The Nutanix report delivers immediate insight into the Nutanix next-gen converged compute and storage platform that delivers the best value for a particular customer workload. For the Unidesk report, SysTrack thoroughly analyzes and identifies distinct software use cases and articulates how Unidesk's unique layering approach can simplify VDI image management and application delivery. For the WWT report, SysTrack provides a summary of the metrics gathered and describes the infrastructure sizing implications when you choose to enable your workforce with VDI.
SysTrack MarketPlace, announced in June 2012, provides detailed analysis for sizing and selecting hardware, software and service infrastructure. MarketPlace provides a single source for IT professionals to get the quantified data they need to maximize the performance of their infrastructure, accelerate ROI and maximize end-user experience.

Carrie Reynolds, director Sales, Lakeside Software: "SysTrack MarketPlace is about providing actionable information and recommendations about customers' specific implementation. With the addition of informative reports for Nutanix, Unidesk and WWT, SysTrack Marketplace provides IT professionals with even more information to help them efficiently and effectively manage their environment."
Howard Ting, vice president Marketing, Nutanix: "Virtualization in the datacenter has suffered from overbearing complexity due to traditional network-based storage such as SAN/NAS that limit scalability and performance while driving up cost. Nutanix has delivered a next-generation converged storage and compute platform to allow for optimal scalability and simplicity while dramatically lowering both capex and opex. The SysTrack MarketPlace report delivers powerful data analysis, which ensures the Nutanix infrastructure is right-sized for every organization's virtualization initiatives and helps our mutual customers achieve optimal IT efficiency and ROI."
Tom Rose, chief marketing officer, Unidesk: "The management of applications and Windows® images is a big problem in VDI projects with user and desktop diversity. With the MarketPlace for Unidesk report, IT managers can identify applications that are ill-suited for application virtualization and are better delivered by Unidesk desktop layering software. SysTrack highlights Unidesk's cost-saving benefits of using one clean gold image for all desktops, packaging heavily and lightly used apps as interoperable layers, and providing storage-efficient persistent desktops that enable users to install and manage one-off apps on their own."
Jason Diestelkamp, data center solutions architect, WWT: "SysTrack MarketPlace has increased our efficiency and value in delivering VDI assessments and ongoing VDI monitoring and management. This capability allows us to generate a custom report for our customers that contains the essential data to ensure our solution will meet the unique needs of each customer."
