Dubai, June 7, 2012
Virtual Bridges, a leading provider of desktop management and provisioning solutions, said it has inked a partnership deal with Gulf Business Machines (GBM) to deliver its Verde solutions to organizations in the GCC except Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
Founded in 1990, GBM, a spin-off from IBM, is the leading IT solutions provider in the region fulfilling the IT requirements of local, regional and international organizations.
Featuring online, offline and branch Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI), Verde is proven to help organizations reduce the cost and complexity of managing desktops, while minimizing security concerns and business risk, said a statement from the company.
This major partnership agreement establishes a long-term strategic relationship by which GBM will remarket, distribute, resell and support Virtual Bridges products, including Verde, the industry’s first VDI Gen2 solution.
“As the leading VDI Gen2 solution, Verde will help our customers reduce desktop total cost of ownership while increasing organizational agility, productivity and responsiveness,” remarked Cesare Cardone, the chief executive officer of GBM.
“We are excited to partner with Virtual Bridges to bring this value to organizations in our region,” he noted.
