Leostream and Virtuozzo Partner to Ease Virtual Desktop Deployments on Alternative Cloud Infrastructure
Collaboration to give Service Providers and Enterprises a simple and affordable option for hosting and managing desktop environments with hyperconverged infrastructure and open-source clouds.
Leostream, a leading provider of secure remote access software for enterprises, today announced a partnership with Virtuozzo, the alternative cloud platform leader. The collaboration positions Leostream as a member of the Virtuozzo Technology Alliance Partner Ecosystem and enables robust virtual desktop environments running on Virtuozzo’s software-defined, hyperconverged self-service platform.
Aimed to help enterprises build highly customizable and resilient hosted desktop deployments, the Leostream Platform™ can manage and connect users to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), cloud desktops, and other types of IT assets across a range of hosting platforms. To facilitate remote work amongst telecommuters and hybrid employees, more and more companies are looking to leverage alternative infrastructure like hyperconverged infrastructure and open-source clouds to host desktops and applications.
The integration between Leostream and Virtuozzo allows services providers and enterprises to build and tightly control desktop environments across a broad portfolio of virtualization, software-defined storage, and hyperconvergence solutions.
“With over 20 years of experience in the desktop virtualization space, we’ve seen just about every back-end configuration possible and the combination of Leostream and Virtuozzo is truly unique,” comments Karen Gondoly, CEO of Leostream. “There is a real value-add here for enterprise customers and managed service providers (MSPs) who want to take advantage of hosting desktops or offering desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) using the latest back-end infrastructure.”
In what’s often considered an expensive and daunting task of centralizing desktops in the datacenter or in the cloud, Virtuozzo simplifies this process with its cost-effective, easy-to-use fully managed cloud solution built on mature, open-source technology. Additionally, Virtuozzo’s platform equips MSPs with clear service level agreements and 24/7 production support.
“Partnering with Leostream is an important step in our effort to empower service providers. Businesses of all sizes, with varying degrees of in-house IT expertise, require remote access. The comprehensive remote desktop management suite provided by Leostream built atop the Virtuozzo Cloud Platform provides simple, affordable solutions for service providers who can then, in turn, offer robust yet easy-to-use solutions to those end customers—regardless of their levels of technical ability,” comments James Withall, Vice President, Technology Alliances & IT, Virtuozzo. “Together, we provide a crucial infrastructure that delivers alternative cloud advantages while enabling service providers to better achieve profitability.”
In combination with Leostream, IT teams receive everything that is needed to manage remote desktop connections including a feature-rich toolset for provisioning desktops, setting access control policies, securing logins, monitoring sessions, and optimizing resource allocation.
There are countless ways for enterprises and MSPs to take advantage of this partnership, including:
- Hosting graphics-rich virtual desktops
- Shared workstations or remote sessions
- Persistent and non-persistent virtual machines
