As in other regions, virtualization is a very pressing IT need in Canada, and we expect to see rapid adoption of the solution,” said Lalonde. “We recognized the need to have an office dedicated to the Canadian market, and selected Toronto for its central location, the sophistication of its IT community and the availability of talented, highly-trained personnel.”
Lalonde will be responsible for sales, partner and business development for Canada, as well as the Northeast and Central regions of the U.S. Previously, Lalonde has held executive sales positions at Hummingbird Communications, Delano Technology and Fusepoint Managed Services. In addition to sales and support, the new office will include quality assurance and research and development operations headed by Anthony Di Loreto, manager of quality assurance, and George Halpert, director of software development.
Pano Logic leverages standard virtualization technologies to create a new approach to client/desktop computing that dramatically lowers total cost of ownership while increasing security, management and mobility. The Pano desktop computer has no CPU, no memory, no operating system and no drivers. By moving all software off the desktop and consolidating everything onto easier to manage, shared servers, Pano reduces desktop TCO by 70 percent or more — saving $3150 per desktop over three years — and eliminates the desktop as a security risk.
