Pano Logic Launches Complete One-Step Solution for VDI

Industry's First Pre-Configured, High-Availability VDI Infrastructure Plus Zero Clients Eases Deployment and Management for Power Users

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Pano Logic, ( the leader in zero client desktop virtualization, today announced two Pano Express one-step virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions. Pano Express SMB and Pano Express HA include the complete VDI infrastructure -- both hardware and software -- required to support up to 60 power users, plus zero client endpoints. The one-step VDI solution is delivered with preloaded and preconfigured servers using VMware vSphere 4, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, and up to 60 Pano zero client systems. The Pano Express HA solution provides customers with an added layer of protection using DataCore failover and replication technology for high availability. Pano Express makes it simple for administrators to move from PCs to VDI in one step.

"Distributed enterprises and small to mid-size businesses are looking to mitigate the risk and complexity of launching virtual desktop computing. Decisions about the hypervisor platform, broker, manager, protocol and endpoint plus infrastructure sizing can be a daunting task to already under-resourced teams," said John Kish, president and CEO of Pano Logic, Inc. "The Pano Express solutions make moving from PC to VC (virtual computing) simple, while easing management burden and radically reducing total cost of ownership."

The benefits of VDI have persuaded a growing number of small to mid-size companies, and remote offices within large distributed enterprises to move from PCs to virtual computing (VCs). The lack of resources and expertise required to evaluate and size infrastructure requirements for virtual desktop deployment have proved to be an impediment to these under resourced IT teams. Pano Express SMB and Pano Express HA resolve that by providing a one-step solution to VDI making it simple to get up and running quickly with two solutions sized for power end users with a heavy workload. The added benefits of Pano zero client computing, such as eliminating 100 percent of the endpoint management and security breaches, reducing energy consumption by 88 percent, and lowering overall TCO substantially make the move even more compelling.

Analyst Quote: Pano Express SMB:

"Small businesses often get hung up evaluating remote display protocols for their virtual desktop initiatives, but that is usually not a problem when desktop traffic is localized within a building," said Eric Ogren, principal analyst of the Ogren Group. "Successful VDI implementations start with an easy to manage back-end so the evaluation can focus more on user experiences and less on time-consuming desktop administration."

Analyst Quote: Pano Express HA:

"Remote offices simply cannot afford single points of failure or complex high availability schemes when centralizing desktop configurations with virtualization," said Eric Ogren, principal analyst of the Ogren Group. "The ability to confidently offer pre-configured virtual desktops with secure data storage in a fault tolerant appliance allows organizations to effectively realize the cost savings, high performance, and enhanced security of VDI."

Pano Express HA and Pano Express SMB are available now. For more information about Pano Express one-step solutions and pricing please contact 877.677.PANO or
