Sep 06, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
GreenBytes, a developer of full-featured desktop virtualization storage optimization software, announced it was named a Best of VMworld 2013 finalist award winner in the Desktop Virtualization and End-User Computing category.
According to a release, the GreenBytes IO Offload Engine was honored for its approach to overcoming storage-related desktop virtualization hurdles, enabling orders-of-magnitude increases in performance and data storage savings.
GreenBytes noted that an independent team of experts and editors from TechTarget's SearchServerVirtualization.com selected GreenBytes' IO Offload Engine from more than 200 nominees in nine categories. The annual Best of VMworld awards showcases the top technologies of the year, which are judged according to innovation, value, performance, reliability, and ease of use.
"CIOs that want to implement desktop virtualization to support BYOD, enhance security by keeping critical data within the confines of the data center or to support legacy Windows XP applications have been constrained by huge and, until now, insurmountable storage-related cost and performance barriers. GreenBytes completely eradicates these obstacles and paves the way for extremely affordable, high-performing, large-scale virtual desktop deployments," said Steve O'Donnell, CEO, GreenBytes. "We're honored that such an influential media organization as TechTarget recognizes the critical role GreenBytes plays in enabling desktop virtualization to deliver on its promises."
GreenBytes said the IO Offload Engine is a feature-rich desktop virtualization storage optimization solution that enables users to overcome Input Output Per Second (IOPS) barriers to deploy high-performing persistent virtual desktops at cloud-scale -- without adding expensive, additional RAM to every server. It diverts heavy traffic from the customer's existing storage area network (SAN) to the GreenBytes solution, using GreenBytes' patented zero latency inline deduplication technology to cut desktop virtualization storage needs by up to 98 percent, delivering significantly higher IOPS and lower latency. Customers no longer need to purchase additional SANs, disks or flash, and instead have extra capacity on their existing SAN. For the first time, virtual desktops run at optimal levels, providing better-than-local-desktop performance and productivity. Businesses consistently reduce overall virtual desktop ROI by 50 percent, from 18 months to just nine months.
