When we announced our VDI 2.0 solution with our friends at Nutanix last Monday, we hoped that others would share our excitement.
Noted industry blogger and author of The VDI Delusion, Brian Madden has written about Workspot before, so we reached out to him to see what he thought of our new development. In his post published this morning, he gives his take on what this announcement can mean to CIOs, Enterprise Architects and IT directors looking to optimize their organizations.
Nutanix plus Workspot: What does it Mean?
After sharing a summary of what Workspot is designed to do, (nutshell: delivery of the right app in the right way) he then summarizes the things that make this new state of affairs thought-provoking.
- Interesting: Nutanix now has a hardware platform that gives you enterprise-level virtualization management without VMware, Microsoft, or Citrix.
- More Interesting: Workspot can leverage that platform to deliver Windows desktops and apps, again all without Citrix or Microsoft.
- More Interesting Again: Consider that instead of just delivering remote apps, Workspot is also intelligently delivering client-apporpriate data, local apps, local browsers, SSO, VPNs, files, 2FA.
- Most Interesting? His words: Workspot is doing this for 15 bucks a month per user. So, what, like half or 1/3 the cost of CWC.
We really appreciate it when someone like Brian writes about us. He really gets the nuts and bolts of what we do and why we do it. Check out the whole blog post Workspot enters the full VDI market using Nutanix’s HCI platform and let us know what you think in the comments below.
