Today, NComputing announces the expansion of their desktop virtualization product offerings with the acquisition of VERDE Workspaces, formerly known as Virtual Bridges. The acquisition allows NComputing to offer a full stack, end-to-end solution including thin clients, software clients, and desktop management and provisioning infrastructure to provide a turnkey solution for businesses and organizations of all sizes.

NComputing’s impressive time-to-value and high performance desktop virtualization solution is now coupled with VERDE VDI, the lowest-cost VDI solution, leveraging the open source Linux KVM hypervisor, and its densities and storage optimizations, while offering users the ability to treat Windows and Linux as equal citizens.

The VERDE provisioning model was built to accommodate the seamless coexistence of Windows and Linux desktop sessions, with market focus in higher EDU, defense and both centralized as well as de-centralized enterprises.

VERDE VDI is ideal for Managed Desktop Service Providers who are looking for a way to reduce the cost of supporting multiple geographically dispersed customers while providing access to the latest applications, operating systems and security. VERDE’s unique Cloud Branch and multi-tenant management features allow not only MDSP operators to dramatically improve desktop management efficiency, but also deliver highly differentiated value to large, geographically diverse enterprises with replicated branches or many regional data centers.

This acquisition means value-added partners (VARs) can now offer an end-to-end solution. For schools and SMBs, based on vSpace desktop virtualization – a single OS and one set of apps to be shared with multiple users – and they can now also expand addressable opportunities by offering the VERDE VDI solution – a scalable, multi-tenant, dynamically-provisioned VDI solution meeting the needs of higher EDU, government, defense and large enterprise segments.

Jim Curtin, VP and GM of Global Software at NComputing, previously CEO and co-founder of VERDE Workspaces, explains “NComputing and VERDE are a powerful combination. We see tremendous value for customers and partners, along with significant potential for explosive growth with our VDI solution. By combining with NComputing’s end-to-end desktop virtualization capabilities we can now offer a full-spectrum solution delivering tremendous savings and flexibility with respect to end user computing.”

Young Song, CEO and co-founder of NComputing explains, “Unlike other desktop virtualization solutions offering one mold fits all, NComputing delivers purpose-built solutions that are simple to use, easy to deploy, affordable to acquire with low maintenance effort, and deliver a powerful PC like experience without the expensive budget. The market for VDI, sometimes referred to as Virtual Client Computing (VCC), is expected to grow from $3 billion in 2015 to $4.6 billion in 2020 with an 8.9% annual growth according to IDC. VDI has changed dramatically since becoming a mainstream initiative in the early part of the decade. As we enter a second phase of VDI expansion, companies are looking for more value, choice and ease-of-use in their end user computing infrastructure.”

Following the rebranding of VERDE Workspaces to VERDE VDI, NComputing plans to enhance the existing solution with support of its popular thin client families as well as its UXP protocol delivering true HD multimedia content without expensive GPUs. For certain applications, however, GPU-assist is necessary, and is being added to the roadmap as well.

This acquisition also follows a $4.8 million VC funding round led by MDI (Metra Digital Innovation) Ventures, the Jakarta-based VC arm of Telkom Indonesia together with Seoul-based VC firm Bokwang Investment Corporation. NComputing plans to use the funding to further accelerate its market presence in key regional markets and verticals.
