Quest Software and Microsoft Virtualization
Quest Software and Microsoft have a rich history where Quest has twice been named Microsoft’s ISV of the Year (2004 & 2007) for adding value on top of Microsoft platforms.
Microsoft virtualization, combined with the management simplification, user experience optimization, and connection brokering of Quest vWorkspace, offers flexible opportunities to deliver and better manage corporate desktops centrally while enhancing end-user experience, improving business continuity and providing location independence by hot-desking between desktop PCs. vWorkspace is an enterprise-grade solution that better integrates with Microsoft core services and technologies for desktop and application delivery to make you more efficient, more dynamic, and more responsive to your user community’s VDI needs.
Quest vWorkspace enhances virtual desktop management by integrating with Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, System Center Virtual Machine Manager, App-V, and Active Directory and providing capabilities - automated provisioning from golden images, user-profile management, power management, task automation and delegated administration of virtual desktop environment – all intended to provide highest level of management possible.
Quest vWorkspace offers an optimized end-user experience through enhancements to Microsoft’s native RDP by providing image/flash/browser/multimedia acceleration, bi-directional audio, universal USB device support, universal printing, multi-monitor support and latency reduction – creating a better virtual desktop experience over the LAN and WAN.
Quest vWorkspace has the unique ability to broker and manage connections for VDI, Presentation Virtualization with Terminal Services, and physical/blade PCs from a single product – single console. Utilizing vWorkspace as a key component to your desktop management needs can help to simplify complexity and reduce operating cost because administrators no longer need multiple products, consoles, initial license costs, maintenance streams, and training efforts.
