategic channel resellers, who have core expertise and have invested in Pano Logic certification. Pano Logic offers the only zero client certification program to train resellers on assessing, deploying and optimizing Pano Logic across a range of network infrastructures. Partners ensure that Pano Logic pilot programs are deployed successfully and provide the guidance needed to calculate total cost of ownership to achieve buy-in within the organization.
In addition, Pano certified partners may offer the QuickStart Service, a one-day program that pairs new customers with a certified partner for assessment, planning, building and managing new rollouts. The QuickStart service also sets up end users with post-implementation ROI models and TCO savings reports for evaluation and reporting purposes.
"Our resellers are the foundation that enables us to give our customers the best experience possible in the selection, deployment and operation of our zero client VDI solution," said Dave Butler, Vice President of Sales, Pano Logic. "With desktop virtualization highlighted as one of the most significant and strategic technologies in the IT landscape, the opportunity for resellers is substantial. We welcome partners like Liquid Networx to help us revolutionize desktop computing and play an important role in our network."
The Pano System is a complete end-to end virtual desktop solution that includes the Pano Manager, a virtual machine manager and connection broker, the unique Pano Device zero client, and Pano Direct, providing the connection to completely centralized virtual desktops.
