Qumranet's Solid ICE Anchors Effective Hosted Desktop Virtualization
Ovum Report Provides An Overview of Desktop Virtualization As Well As Opportunities and Challenges for Qumranet In This Space

 

Qumranet announced a report published by analyst firm Ovum.

The report, "Qumranet's Solid ICE Anchors Effective Hosted Desktop Virtualization," provides an overview of desktop virtualization as well as opportunities and challenges for Qumranet in this space. It can be viewed here.

By centrally hosting desktops in KVM virtual machines on servers in the corporate data center, Solid ICE (Independent Computing Environment) gives IT administrators greater control over desktop image management, provisioning management, policy enforcement and security. Solid ICE also offers IT managers access to remote desktops to provide maintenance and support, as well as instant, inherent disaster recovery. In addition, businesses deploying a green IT strategy can achieve a savings of up to two thirds on electric power with Solid ICE.

"Desktop virtualization - following in the footsteps of (and leveraging) the quickly-expanding server virtualization market - is gaining a higher visibility among enterprise customers thanks to its potential management and cost benefits. Qumranet's Solid ICE is well positioned to corral these benefits into a one-stop-shop solution and demonstrate how hosted virtualized desktops can improve customers' IT management practices," said John Madden, Research Director, Ovum in the report.

"Ovum's report paints a picture of what is possible with desktop virtualization and how Qumranet is well-positioned to take advantage of it," said Benny Schnaider, CEO, Qumranet. "Launched a month ago, Solid ICE goes beyond Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and other retrofitted server virtualization solutions to provide a complete desktop experience for end users running a thin client or repurposed PC."
