New VDI Architecture Accelerates Deployment and ROI of Virtualization Solutions

 SALEM, NH, December 7, 2010 – Mosaic Technology, a leading expert in virtualization and data storage technology, today announced a suite of Virtualization Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions designed specifically for small and medium businesses. The new solutions are based on the VDI Reference Architecture developed by Mosaic Technology, which allows IT departments to rapidly deploy virtual desktops and applications on a proven architecture at affordable price points.

 “A growing number of enterprises have taken advantage of the tremendous efficiencies and cost savings that can be realized through virtualization technology,” said Arthur Demirjian, vice president of sales and marketing, Mosaic Technology. “We see the VDI architecture as the next important step in the IT evolution. It will enable small and medium businesses to deploy the groundbreaking virtualization technology available from the world’s leading vendors in a proven framework without getting bogged down in high costs or long rollouts.”

 The VDI Architecture leverages technology from Mosaic’s partners—including Dell, Intel, LiquidwareLabs, Microsoft, VMWare, and Akorri — and combines them in strategic, proven solutions that improve the efficiency and availability of IT resources. Mosaic’s broad portfolio of consulting and professional services extends the value of VDI by implementing industry-leading technology into a proven architecture designed specifically for the Small and Medium Business (SMB) market. The VDI Architecture was developed by Mosaic as a means to simplify IT environments, leverage existing technology investments, and reduce overall costs.

 The new VDI solutions from Mosaic Technology will address a variety of implementation scenarios as defined in the VDI architecture. These solution scenarios include:

  • Persistent and Non-Persistent (Stateless) VDI implementations
  • Hybrid implementations
  • Blade Workstation implementations
  • Locally Hosted implementations
  • Application Virtualization

 To date, companies that have implemented VDI solutions from Mosaic have reduced their data management costs by 50% and realized ROI within 6 months.

 “Today’s small and medium businesses are under pressure to find more cost-effective ways to adapt to the changing business environment and improve their competitive standing,” said Michael Moretti, Dell. “Mosaic’s VDI Reference Architecture will enable SMB customers to move to a virtualized architecture more quickly and cost efficiently, and to do so with a proven, unified approach using industry-leading products.”
