About Kaviza VDI-in-a-Box

Kaviza’s VDI-in-a-box TM is a turnkey solution that delivers virtual desktops out of the box. Kaviza is affordable, quick to install, easy to administer, highly scalable, hypervisor agnostic and delivers quick ROI. The total cost to deploy a virtual desktop using Kaviza (including our software, thin clients, server hardware, storage and OS, hypervisor licenses) is less than the cost of a PC.

Kaviza’s solution automates provisioning, patching and management of virtual desktops, provides automatic recovery on failure with built-in high-availability, and automatically load balances virtual desktop workloads as you add or remove servers and/or users.
