“Integrating VMware View with enterprise-class storage optimization from Nexenta provides a robust solution for the business process outsourcing market by simplifying the management of IT infrastructure and protecting data across locations,” said Mason Uyeda, director, Technical and Solutions Marketing, VMware. “The flexibility of the virtual storage appliance and centralized management console, combined with the built-in compatibility with VMware View, delivers significant benefits for the enterprise and end users.”

VMware View Business Process Desktop delivers desktops as a managed service to business process outsourcing (BPO) contact center agents, offshore developers, and outsourced workers. The single NexentaVSA for View management console, which centralizes storage and desktop resources, is ideal for BPO services, allowing customers to deliver applications and information access to its outsourced employees securely and transparently. By utilizing the virtual storage appliance and attached storage devices, NexentaVSA for View also enables customers to scale quickly and effectively to accommodate storage demand and VDI performance. Finally, Business Process Desktop, combined with NexentaVSA for View, can reduce operational expenditure by centralizing and streamlining desktop management and support.

Simplifying the entire installation and configuration process, customers can now deploy these solutions with ease and with the highest levels of confidence. At present, forty percent of all vendors in the VMware Rapid Desktop Appliance program are based on NexentaVSA for View deployments. Partners include Pogo, Cisco, AMAX, and RackTop — with several more in the certification process.

“NexentaVSA for View is a virtual storage appliance designed specifically for VMware View Business Process Desktop,” said Evan Powell, CEO, Nexenta Systems. “By collaborating with VMware, we have optimized the storage components of VDI deployments with VMware View, tackling increased scaling, centralized management, and operational costs.”
