VMBlog talks to VDIworks about the future of virtualization

VMBlog is one of the oldest, and one of our most favourite online virtualization publications. We’ve been fans for a while and have enjoyed their broad coverage of companies and technologies in the VDI space. Recently, VMBlog sat down to talk with Amir Husain, our President and CEO, about his views on the future of virtualization generally, and VDI specifically. The discussion was pretty interesting! Here’s an extract, followed by a link the VMBlog piece: “One idea whose time I believe has finally arrived, is Desktops-as-a-Service. Under this model, the device will no longer primarily be an OS/application execution endpoint, but rather a visualization layer – a window into a virtual computer with unlimited capacity, growing and shrinking in an elastic fashion at some highly secure remote datacenter. Of course, end point devices will provide ever richer means of interaction via multi-touch gestures, visual cues ala Kinect, voice recognition ala Siri and numerous other methods. This means that processing at the endpoint will still occur, it will just be of a different nature. […]

Virtual Strategy Magazine interviews Amir Husain, CEO of VDIworks

Virtual Strategy Magazine is one of the premier publications covering the virtualization industry. They recently conducted an extensive interview with our CEO, Amir Husain, on a variety of topics. Some interesting extracts are listed below, along with a link to the full interview: VSM: It is never a one size fits all when it comes to customer requirements within an establishment. Is VDIworks only providing a solution for a niche market with specific needs or can VDIworks help companies in general with their management of physical, as well as virtual, resources? AH: ThatÔÇÖs a great question. As I explained previously, we believe that virtual resource management in of itself is almost meaningless. There is no such thing as a virtual resource in isolation. It needs a physical server, a Hypervisor, a physical network, a connection to a physical endpoint, and so on and so forth. Virtualization is wonderful as an abstraction and it has many benefits, but it does not replace the need for physical management. We understand that, and the design approach weÔÇÖve taken with our products mirrors that understanding. ThatÔÇÖs precisely why we support management standards like WMI, IPMI, AMT and SNMP to provide integration with physical system components. Physical and virtual resources are both first-class managed assets in our management console. […]
