ThinTech and Userful to offer entry-level VDI in the United States and Mexico
ICT wholesaler prefers Userful over NComputing for simple and affordable desktop virtualization
August 25, 2014 - Calgary, AB -- Userful Corporation, a leading desktop virtualization company, and Thin Technologies (ThinTech), an ICT wholesaler from Monterrey, Mexico, have entered into an agreement to provide entry-level desktop virtualization solutions throughout the United States and Mexico in markets including call centers and SMB with a focus on education.
ThinTech, also an NComputing reseller, has begun the switch to Userful due rising to demands for more cost effective and flexible desktop solutions. The all-in-one Userful VDI software appliance leverages zero client devices to replace physical PCs at a lower cost than traditional solutions. The unique architecture provides simplicity and performance, seamlessly delivering HD multimedia across a range of displays and operating environments. From a single Core i7 PC, it offers a simultaneous choice of operating systems including full Microsoft™ Windows desktops and a range of free, integrated desktops such as Chrome-based cloud-client, Linux, signage players and desktops delivered through Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
"With several years of experience selling virtualization solutions with thin and zero clients, I have seen that with Userful, you get more at less cost compared to NComputing with VSpace™ Server." said Sergio Du Solier, ThinTech CEO. "Userful is compatible with Microsoft™ Windows, Linux, cloud desktops, and remote desktop protocols so users can easily choose which operating system to use at different types of displays."
Unlike NComputing with its proprietary hardware, Userful VDI appliance software is compatible with a range of hardware options from global manufacturers like ViewSonic, HP, Acer, Atrust and Centerm. The broad compatibility makes it possible for ThinTech to create solutions for a variety of customers. Du Solier said that the Userful solution created more opportunities for ThinTech and provides customers with an overall better computing experience.
"With Userful, we can easily create a bundled solution for call centers and other market niches. With NComputing, we are very limited," Du Solier added. "Userful allows us to go to any customer with more options for zero client devices, and higher quality HD video multimedia."
The browser-managed solution also creates virtualization opportunities beyond desktops, powering interactive touch displays, digital signage and video walls.
"The growing need for exceptional VDI performance without a hefty price tag is a challenge we and ThinTech are ready for," said Tim Griffin, CEO at Userful. "Our solution is the ideal complement to ThinTech's portfolio and will deliver performance and flexibility customers demand for a variety of displays."
Userful Corporation is a leading desktop virtualization software company that makes it simple and affordable for organizations to implement and centrally manage virtual computers. Userful supports virtualization deployments from desktops to touch-screens and beyond, with exceptional performance, unique flexibility and at the lowest cost on the market. Userful is the trusted provider of over 1 million virtual computers in over 100 countries and works with zero- and thin-client devices from world-class partners such as ViewSonic and HP. userful.com.
