Posted by Samantha Foster on Jan 6, 2016

Today's big channel news: Cloud Distribution Ltd, a next generation value-added distributor that specializes in bringing innovative security, virtualization, and storage solutions to the UK market, has added Unidesk to their portfolio!

Existing and new channel partners will now be better equipped to meet the growing demand for Unidesk as their customers look to simplify desktop virtualization, application virtualization, and server-based computing deployments on-premises and in the cloud.

Cloud Distribution is also adding Unidesk technology partner Gridstore to their portfolio to disrupt the UK VDI market. With the combination of Gridstore, Unidesk, and Microsoft RDS,  Cloud Distribution's VARs can offer high performance virtual desktops at less than ₤400 per user "all-in."

Gridstore and Unidesk Webinar: Q&A Answers and VDI Survey Results

Posted by Kelly Murphy, Gridstore and Tom Rose, Unidesk on Nov 24, 2015

This is a joint blog by Kelly Murphy, Founder and CTO, Gridstore and Tom Rose, Chief Marketing Officer, Unidesk.

We had a great time the other day presenting on a very interactive webinar with Dave Kawula, Microsoft MVP. The topic was Breakthrough Economics for VDI – how Gridstore HyperConverged Infrastructure coupled with Unidesk application layering technology and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) enable virtual desktops to be implemented for far less than the cost of physical PCs - $550 per user “all-in.”

We were asked many, many questions during the webinar and while we answered a lot, there were still a number that we didn’t get to. We’ve put together the answers to those questions as well as the results of our VDI survey in this blog. Dave also presented a live demo of the Gridstore/Unidesk VDI solution. If you weren’t able to attend, we highly recommend you watch the webinar replay to learn how your business can benefit from this solution.

Hyperconverged Infrastructure & App Layering Transform End User Computing

Posted by TJ Racherla on Nov 19, 2015

By themselves, application layering and hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) are game-changers for IT organizations. Put them together, and they completely transform how Windows desktops and applications can be delivered in the new mobile enterprise. That's never been more evident than in the last 2 weeks, with Unidesk and our HCI partners Nutanix and Gridstore making news for modernizing customers' end user computing environments, while reducing costs.

Gridstore-Unidesk Partnership Ushers in New Era of VDI Price/Performance

Posted by Jordan Murphy on Nov 6, 2015

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.
