PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2014) - GreenBytes®, Inc., a developer of full-featured desktop virtualization storage optimization software, today announced that it has become a certified technology partner in Dell's Technology Partner Program. As part of the program, GreenBytes has certified its award-winning IO Offload Engine, a software-defined storage appliance, to run on Dell PowerEdge servers. GreenBytes has also certified its award-winning vIO virtual storage appliance (VSA) with the Dell PowerEdge VRTX to give customers access to an all-in-one VDI solution that scales easily and cost effectively from tens to hundreds of users in a single appliance.
Aimed at enterprise customers and service providers, GreenBytes' IO Offload Engine has been certified with Dell PowerEdge servers to compliment a new or existing virtual desktop solution set by delivering a high-performance storage component for high capacity and low cost persistent desktops. The IO Offload Engine enables full-featured persistent virtual desktops at the cost of less functional, non-persistent desktops without changing the existing compute infrastructure because the appliance appears simply as a storage target. The IO Offload Engine on Dell can scale from a single department to cloud with the same approach and architecture, with less risk and complexity.
By certifying GreenBytes' groundbreaking vIO virtual storage appliance with the Dell PowerEdge VRTX, customers can deliver the full-featured persistent virtual desktops that users want, with the manageability, scalability and affordability that make it possible. Utilizing GreenBytes' unique technology, the certified solution is able to deliver strong performance and ROI for desktop virtualization initiatives. GreenBytes' vIO empowers IT administrators to increase the performance and improve the end user experience of the virtual desktop infrastructure by integrating GreenBytes' patented zero latency inline deduplication software and local SSD on the Dell PowerEdge VRTX running VMware ESXi.
"GreenBytes is pleased to join the Dell Technology Partner Program to deliver a compelling storage optimization offering for the growing virtual desktop market," said Dan Beauregard, Sr. Director of Strategic Alliances at GreenBytes. "By combining GreenBytes' award-winning desktop virtualization storage optimization software with Dell's industry-leading hardware offerings, we can deliver a virtual desktop solution that is cost effective and high performing to customers."
