Virtualisation incumbent VMware announced it has acquired CloudVolumes, a provider of virtual desktop application services, for an undisclosed sum. VMware said the move will enable customers to more easily manage applications within virtualised and physical desktop environments.
CloudVolumes offers a number of virtualised application and thin client management solutions. CloudVolumes for VMware Horizon, which is delivered as a virtual appliance, lets users manage both VDI and published application virtual desktop environments, and its solution for vCloud Automation Centre lets users instantly provision applications and personalised desktop environments from a single image to multiple users.
But one of the key benefits of the technology is it lets users to manage application delivery across virtualised environments alongside physical desktop environments through the same platform.
“Customers are looking to modernize their existing Windows application delivery architecture to be more like mobile IT,” said Sumit Dhawan, senior vice president and general manager, desktop products, end-user computing at VMware.
“The combination of CloudVolumes and VMware Horizon will allow customers to build a real-time application delivery system that enables all applications to be centrally managed, always available and up-to-date, and delivered to virtualised environments for desktop, server or cloud on-demand,” Dhawan said.
Raj Parekh, chief executive officer at CloudVolumes said the acquisition will change the fame for desktop virtualisation and is a key enabler of VMware’s cloud strategy as it will allow the company to build new application delivery capabilities across its end-user computing, software-defined datacentre and hybrid cloud services.
