Austin, Texas – May 29, 2007 – ClearCube Technology, the market leader in PC blade centralized computing solutions, today announced an OEM agreement with virtualization software leader VMware to deliver a new PC blade virtualization solution for VMware Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). ClearCube is the first to certify its PC blade solution for VMware VDI. With its Sentral™ v5.5 management software, ClearCube now provides VMware VDI solutions that enable organizations to more efficiently manage physical and virtualized computing resources. (For more information about ClearCube Sentral v5.5, please see the April 10 press release at http://www.clearcube.com/view/releases/clearcube_sentral_v5_5.htm)
"ClearCube's leading PC blade solution for VMware VDI is a unique offering that provides reliable end-user computing power in VDI deployments," said Bruce Cohen, president and CEO, ClearCube. "With VMware VDI and our Sentral v5.5 management software, ClearCube is bringing to market a true PC virtualization solution. The desktop virtualization solution enables organizations to make the most of their investment in virtualization by supplying reliable and cost-effective computing power to all employees."
"As virtualization technology spreads across the enterprise, organizations need to manage both virtual and physical resources efficiently," said Roger Kay, president, Endpoint Technologies Associates. "Joining the VMware Hardware Alliance Program allows ClearCube to deliver a complete virtual desktop solution based on PC blades."
ClearCube centralized computing solutions, including the company's PC blades and award winning Sentral management software, enable organizations to consolidate computing resources in the datacenter to improve security and ensure uptime. Combined with the enterprise-class VMware virtualization platform, ClearCube provides organizations with VDI solutions that ensure end-user computing power. With Sentral's unique connection broker technology, organizations can automatically switch between virtualized and dedicated physical computing resources, guaranteeing that end users always have the computing power required to effectively conduct their jobs.
"ClearCube's PC blades and Sentral v5.5 management software complement VMware VDI to provide customers with a powerful desktop virtualization solution," said Brian Byun, vice president of global partners and solutions at VMware. "Together these products provide a way to better manage physical and virtual computing resources, reducing IT costs and ensuring 'always-on' access to reliable computing resources regardless of their location."
"We are evaluating our existing desktops and planning a conversion to a more efficient ClearCube and VMware-powered virtual desktop infrastructure over the next three years," said Dan Morreale, CEO of InfoShare/AtlantiCare Information Technology at AtlantiCare, a not-for-profit healthcare system located in New Jersey. "With its Sentral v5.5 management software and PC blades, ClearCube is providing us with a true desktop virtualization solution that will provide AtlantiCare employees with a more optimized experience on their desktops. Once implemented, we expect the solution will provide the same user experience as a traditional desktop, while reducing current and future IT costs."
The ClearCube PC blade virtualization solution enhances VMware VDI deployments by ensuring end-user computing power by managing resources in the data center. By using Sentral v5.5 to control and manage access to both virtualized computing resources and physical PC blades, ClearCube helps organizations move computing resources to where they are needed, reducing IT costs and ensuring end-user computing power. ClearCube deploys VDI licenses on a per-user basis (not a per-blade basis), allowing customers to support the appropriate number of users on a blade and deliver the required user experience.
