Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Boot Storm Offers New Standard for Low Cost Per Seat
Iomega and VMware say they've delivered enterprise-class VDI to SMBs and distributed enterprises. Iomega, an EMC company in the data protection field, says it's brought to market a "first" in virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) for small and medium sized businesses and distributed offices when 100 thin clients with VMware View 4.6 were simultaneously booted in a matter of minutes -- an unheard VDI implementation utilizing a sub-$3,000 network storage device.
VirtualLogger Announces Screen Capture and Analytics Add-On for Legacy, Standalone, and VOIP Recording
VirtualLogger says call centers can now add synchronized screen capture to any recording. Screen capture is one of the fastest-growing segments of call recording and quality monitoring for call centers. Traditionally, call centers would need to purchase this feature from their existing call recording provider, often being forced into a "forklift upgrade" and the disrupting and expensive total replacement of their recording system. Now VirtualLogger says it offers highly cost-effective screen capture that can be easily added to most existing call recording and quality monitoring systems, as well as recordings from open-source VOIP systems.
