The global leader in virtualisation and cloud infrastructure, VMware Inc, announced today that it has entered a definitive agreement to acquire Wanova Inc, a leading provider of intelligent desktop solutions that centralise and simplify the management of physical desktop images while enabling users to take advantage of the native performance of a PC.
Jeff Jennings, Vice President, Enterprise Desktop, VMware, said, "The acquisition of Wanova will bring together industry leading solutions for centralized image management of both physical and virtual desktops."
"This combination has the potential to redefine the desktop virtualisation landscape. By blurring the boundaries of virtual vs. physical desktops, the benefits of central image management and persistent user installed applications can be extended to all systems within a business - physical, virtual, tethered desktops, or roaming Mac and PC laptops," he added.
The combination of VMware View and Wanova Mirage will enable IT organisations to offer a better user experience for employees and increase operational savings across all device types.
Sebastiano Tevarotto, Chairman and CEO, Wanova, said, "Business requirements are constantly evolving and in turn, IT teams also need to evolve from managing devices towards managing user workspaces and experience across multiple devices. The combination of VMware and Wanova addresses this evolution in a unique and innovative way."
"We're excited to join VMware in enabling a more intelligent desktop infrastructure by providing centralised image management, but enabling those images to run where it makes sense for the user: in a VDI session, on a client hypervisor, or natively on a PC," he added.
