GreenBytes (News - Alert), a company specializing in desktop virtualization solutions, recently had its solution, IO Offload Engine, achieve VMware Ready status.
Achieving VMware Ready status indicates that after a detailed validation process, the IO Offload Engine has achieved VMware's highest level of endorsement, and can be found on the VMware Solution Exchange (VSX).
The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud infrastructures. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions.
"Combining GreenBytes' patented zero latency data reduction technology with VMware View 5.1 provides customers with simple, cost-effective ways to provision and operate high-performance desktop virtualization," Steve O'Donnell, chairman and chief executive officer, GreenBytes said in a statement.
GreenBytes and VMware will now offer customers a choice between full image and cloned virtual desktops that can be rolled out in minutes. The IO Offload Engine is uniquely simple, scales from SME to cloud, and is completely vendor-agnostic.
"We are pleased that GreenBytes' IO Offload Engine qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware integration and interoperability standards and it works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure, which will speed time to value within customer environments," said Sheryl Sage, director, Alliance Programs, VMware.
Achieving VMware Ready status for the GreenBytes IO Offload Engine is an important accomplishment as the company continues to focus on improving the desktop virtualization user experience.
GreenBytes is also planning to exhibit its solutions at the VMware Partner Exchange event to be held from February 25-27, 2013, in Las Vegas.
