Today VCE has announced the Vblock FastPath Desktop Virtualization Platform. This product is a single SKU VDI solution that provides a customer wizard interface to accelerate the implementation of VMware View installations for our customers.
The benefits of the platform include reduced acquisition and deployment times as well as simplified setup. FastPath gathers your site information in a short series of wizard screens, then automatically configures the environment to your specifications. FastPath will import your master image for your View environment and automatically deploy it per VMware and VCE best practices for your needs.
With the release of FastPath, VCE has extended our seamless support to include VMware View. This streamlines the support process for your environment and assures you of a single number to call, even with your virtual desktop support needs.
