Dutch City Deploys Virtual Desktop Infrastructure and Integrated Phone Systems

Leostream Corporation, a leading developer of virtual hosted desktop software, today announced that the Dutch City of Veenendaal has deployed the Leostream Connection Broker and Mitel’s unified communications system to provide a fully integrated VDI and phone system for city workers. The joint solution allows Veenendaal employees to roam between thin clients and enjoy the experience and convenience of single sign-on access to their desktop and phone. In addition, the VDI deployment includes access to Terminal Server sessions so end users can be just as productive at home as they are at the office.

By switching to VDI and integrating their communications system, Veenendaal improved the end-user experience while lowering their operational costs. A complete description of the Veenendaal deployment can be found in a case study available on the Leostream Web site (http://www.leostream.com/resources/case_studies.php).

“The joint Leostream and Mitel solution is fully integrated, flexible and, in the end, made the end users happy. End users have a single interface to access their phone and desktop,” said Wilco van Dijk, New Business Director for Mitel – Benelux. “Our joint solution has the potential to change how a number of organizations do business and provide resources for their employees.”

“Leostream has long been recognized as the leader in providing enterprises with a vendor-neutral Connection Broker that easily integrates disparate systems into a cohesive, robust VDI,” said Michael Palin, CEO of Leostream. “Our partnership with Mitel continues our practice of allowing enterprises to choose the best technologies to reach their business goals and end-user requirements and provides an integrated VDI and PBX solution that is unique on the market.”

Leostream provides the critical connection broker technology required for enterprises to achieve successful large-scale desktop virtualization implementations. The Leostream Connection Broker is the industry’s most widely deployed vendor-independent connection broker, enabling enterprises to integrate complex arrays of clients, back-end systems and protocols. Hundreds of enterprises in financial services, healthcare, government and other sectors rely on Leostream to “make desktop virtualization work”.
