"The complexity and sophistication of desktop
virtualization has traditionally precluded the deployment of VDI in the SMB
market," said Nathan Coutinho, virtualization solutions manager at CDW, in
a statement. "Our small business customers looking for the management,
security and cost savings of desktop virtualization will benefit from the new
option this collaborative partnership provides in the form of a VDI solution
that greatly reduces the typical implementation and management concerns."
