In addition vcopious announced that SIEMENS Corporation has signed a multi-year agreement to purchase the vcopious VC2 Professional virtual business environments appliance with long-term support.

"Enterprises are looking for ways to have complete control of their budget, their environments, and their data. vcopious has hit the mark," says Bruce Luehrs, Managing Partner for Emerald Stage 2.
"Our customers want a virtual environment solution that provides them greatest choice and control. They have to manage their brand, data, and user experience. They are overspending on recurring events and reluctant to use these tools for employee collaboration, training, customer support, or channel engagement because of the expense. We want to make it easy to add an environment that will drive productivity or growth," says Ken Hayward, CEO of vcopious. "We appreciate the strong vote of confidence from our partners in the financial and technology industries, and from the SIEMENS Corporation."
The VC2 virtual business environment application server is available in a Professional Version with 8 simultaneous instances for 5,000 concurrent users, or an Enterprise Solution with 20 simultaneous instances for 30,000 concurrent users.
