Virtual Computer's Market Momentum Accelerates Growth of Intelligent Desktop Virtualization

WESTFORD, MA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - Virtual Computer, the market leader in intelligent desktop virtualization (IDV), announced that it dramatically accelerated the growth of the IDV market in 2011 and is poised to continue driving the adoption of IDV as a better alternative to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) in 2012. While VDI has been heavily promoted by virtualization giants VMware and Citrix, Virtual Computer has demonstrated that IDV offers better performance at a lower cost by combining centralized management with local execution of virtual desktops -- delivering better ROI to companies and a better user experience to employees.

  • Rapid Growth of New Customers & Proven Customer ROI
    In 2011, Virtual Computer demonstrated significant acceleration of new customers with hundreds of customers now using the NxTop IDV solution. Customers demonstrated a rapid ROI with reductions in PC support issues ranging from 50-90% and also demonstrated the ability to recover from malware or corruptions over 1000x faster than native PCs.

  • 5X Organic Growth in Channel Partners
    Virtual Computer experienced over 5X organic growth channel partners -- driven by partners proactively approaching the company to resell NxTop in order to deliver a higher performing and more cost effective desktop virtualization solution than their competitors.

  • Global Distribution Agreement with the #2 PC-Manufacturer in the World
    Virtual Computer is the only IDV solution provider to have sealed a global distribution agreement with a major PC vendor, Lenovo, which surpassed Dell as the #2 PC-manufacturer in the world in 2011. Lenovo selected Virtual Computer as its desktop virtualization solution of choice.

  • Confirmation of Market Leadership by Independent Intel Survey
    Virtual Computer was confirmed to be the leader in Intelligent Desktop Virtualization in a survey by Intel. The top four companies were Microsoft, Citrix, and VMware. With the other companies focused on app virtualization and VDI, Virtual Computer was the leading company focused on IDV.

  • Affirmation by Leading Industry Awards
    In 2011, Virtual Computer launched NxTop 4, winning a number of industry awards including 2011 Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation Awards, Best of VMWorld 2011 Awards for Desktop Virtualization, and 2011 Red Herring 100 Global Awards.
