ClearCube goes ahead to manage VDI for clients

Companies looking to implement a virtual desktop strategy could find their task easier following ClearCube’s decision in September to make its Sentral management software more widely available. The suite, which provides monitoring as well as connection brokering, can now be used with third-party hardware such as Dell, IBM or HP servers.

Sentral was developed by ClearCube to manage the firm’s own blades, which put PC hardware into rack-mounted enclosures in a datacentre and provide user access through a desktop console. Early kit simply provided each user with a dedicated blade, but in 2003 the firm added the ability for several users to share a blade, cutting the cost per seat for customers, and then introduced tools to manage it all. ClearCube now, however, sees a wider opportunity to sell the tools to firms using third-party hardware.

Desktop virtualization is where all the creative work and fun is, Server virtualization is soon going to be , more or less, standardized leaving room for customized desktop virtualization solutions. Firms that gain that experience will go faster with the flow, laggards will have to face extinction, because suddenly this space has got hotter!
