The Virtuon Partner Program, also known as VPP, has been launched by Virtuon (News - Alert) for its vPresence virtual desktop service. The cloud-based virtual desktop service can be now offered by channel partners as a turnkey solution to their customers through VPP. Virtuon will be formally presenting VPP at the 2011 Channel Partner (News - Alert) Expo in Las Vegas.

The virtual desktop service, vPresence, is based on cloud computing and virtualization technology. Computing devices with access to the Internet will be provided full functionality of the Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows 7 operating system by the service. The service supports traditional personal computers and laptops. The array of Apple and Android based tablets and phones are also supported by the service.

In a release, Forrest Blair (News - Alert), CEO of Virtuon said, "Organizations are rolling out tablet devices as a productivity tool and their users need the full functionality of a desktop operating system they have been accustomed to. vPresence delivers the convenience, flexibility, and scale that cloud computing offers and is complimentary as partners move to selling cloud-based services."

Virtuon is located in Scottsdale, Arizona. A computer systems service provider, Virtuon specializes in virtualization, business continuity, and cloud computing. Hardware and software products are included in the company’s infrastructure solutions. A team of expert certified engineers support the datacenter services provided by the company.

In a related story, Virtuon announced the launch of vPresence Virtual Desktop as a learning tool for patients with autism. Autism Spectrum (News - Alert) Disorder affects one in every 110 U.S. children under the age of eight.

Virtuon's vPresence virtual desktop gives the freedom to work securely on social and computer skills of patients without being locked in a computer lab. Remote access to specialized autism treatment tools allows therapists and patients to continue developing real-world life skills outside of traditional clinical environments.
