This week we announced a new technology alliance partnership with Gridstore, a fast-growing provider of hyper-converged, all-flash infrastructure for data centers using Windows Server and Hyper-V. This is a great example of a customer-led alliance. Before we even started working together, joint customers figured out that Gridstore HCI with Unidesk and Windows Server RDS could deliver super-fast virtual desktops that are easier to manage than PCs. At only $500-600 per user all-in! Finally, VDI for far less than the cost of PCs!
Infrastructure performance. Complexity. Cost. The 3 big blockers to VDI have fallen with our new alliance. What's unique about the combination of Gridstore and Unidesk that ushers in this new era of VDI price/performance? What are our customers and Microsoft saying about the combination? Let's take a look.Microsoft Partner, Unidesk, Gridstore | Read this post >
