Security and virtualisation firm Nebulas Solutions has unveiled a new package designed to get firms up and running with a virtual desktop infrastructure in a matter of days.
VDI in a Box combines Pano Logic's zero client for the desktop, VMware technology for the virtual and connection broker layers, and NetApp for storage. It also features AppSense's user environment management solution to handle the physical-to-virtual desktop migration, and ongoing management of the user's policy and personalisation information, according to Nebulas.
The company said that VDI in a Box enables one engineer to provision a complete virtual infrastructure in four days, rather than the two weeks it would take to provision 10 physical workstations.
Nebulas managing director Nick Garlick said that many organisations find it costly and time consuming to virtualise their desktop environment.
"In addition to taking several months, it is almost impossible for them to fully evaluate their proposed solution before the virtualisation process starts, due to the different technologies, components and vendors involved," he explained.
"With VDI in a Box, we have shortcut the whole process. By combining our virtualisation expertise with proven components and technologies, customers now have an optimised, integrated solution that works, straight out of a box."
