V3 Systems, the leader in Desktop Replacement Virtualization (DRV), announced today that they will partner with EnergySolutions, a global provider of integrated services and solutions to the nuclear industry, to replace up to 2,000 current physical desktops with a series of V3 virtual desktop deployments over the next two years. V3 Systems is the first and only company to provide Desktop Replacement Virtualization to the SME/Enterprise market place.
“EnergySolutions tried several virtual desktop implementations prior to contacting V3 Systems, but they all wound up being expensive, slow and ultimately unsatisfactory,” said Carol Fineagan, CIO for EnergySolutions. “We needed a company that would be able to streamline desktop administration, support rapid deployment of centralized applications, speed up our new hire onboarding processes, and keep data secure for employees worldwide.”
V3 Systems was able to provide EnergySolutions with a paid proof-of-concept installation that included a single entry-level V3 Appliance (virtual desktop server) configured for 50 users at their current usage level.
In February 2011, EnergySolutions set up a test load capacity scenario of the V3 Appliance at their Salt Lake City corporate offices. “During the installation, our IT staff experienced almost no learning curve. The V3 Appliance integrates with VMware so well, if your staff is familiar with vSphere or vCenter, the V3 Appliance becomes just another VMware ESX Host,” explained Fineagan.
EnergySolutions expects to continue benefiting from the V3 Appliance’s centralized management for desktop administration, high speed performance, and freedom to access desktops remotely on client devices from anywhere without performance degradation.
