Kaviza, the folks that won the “Best of Synergy 2010” award in the Business Efficiency cateogy, have just released “VDI-in-a-box 3.0” featuring Citrix HDX technology and full support for XenServer. It’s a simple plug-and-play desktop virtualization solution designed specifically for SMEs and departmental budgets. Since it doesn’t require shared storage or multiple management servers, Kaviza says VDI-in-a-box 3.0 can deliver virtual desktops at a total cost of under $500 per user (minimum 25 users). And since Kaviza is licensed to use Citrix HDX technology, VDI-in-a-box delivers an uncompromised “high definition” user experience. Kudos to Kaviza!
