Virtual Computer Offers Free NxTop Licenses to Assist Organizations Challenged by VDI Implementations

Company Helps Businesses Battling With Server-Hosted VDI Projects to Recover Their Investments

WESTFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 27, 2011) - Virtual Computer, the market leader in intelligent desktop virtualization (IDV), today announced it will offer free NxTop licenses to organizations struggling with the high costs, complex deployments, and poor user experiences of server-hosted VDI. A proven solution, NxTop offers what server-hosted VDI promised for years but has not delivered: a solution that balances the manageability and security needs of IT professionals with the freedom and flexibility end users need to maximize their productivity.

"We recognize that many companies have invested in server-hosted VDI, but it has often failed to meet expectations," said John Glendenning, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Virtual Computer. "Everyone agrees that desktop virtualization presents an unparalleled opportunity for improving end-user productivity and IT operations. For companies struggling to deploy VDI, Virtual Computer offers some respite with NxTop, the intelligent desktop virtualization solution that was recently honored by both the VMworld 2011 Desktop Virtualization awards and The Wall Street Journal 2011 Technology Innovation Awards."

Many companies have found server-hosted VDI to be difficult and expensive to deploy. There are numerous challenges associated with server-hosted VDI, including high infrastructure costs, performance issues, and limited mobility, which have forced companies to delay or freeze implementations. By combining centralized management with local execution, Intelligent Desktop Virtualization with NxTop solves these problems, allowing businesses to reap the advantages of desktop virtualization without extensive capital outlay, without compromising user experience, and without completely re-working desktop management practices. In fact, NxTop is so efficient that the server infrastructure an organization created just for its VDI pilot is often sufficient to run NxTop for its entire organization.

Travis Street, president of CTS Consulting, says, "Our customers are looking for desktop virtualization solutions that enhance user productivity, reduce support and operations costs, and deliver immediate return on investment. The technical limitations and high costs associated with deploying server-hosted VDI present obstacles to many companies. NxTop breaks down these obstacles and delivers exactly the type of innovation these companies need."

Organizations looking to replace VDI licenses will receive one replacement NxTop license for free along with each NxTop license purchased for rolling out desktop virtualization to the rest of the organization. To find out more, please visit
