Nimdesk have thrown their hat into the ring of turnkey virtual desktop delivery solutions. Following the trodden route of taking the complexity out of centrally hosted services, Nimdesk have architectured a scale-out converged solution for desktop virtualization and desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) deployments. With a combination of solutions that includes both a software appliance (vdi.diy), or one of two “converged devices” (Nimdesk true.vdi/true.vdi.stor) Nimdesk aim to help the SME/SMB space: either by appealing directly for on premise services, or by enabling service providers and re-sellers a preconfigured service device to scale services quickly and easily.
Nimdesk claim they have the simplest and most affordable desktop virtualization for business of any size today. At a headline $99 cost per user for a perpetual license, what do you get and how is it different from existing solutions in this space?
