Ericom Software, a provider of Application Access and Virtualization solutions, today announced that its PowerTerm WebConnect now provides access to virtual desktops running on Parallels Virtuozzo Containers, an OS-level server virtualization technology that partitions the underlying operating system into multiple isolated containers, so that many workloads or virtual desktops can be run simultaneously on the same physical box.
The company states that desktop virtualization offers organizations numerous benefits such as desktop management, application compatibility, and reduced desktop power consumption and space requirements. Together, PowerTerm WebConnect and Parallels Virtuozzo Containers accelerate the delivery of virtual desktops and its benefits for the organization, claims the company. It says that it's Desktop Virtualization and Presentation Virtualization solution, PowerTerm WebConnect, provides secure and managed access to virtual desktops, Windows Terminal Servers, Blade PCs and legacy host systems.
Eran Heyman, Ericom Founder and CEO commented, "Ericom and Parallels can now offer organizations a comprehensive platform for desktop virtualization. The intuitiveness of the combined solution expedites virtual desktop deployments - allowing organizations to quickly leverage the capabilities and cost-savings of a virtualized desktop environment. We provide the flexibility of having VDI hosted internally by the IT department or externally by a third party service provider."
"This partnership enables us to further meet the needs of organizations interested in reducing their total cost of desktop ownership while simplifying management, support and protection of their computing environment," said Serguei Beloussov, Parallels CEO. "Parallels Virtuozzo Containers delivers up to three times the number of virtual desktops per physical server versus a hypervisor-based VDI solution, making it a far more cost-effective solution."
