Userful Multiplatform desktop virtualization solution receives rave review from technology professional

Dr. Bill Bailey says Userful virtualization software "borders on magical"

August 28, 2014 - Calgary, AB -- Userful Corporation, a leading desktop virtualization company, is receiving rave reviews in the United States from Dr. Bill Bailey, tech blogger for VirtZine, a virtualization and cloud computing magazine. Bailey, an experienced computer professional who touts a list of credentials, including Certified Citrix Administrator and VMware Certified Professional, is impressed by Userful's ease of use and low cost.

Bailey emphasizes the beneficial features of the Userful Multiplatform software that enables small businesses with smaller budgets to easily afford, set up and manage the computing solution.

"The difference with Userful is that it is designed for smaller businesses that don't have the infrastructure that would need to be built to support a typical VDI environment," said Bailey. "It is the simplest, most flexible and affordable virtual desktop solution I believe you will find because it is unique in the way it operates."

Bailey filmed a product review demonstrating the solution with an infrastructure similar to one that would be used in a small business environment. He demonstrates the ease of switching operating systems on a desktop from Userful's browser-managed app.

"The change from a Windows 7 to a Windows 8 machine simply borders on magical to see that. Using the one-screen interface to get in there and do things works perfectly, so you don't have to be a virtualization guru to understand how to use and do this."

The Userful Multiplatform desktop virtualization solution powers multiple desktops through one central PC, using zero client devices. This eliminates much of the hardware, software and electricity costs required by the traditional one PC per seat solution. Businesses, such as call centers and retail stores, can utilize the Userful Multiplatform solution to reduce infrastructure costs and power multiple displays including desktops, digital signs and touch screens.

Bailey was fascinated by the simplicity and affordability of the Userful Multiplatform desktop virtualization, especially for small businesses wanting to leverage more terminals with less hardware. It reduces costs and is fast and easy to manage. "I was fascinated at how easy it was for someone who doesn't have a virtualization background to get in there and use it," Bailey added.

Bailey sees Userful as a tremendous benefit for organizations like small businesses that lack a large infrastructure, but need to leverage terminals instead of PCs to significantly cut costs.
