Ericom Announces Virtual Desktop Solution for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Datacenter Edition


Ericom Accelerates Virtual Desktop Deployments within the Enterprise

CLOSTER, NJ. (July 31, 2007) - Ericom® Software, a leading provider of Enterprise-Wide Application Access solutions, announces the availability of its virtual desktop solution for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2, Datacenter Edition - PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView. By implementing Ericom's solution in conjunction with Windows Server 2003 R2, Datacenter Edition and Terminal Services - organizations have license rights to virtualize an unlimited number of Windows Server 2003 virtual machine instances and deliver them to a wide array of client devices using the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). This scenario enables the creation of "personal terminal servers," in which each user has a dedicated virtualized operating environment enabling greater flexibility and control.

PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView provides enterprise-wide access to virtual Windows desktops and addresses imminent business challenges, including:

  • Secure local and remote desktop access
  • Desktop management and backup
  • Business continuity
  • Disaster recovery
  • Privacy of information

With PowerTerm WebConnect DeskView's centralized management and delivery capabilities, enterprise-wide deployments of virtual desktops are expedited—providing significant flexibility to organizations with local users, remote users, branch offices, and mobile workers. Moreover, customized virtual desktops are based on user requirements, ensuring full desktop functionality.

"Microsoft is excited to enable improved application compatibility and user isolation for Terminal Services customers that require a dedicated OS per user. With software from Ericom, Terminal Services customers have more choice and agility for deploying centralized applications or desktops," said Joshua Schnoll, Sr. Product Manager, Terminal Services.

Ericom Founder and CEO, Eran Heyman commented, "Desktop virtualization is ideal for enterprises seeking to reduce the cost and complexity of traditional desktop management. Microsoft's unlimited virtualization licensing strategy for Windows Server 2003 R2, Datacenter Edition will further accelerate the adoption of virtual desktops.
