Pano Logic Eases Deployment and Management of Desktop Virtualization Supporting VMware View and Citrix XenDesktop

Zero Client Desktop Virtualization Vendor Releases Pano System 5, Enabling Platform-Agnostic Scale-Out Architecture

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - Pano Logic (, the leader in zero client desktop virtualization, today announced Pano System 5, its newest zero client desktop virtualization hardware and software solution. Pano System 5 introduces Pano Controller, a new modular architecture that enables flexible deployment options for large heterogeneous virtual environments, and introduces Pano Maestro, to ease device monitoring of distributed zero client endpoints. Additionally, Pano System 5 offers improved user experience and extends support for the most recent VMware releases, vSphere 5 and VMware View 5.

Large distributed organizations deploying virtual desktop infrastructure are challenged to develop a fully centralized environment. The extensive timeline to properly plan and assess the resources required, coupled with hefty price and network limitations have pressed many organizations to centralize the management of desktop computing while leaving compute power at the branch or remote office. This allows IT administrators to take advantage of existing systems, and platform expertise without the high cost of replacement to support one VDI infrastructure versus another. Until today, IT managers could not monitor their devices across all platforms. With Pano System 5, IT administrators can centralize the management of multiple distributed VDI deployments through VMware View or Citrix XenDesktop while significantly reducing the amount of onsite maintenance in each remote office. With Pano Maestro, they can also monitor all of their Pano Zero Client devices through one interface, whether those devices are supported by VMware, Citrix or Microsoft virtualization platforms.

Pano System 5 is built for the future to enable smooth, scalable deployment of large virtual desktop infrastructure with minimal effort. Feature highlights include:

Pano Controller - This new modular architecture provides a lightweight and flexible virtual appliance that works with the customer's choice of desktop broker, such as VMware View, Citrix XenDesktop or Pano Virtual Desktop Broker and with preferred hypervisors such as ESX, XenServer or HyperV, enabling platform independence and ease of management for large scale deployments.

Pano Maestro - An enhanced scale out architecture allows IT administrators to monitor heterogeneous environments across VMware View or Citrix XenDesktop, enabling radical centralization for growing organizations across distributed environments.

Improved User Experience - Software enhancements enable 30-40 percent reductions in network bandwidth utilization, resulting in a smoother computing experience with office productivity applications and 25 percent better video frame rate quality.

Enhanced Support for VMware - Pano System 5 supports the newest releases from VMware, vSphere 5 and VMware View 5.

"Large enterprises are realizing the cost, security and management benefits of a centralized virtual desktop infrastructure, but struggle with optimizing deployments across large distributed environments," said John Kish, CEO, Pano Logic. "Pano Logic continues to advance state-of-the-art desktop virtualization with Pano System 5, which eases the complexity of larger enterprise installations while improving the quality of service for all of our users."

Pano System 5 is available today. For more information go to, or contact Pano Logic at 877.677.PANO.
