Unidesk Files Patent On Composite Virtualization Desktop Management Technology
Wednesday, April 01, 2009
Marlborough, MA -- Unidesk, the leading innovator of virtual desktop management software, today announced the filing of a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on its breakthrough technology for simplifying the management of hosted virtual desktops and virtualized notebooks and PCs in corporate computing environments. Unidesk Composite Virtualization™ technology, the centerpiece of the company’s first patent for a "Managed Desktop System," will dramatically reduce the operational costs of desktop management and support for enterprise IT organizations, while providing unprecedented customization, personalization, and mobility benefits for desktop users.
"This is a landmark day for Unidesk, as we officially protect our unique and groundbreaking approach to the management of virtualized desktops," said Chris Midgley, Unidesk Founder and Chief Technology Officer. "Composite Virtualization will help solve a decades-old problem that started the day the first PC was introduced – how to give users a highly productive, personal desktop experience without increasing IT cost and complexity. It’s the first of several key technical inventions in our ‘Killer App’ for desktop virtualization that will lead enterprises to accelerate their virtual desktop deployments."
Unidesk’s patent application consists of 42 distinct claims that describe the company’s unique ability to disaggregate desktops into separately manageable containers. With Unidesk Composite Virtualization technology, IT can provision, patch, package, version, and rollback operating system images such as Microsoft Windows; IT-delivered applications; and, user-installed applications and data independent of each other. By dynamically synthesizing these containers into completely personal desktops whenever users demand, Unidesk’s patent-pending technology will greatly simplify the management of hosted virtual desktop solutions such as Citrix XenDesktop and VMware View, as well as PCs and notebooks virtualized with Type 1 and Type 2 client hypervisors, while satisfying even the most demanding desktop use cases.
Additional information on how Unidesk will reduce the cost of desktop operations, maximize worker productivity, improve edge security, increase data availability, and facilitate compliance will be available when the company launches its first product based on Composite Virtualization later this year.
Unidesk is the leading innovator of virtual desktop management software. Customers of all sizes will rely on Unidesk to reduce the operational and capital costs of deploying and managing enterprise desktops and applications, while enhancing user productivity. Unlike any other PC management or desktop virtualization solution, Unidesk makes hosted virtual desktops, notebooks, and PC workstations completely personal for every business user but uniformly manageable by IT, and leverages existing investments in server and client virtualization for fast deployment and payback. Unidesk is a privately-held company with worldwide headquarters in Marlborough, MA USA. For more information, visit the virtual desktop management blog or www.unidesk.com.
