NIMBOXX Executes on VERDE – Unveils VERDE Hyper-Converged VDI Appliance
In February, VCloudNews reported NIMBOXX, an IT Infrastructure solution player that offers an appliance based Hyper-Convergence solution has acquired the VERDE enterprise virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) business from Virtual Bridges. NIMBOXX would use this acquisition to differentiate its position in the market by simplifying desktop delivery which as per the company is a leading deployment use case for hyper-converged infrastructure deployments. Well, its exciting times at NIMBOXX as the integration of the acquired technology has resulted in a new product offering which was announced this week.
The NIMBOXX VERDE VDI Appliance (VE-100) is a separate hardware appliance for VDI hosting, acting as the Compute Node in the VDI solution. The VE-100 hosts the VERDE KVM/QEMU system, and each is capable of hosting 100 VDI sessions. Additionally, one or more VE-100 appliances may be combined with the NIMBOXX AU-110 running the MeshOSTM operating system to provide shared storage and host additional server workloads. With this appliance, NIMBOXX hopes to serve customers with out of box simplicity and allowing companies to deploy and scale their virtualization infrastructure at a significantly lower cost of ownership, starting with as few as 100 VDI sessions.
“Historically, VDI has been synonymous with expensive frameworks cobbled together from multiple vendors, with disparate storage and complex deployments across hardware and software providers,” said Andy Salo, vice president of product management at NIMBOXX. “The combined HCI+VDI solution from NIMBOXX is by far the easiest to use and most cost effective in the industry, with total pricing per user including all hardware, software, and hypervisors priced less than that of competitive offerings on the market.
Per NIMBOXX’s press release, the appliance will start at less than $360/user and the combined HCI and VDI solution is less than half the cost of Nutanix, VMware, Citrix. Although, VCloudNews has not verified this claim, we would like to congratulate the NIMBOXX team on this release!
