CUPERTINO, Calif., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Workspot announced today that the company is working with Nutanix and channel partners to help customers implement next-generation virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solutions faster and more affordably than ever before.
Running on Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), Workspot VDI 2.0 offers a way to modernize IT organizations with a cloud-native, multi-tenant solution that can be deployed in a single day, versus the months it takes to deploy traditional VDI solutions.
Workspot and Nutanix, working closely with a select group of channel partners, have demonstrated the success of their solution with many organizations, including:
- CNEX Labs: This high-tech startup needed remote desktop access for its employees, but a labor-intensive remote desktop solution caused security problems and put the firm at risk for breaching licensing rules. Switching to Nutanix HCI and using Workspot as a delivery mechanism for apps and data secured Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) access, reduced complexity for IT and end users, and eliminated licensing issues.
- Cunninghams: BYOD had become a productivity imperative for this Australian property management firm, but secure access was an issue, as was an aging data center. Nutanix consolidated the datacenter down to 4U, while Workspot deployed individual desktops—with apps installed—to remote users. This made new device set-up fast and easy, accelerated time-to-productivity for new employees and reallocated IT time to strategic, high-value projects.
- SRP Medical: A healthcare provider with three mental health facilities, SRP/WellBridge needed to address the complexity and high cost of its existing virtual desktop solution. The unique simplicity of the Workspot solution and the ease of deploying Nutanix HCI appliances enabled SRP to meet a tight implementation deadline. SRP Medical was able to reduce both capital and operational expenditures and repurpose existing PCs and thin clients for virtual desktop delivery.

Robert Ek, CEO, Go Systems, said: "Go Systems and Workspot are in a unique position to make customers successful with next-generation VDI 2.0 solutions, and we're very pleased to be forming a close partnership to make our customers successful. The combination of Workspot running on Nutanix HCI is a simple yet powerful solution; we're able to implement VDI 2.0 on HCI in a private cloud faster than we thought possible, and our customers are realizing the benefits of improved productivity and reduced costs."
Bree Higgins, director, Cunninghams Real Estate, said: "As a fast-growing property sales and management firm, it's imperative that our sales people, property managers, office administrators, executives and designers can work from anywhere using their own devices. Go Systems not only solved our performance issues, they also enabled our 'work from anywhere approach' while solving the challenges we were having with our aging datacenter. They provided secure access to our corporate apps and data with Workspot running on Nutanix HCI servers running as a private cloud. Productivity has soared across the organization because it's so easy to use."
Kevin B. Gray, CEO, GlobeNet, said: "Our partnership with Workspot is transforming the way businesses run with its cloud-based virtual desktop infrastructure, driving workplace efficiency at a fraction of traditional costs. With Workspot and Nutanix solutions, we've been able to help SRP Medical reduce their expenditures and thrive."
Trisha Grimsley, CFO, SRP Medical, said: "The challenge we brought to GlobeNet and Workspot was to build out our new datacenter and a full VDI environment in 45 days. The success we had deploying Workspot on Nutanix within this extremely tight timeframe is testament to the simplicity and power of the solution. We could not have achieved this with any other vendor. As a result, we've reduced capital expenditures and operating expenditures, and we're also able to avoid a PC refresh by repurposing existing PCs and thin clients."
Amitabh Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Workspot, said: "Organizations are struggling with the cost and complexity of first-generation VDI, and they need an alternative. When Workspot VDI 2.0 solutions - including Cloud Apps, Cloud Desktops and Cloud Workstations - are deployed on Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure, customers enjoy the benefits of streamlined IT operations and significantly reduced VDI total cost of ownership. End users who've likely experienced the slow connection times associated with legacy solutions are delighted with Workspot's blazing fast response times. In conjunction with a select group of channel partners, we will continue our mission to liberate organizations from legacy VDI with a turnkey VDI 2.0 cloud service that meets evolving customer needs."
